Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: JAB f/ J. Strode
Title: Alright
Label: FrontStreet Records

Fledgling label FrontStreet Records are trying hard to make a name for themselves on their "52/50 Campaign" compilation, with this single being the latest to branch out from that album. It's also the FIRST one that I've listened to, and although I was initially skeptical it's... well, forgive the pun but it's alright. This is a song tailor made for the club, as we stand behind JAB and an interested female, overhearing their conversation about what he can do for her. There's a little bit of clever wordplay, nothing mind-blowing, but lines like "I don't treat you like a (w)ho...le lot of the chicks I done hit before" are enough to catch my attention. His partner J. Strode is a tolerable singer for the hook, not likely to win America's Got Talent, but not embarassing himself or JAB either. I'll be a little more inclined to check for FrontStreet now after hearing this one.
