Joss Stone Falls Flat With Reggae Experiment ‘Water for Your Soul’: Album Review

For more than a decade, Joss Stone has been a serial genre-hopper. Switching from R&B to blues, funk to rock, the 28-year-old Brit has powered six albums with soulful vocals beyond her years, ­attracting stars like Raphael Saadiq and Questlove to ­collaborate.

Rahman), who encouraged her to embrace the sound and assisted with ­production.
