Like Des’ree’s ”You Gotta Be,” Monet’s lilting debut is inspirational hippie soul. The vocalist – who sounds like Erykah Badu crossed with Nelly Furtado – uses a popular African-American apellation for God (”most high”) to convey the importance of self love, family values, and ending youth violence. It’s unlikely she’ll discourage crimes with ”Put down your guns/Self-respect is the best weapon,” but it’s nice to hear.
