Details Release Date: Jun 10, 2003; Lead Performance: Luther Vandross; Genre: R&B

On Dance With My Father, made bittersweet by Vandross' recent hospitalization following a stroke, the R&B legend raises the hipness factor with a guest roster that includes Beyoncé, Busta, and Queen Latifah. When Foxy Brown wraps her rhymes around the singer's soulful vocal caresses on ''If It's Not One Thing It's Another...,'' the melding of old and new actually works. Lowlights: his bland remakes of Bill Withers' ''Lovely Day'' and Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway's ''The Closer I Get to You.''
