Music Review

Flower

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Jody Watley; Genre: R&B

By all rights, Watley should have become the next Diana Ross: She's beautiful, versatile, and though her pretty voice is thin, it's silky smooth. All she needs is a hit, but this album, weighted toward ho-hum ballads, probably won't produce one (even the sexy ''Off the Hook'' and ''Baby Tonight'' are unlikely to top the charts). Flower doesn't droop, but it could've been fresher. B
