This week’s feature is the title track from Truth Hurts little known but excellent sophomore album “Ready Now”. The album found her stepping completely into the Neo-Soul sound she had hinted at on her equally fantastic but more mainstream-geared debut. I chose this particular track from a difficult choice as a fantastic album for its simplicity in its production by Kelvin Wooten (co-produced by common collaborator Raphael Saadiq) of an electro-influenced banging beat and haunting piano loop under Truth Hurts sexy vocals and sexually proclaiming lyrics, written and arranged alongside Taura “Aura” Jackson. If you haven’t checked out this album, I highly reccommend it. Its a shame Truth didn’t get another chance and the success she deserved because she was a talented vocalist and songwriter.
