Don’t be deceived by Jah Free’s name; other than his dreadlocks, there is nothing even remotely Rastafarian or reggae-like about him. The West Covinia, CA artist is one of the newcomers to the Pop-R&B movement that has been all the rage lately. His new single, The One, is an up-tempo jam about landing that one special catch among a sea of women. For upcoming R&B stars, that sea can certainly look quite enticing. Producer Fingazz lays down some brisk percussion and light strings, providing a fitting backdrop for Jah’s airy vocals. The track may not have enough energy for club play, but it makes for good headphone music. While no official announcements have been made regarding the release of his debut album, it is expected to make noise sometime next year.
