Product Description

some pop music. i don't know...

J Holiday has some pimp in him, no doubt, and the late-disc track "Pimp In Me" isn't the only reason to think so: When this suavest of 2007's break-out crop of smooth R&B crooners isn't causing the ladies to swoon (check out "Bed," the radio hit that rides a vibe similar to Rihanna's echo-y "Umbrella" all the way behind closed doors and under the covers), he's establishing himself as a tough guy with a tender streak. It's a stroke-of-brilliance approach for a new artist--instead of becoming a standard-issue sweetie who ladles on the charm but can't do battle with urban music's big boys, he deftly straddles two styles on this debut. Silky, classic-sounding slow jams ("Suffocate," "Without You") suit him, but so do street cred-raising reminiscences of his gritty Washington, D.C., youth ("Ghetto," "Thug Commandments"). Holiday goes for broke, circling the broad R&B landscape, but he doesn't dilly-dally: Back of My 'Lac delivers pimp-worthy yet pretty songs that get straight to the point, the point being that this is an artist worth raising your modern-music hopes over. --Tammy La Gorce

After listening to J Holiday's "Back Of My Lac" you will be reminded of one of my favorite r&b CD's of all time from Christion entitled Ghetto Cyrano and an artist like Jaheim whose discography includes Ghetto Love, Still Ghetto, and Ghetto Classics.

I was first introduced to J Holiday when I heard the track "Bed", which I wasn't too much of a fan of at the time because the production sounded too much like Omarion's "Ice Box". Of course the songs were about two differnet things, but the songs sounded to much like each other, in my opinion. I had looked at websites like [...] and alot of people were giving J Holiday props for his live show and for the pre release sampler that J Holiday had out. So when his CD came out at such a reduced price, I decided that I would check "Back Of My Lac" out.

The title track get things off to a nice start as J Holiday just wants to relax and chill at times with a drink and his favorite drug of choice and just get away from the world sometimes. He admits growing up was a struggle for him because his father decided at an early age that he wasn't going to be a part of his life. The song is actually deeper than you think if you listen to the words carefully. However, some people may be turned off by the excessive and at times, unnecessary cursing.

I was on the look out for J Holiday ever since I saw the "Be with me" video. Then "Bed" was released and I was even more excited. I read about how he wanted to bring R & B back and waited with anticipation. Boy did he deliver. I listened to the album via BET the week prior and I was hooked. This is truly one of those "My Life" type albums where you can just put it in, press play and just sing along.

I was a little disappointed that he had an advisory on his album but thankfully I ordered the clean version via amazon.com. He has a little bit of something for everybody. If you want to dance listen to "Betcha Never Had" and "Come Here". You can also groove to "Ghetto", "Thug Commandments", and "Without You". Then he has those begging down on bended knee, baby I'm begging baby I'm begging, begging baby type joints like "Suffocate", "Fatal", "Fallin" and my favorite, "Pimp in Me". His falsetto in "Pimp in Me" gave me chills!!!

There are also the little things that no one else would notice that make this album great like the guitar in the background of "Bed" and "Fallin" and the background vocals in "Fatal" and "Fallin". You can tell he thought of everything because those little things make a song sound totally different. Overall I am extremely impressed and hope he continues to stick to the formula he used for this album for any future albums minus the cuss words. The cherry on the top is there are no guest appearances on this album which is rare in this day and age. Thanks to J Holiday, I think R & B will be making a comeback!!! Q

I am kind of in the middle on this album, I do not know whether to actually take this cat seriously or a joke. Is it me, or in every song he references smoking up and drinking, dude come on son. I understand this album was closely drawn from life experiences, but smoking and drinking couldn't have been all that you have done in life. Besides, this common concept on the album...vocally he has skills and I was expecting something similar to the mainstream hits currently hitting the air waves, but you can not get what you always expect.

Early in 2007, I was mesmerized by J. Holiday's single "Bed," a sultry love song that works as both a catchy single and a seductive slow jam. When I heard the next single, the equally wonderful "Suffocate," I was sold and went out to purchase "Back of My Lac." This is a solid debut album. J. Holiday has a familiar, youthful voice and delivery comparable to Usher, Trey Songz, Omarion, Chris Brown, or TQ. He's smooth and energetic, and is backed by some great production. Live instrumentation is found on most of the tracks, and the sound is rich and textured. J. Holiday struggles to find a balance between R&B balladeer and soulful thug, so there's a mix of tracks that display both characters. This conflict is a problem on "Back of My Lac." I much prefer the ballads, I find that the well-written ballads display his talent much better than the songs about the ghetto and smoking. A lot of the album does feel familiar, and listeners may be disappointed to find that no other track is as good as the two hits "Bed" and "Suffocate." At fourteen tracks, it's a nice length, but multiple tracks could be classified as filler because they lack originality or catchiness to make them memorable. Although I was a little let down by the album given the wonderful singles, J. Holiday's traditional R&B approach is refreshing in a year dominated by crossover artists such as Rihanna and Chris Brown.

The album opens wonderfully with the title track, a song about personal struggles and how to deal with them. I enjoy the subject matter and the funky production. "Ghetto" is a familiar track about urban struggle, and "Thug Commandments" takes a page out of Biggie's book for a decent cut. The single "Bed" was one of my favorite songs of 2007, with the great production, ridiculous lyrics, and soulful performance.
