Canton Jones delivers a positive spiritual surprise with the project Love Jones. Canton Jones: August 16, 2005 Album Release Titled: Love Jones is sure to be a success.

From conga riffs and acoustic flutes, strong tones of reggae, Latin, R&B, contemporary, and traditional gospel Canton Jones introduces to the music world one the most musically diverse projects in Holy Hip Hop.

Canton Jones delivers a positive spiritual surprise with the project Love Jones. The message of praise, love, hope and inspiration in everyday life keeps the listener wanting to dive in one song after another eager for the next hot musical mix. Jones continues to prove the God given-ability of a talented singer, songwriter, producer and vocal arranger all in one package with his sophomore project, which is quite different from his freshman project, Canton Jones.

One of the album star surprises is the foot stomping song “Fix-It”, which includes his father adlibbing on the phone, I said, “on the phone!” to the well known spiritual with a touch of R&B and Hip Hop flavor. This song clearly shows where he gets those strong vocal cords and spirited-filled lifestyle. The song absolutely leads you into having “church” towards the end with the classic way his father continues even after the mix stops. “Dance”, smoothly invites you into a nice soft praise song that shows Jones rich vocals and smooth R&B background vocals. “Dance” continues to take you on a peaceful vocal ride that allows you to lie back and enjoy the lyrics.

The artist Redd and Esso lean their musical talents on the song “It’s Your Birthday” that helps you to enjoy some upbeat praise, along with Lil IROC on the track, “Goodtime”. Another great surprise is the fully musical stringed “#1 Fan” with Jones vocals pulling you in with every word showing his versatility.

Love Jones is truly one of Holy Hip Hop’s refreshing surprises sure to take the listener/musical lover on a true adventure of a complete musical experience.

Throughout his project Jones shows us a family man side just by naming the project after his baby daughter (‘Love Jones’). To sum it all up one can tell that Christ is the center of Canton Jones music and Canton Jones is sure to gain number one fans wherever he Ministers the Gospel.
