Label: Universal
Key Track: "Rehab"

We'd call it blue-eyed soul, but homegirl's pupils were so dilated that we can't be sure what color they actually were. So much rawness—we mean the soul, not whatever she was ingesting—even Ghostface jumped on there. The first of many British white pop/soulstresses of the '00s, and far and away the realest.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
"Tears Dry on Their Own" samples the backing music to the Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell song "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."
