"Let it Ride" - Robert Glasper ft Norah Jones

I had never thought of Norah Jones as soulful. And maybe that was my mistake. I'll own it. But in 2008 she laid down the sexy and soulful hook on Q-Tip's "Life is Better" and I was forced to rethink Ms. Jones.

Norah continues to prove how soulful she is in this coupling with Grammy Award winning pianist Robert Glasper. The beauty of Glasper's playing and the vibe of Jones' voice creates a scintillating tune that makes you want to turn the lights low and chill. It's a delicious song that you could easily replay again and again. And again.

It's only weakness is that it's capped by some Wayne Brady shtick. The lines are pretty funny but they seem out of place on the song. And I hate when I love a song but can't include it on my iPod playlist because the artist has opted to include needless chatter at the end of the song.

In this case, the sin is almost forgivable. This song is so good, I think I might be able to "Let It Ride."
