For those who claim to know everything there is to know about DJBooth.net, here’s a quick trivia question: When the Booth started featuring new music, who was the very first artist to have a record put up on the front page? If you haven’t guessed by now, it was India.Arie, with her neo-soul single, I Am Not My Hair (the original version, before the beat was remixed and Akon was added as the feature). Several years later, Arie is back and ready to continue her Testimony (which began with 2006’s Vol. 1: Life & Relationships), with the February 10th release of Vol. 2: Love & Politics. Her newest single, Chocolate High, is a laid-back and relaxed duet with Musiq Soulchild (whose brand new album, OnMyRadio, dropped Tuesday) and provides exactly what you’ve come to expect from both artists.
