Joss Stone rose to stardom in 2003 after her her debut album The Soul Sessions went multi-platinum. Her second album, Mind, Body, & Soul topped the UK charts and after her Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2005, her career only kept progressing in the right direction. “You Had Me” and “Fell in Love With a Boy” are only two of her many recognizable songs to date.
Water for Your Soul, is somewhat a coming of age story, illustrating through her soulful sound, how the teen prodigy has blossomed into a new artist of style and substance. The album dabbles in the pulsing sounds of reggae, the sonic adventures of hip hop, and romantic and exotic tones of R&B. It is definitely what would be referred to a “combination album,” joining together a number of genres and sounds. For her fans, Water for Your Soul is definitely expected to hydrate the soul.
