  • Credits

    There has been a long line of MCs to try their hand at singing their own hooks (Nas, Ghostface, Ol' Dirty, 50 Cent, etc.) but none of them (with the exception of maybe Missy Elliott) have taken their voice seriously--it's always been a tongue-in-cheek thing. Latifah was the first rapper to do it well. After NATURE OF A SISTA, the Queen had critics taken aback upon hearing her vocals on tracks such as "Give Me Your Love" and "Just Another Day?"--who can forget that cut's seamless transition from sweet harmonizing to rugged street flow?
    On TRAV'LIN' LIGHT, the follow-up to THE DANA OWENS ALBUM, Latifah expands her vocal repertoire, covering a variety of jazz standards, soul classics, and guilty pop pleasures made famous by the likes of Nina Simone, the Pointer Sisters, Etta James, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and 10cc. TRAV'LIN' LIGHT features guest work from Christian McBride, George Duke, Joe Sample, and Stevie Wonder, who offers up his trademark harmonica on "Georgia Rose."
