After JSlow 6, I didn’t really have anything in the pipeline. With my son being born, I was buying less music so I decided to create a JSlow tape specifically focusing on one singer or group which meant I didn’t have to buy any new music to make the tape. I thought about doing Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder, but for some reason, I went with Jodeci. Why? I’m not exactly sure, but I’d bet it was because of K-Ci and Jojo’s All My Life. That was “our” song. And by “our”, I mean that when K-Ci and Jojo’s Love Always came out, I told my now ex-wife about the song (several months before it hit) and it became “our” song. It’s still fun to listen to that song today because while it doesn’t have the same meaning, it definitely makes me smile.

And I think roughly all the babies born between 1991 and 1994 were created to a Jodeci song.

JSlow 7: The Jodecidal JSlow (circa late 1999 – meaning only the first two K-Ci and Jojo albums were used)

1. Forever My Lady – Jodeci
2. Hello Darlin’ – K-Ci and JoJo
3. Cry For You – Jodeci
4. How Could You – K-Ci and JoJo (Bulletproof Soundtrack)

Ain’t no more blue left in my sky, only cloudy moments

5. Lately (live version) – Jodeci
6. Stay – Jodeci
7. Love U 4 Life – Jodeci
8. Don’t Rush (Take Love Slowly) – K-Ci and JoJo
9. Feenin’ – Jodeci
10. Life – K-Ci and JoJo (Life soundtrack)
11. Come And Talk To Me – Jodeci
12. All My Life – K-Ci and JoJo
13. I Care ‘Bout You – Milestone (Soul Food soundtrack)
14. Tell Me It’s Real – K-Ci and JoJo

  • What’s funny to me is that Life isn’t even a love song. But it was a song on the movie Life starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, and at the time, it was the best possible duo ever on screen for me. I also really liked the song.

  • I didn’t add Last Night’s Letter for some reason, which was actually the second single on K-Ci and Jojo’s rookie album, and the single before All My Life.
  • I always thought the Cry For You video was odd because Jodeci was in the desert, but wearing leather and Sox caps.
  • How Could You was the lead single from the Adam Sandler and Damon Wayons movie Bulletproof which was awful and great all at the same time.
  • The live version of Lately (a Stevie Wonder cover) is just fierce.
  • Feenin’ was heated and all of a sudden I had a new word in my vocabulary that normal people didn’t understand.
  • I Care ‘Bout You was a song from the movie Soul Food and was a made up group featuring K-Ci and Jojo, Babyface, and his brothers Kevon and Melvin Edmonds.
  • Tell Me It’s Real was the lead single for K-Ci and Jojo’s second album called It’s Real.
