, follows, as Stone puts it in the liner notes, “a woman’s life, all the ups and downs, the trials and tribulations, and the joys….” And Stone is all over the damn radio, thanks to “No More Rain (In This Cloud),” which weaves in a riff from the classic Gladys Knight and the Pips weepie “Neither One of Us.” Although she’s touted as a talented upstart, Stone is no new kid — the South Carolina native has been in the game for two decades. It’s overwhelming, because it’s come from a long haul of stress and getting over the past and moving forward. I just feel like to run from it only creates mystery. D’Angelo’s an extreme talent, but he’s human, and that makes him subject to the same things all these other brothers are subject to. For the first time in a long time, adults have a record they want to invest fifteen dollars in. Would you please give her a major shout-out for me: Grege Morris? They have a song, and my son, little Michael, is the star of that song.
She was in the R&B bands Sequence and Vertical Hold, and has written songs for Mary J. We’ll just have to keep going to church.” You know how hard it is trying to drag a partner to church? I’ve done nothing wrong, so I have nothing to run from. I’m a real woman, and a real woman can face adversity head on. You thanked an army of people on your album — your trainer, Michael, for instance. He’s two, and he’s off the hinges, that’s all I can tell you.
