Jerzee Monét – Love and War (Review)

Where most current R&B divas come off like war correspondents from love’s battlefields, Monét — despite her album’s title — has a loftier vision. Love matches airy grooves with lyrics about respecting elders, loving oneself, and praising God. But even with cameos from DMX and Eve, the set lacks bite. And Monét’s clipped, reggae-influenced delivery sometimes grates. Still, for the most part, Monét is soulfully sunny without being too head-in-the-clouds silly.
