Brittany Howard - Jaime
Jaime is 35 minutes of almost solely uninterrupted greatness.
Howard masterfully bobs and weaves between genres, never letting the listener get fully situated. In fact, there’s no real defined pace or mood carried consistently throughout the record, which actually works here. Howard is showing us just how easy it is for her to do it all.
On “History Repeats”, Howard slurs and chants effortlessly over a futuristic funk production. Then, on “He Loves Me”, she delivers what youth pastors in beanies have been trying to accomplish for years: a genuinely cool and — dare I say — relatable song about her relationship with God. “I know he still loves me when I’m smoking blunts/ Loves me when I’m drinking too much,” Howard sings.
