Sing (If You Want It)
Label: Tru Thoughts
Omar Lye-Fook may be relatively unknown in the U.S., but the U.K. singer-producer commands respect in the soul world. Sing (If You Want It), which originally dropped in 2006, five years before getting a U.S. release, features guests like Stevie Wonder ("Feeling You"), Estelle (albeit in rapping mode on "Lay It Down"), Angie Stone ("All For Me") and Common ("Gimme Sum"). With the exception of the legendary Wonder, none outshine Omar's uncannily rhythmic vocals. This new edition features several new remixes, including the Zed Bias-produced house-music hit "Dancing."
