"My mind's telling me no–but my body's telling me yes!" So says R. Kelly, neatly summing up the thrust of this sexy compilation of boudoir soul. The aptly titled BODY & SOUL includes contributions from artists as diverse as Babyface, multitalented model-about-town Tyrese, and the late Aaliyah. The latter's "At Your Best (You Are Love)" is perhaps the most poignant track here, conjuring memories of another singer prematurely deceased–Minnie Riperton–at her best. Freddie Jackson's soulful "Do Me Again" is pretty self explanatory, but the big surprise here is a 14-year-old Tevin Campbell inviting comparisons with Michael Jackson with a surprisingly mature take on love in "Tell Me What You Want Me to Do." BODY AND SOUL is an appropriately sophisticated collection that will satisfy both lovers of sultry down-tempo R&B and lovers everywhere.
