Tears of Joy
Label: eOne Music
This is a compilation for R&B Divas, a reality show billed as a classy alternative to raunchy scream-fests like Basketball Wives. Faith Evans is the alpha female, but she shares the mic with costars KeKe Wyatt, Monifah, Syleena Johnson and Nicci Gilbert -- the five women appear on "SisterFriend" -- as well as Kelly Price ("Jesus Loves ") and Fantasia ("True Colors"). "Mr. Supafly" and "Sometime" stand out on a set targeted at an older audience, but only "Lovin' Me," where the women brazenly attack a media industry dismissive of mature black women, truly transcends it.
