Old School Friday: Philly Neo-Soul

When I thought about this week’s theme, instantly the O’Jays and Patti Labelle came to mind, but after doing some research I also found out that Teddy Pendagrass, Delfonics, and the Stylistics were also a product of the Philadelphia Soul Movement. So I decided that I will cheat somewhat and turn my attention to the Philly Neo-Soul movement, and the queen of that movement is none other than Jill Scott.

Next in line is Musiq Soulchild, and this is one of my favorite songs from him. Maybe because I fell in love with bestfriend as well, but it worked out for the best.

Last but not least is Vivian Green. I loved her first album, her second album wasn’t that great, but I’m sure you remember this gem of a song.
