Joy Orbison – “Donnell”

Do you remember that movie Save the Last Dance? We wouldn’t be surprised if you’d forgotten it; it was an odd, MTV-produced tale about what happens when ballet meets hip-hop in the inner city, starring the lovely Julia Stiles. One of the highlights of the film was the soundtrack, and Donnell Jones’ “U Know What’s Up.” There was something about the cool that’s laced throughout that track, and while this remix has been available for stream for a while, Joy Orbison has made his version of Donnell’s cut available for download. Orbison has a way with r&b – you can tell he has a love for the genre in general, and it shows here. Let this one soak in, then rewind it and do it all over again.
