Though it lines up contemporary pop players from B2K to P. Diddy to 3LW, the soundtrack to the African American comedy, Barbershop also allows an older generation a little say.
The Staples Singers' gospel funk, "I'll Take You There," and Marvin Gaye's smoldering party tune, "Got to Give It Up (Part 1)," cap this urban set with a timeless note. Leading up to that, Ginuwine adds the sassy slow jam "Stingy"; Glen Lewis and Amel Larrieux duet on the cute beat-soul of "What's Come Over Me?"; and Ghostface Killah and Ruff Endz unite for the pretty "Love Session," a song equal parts sharp beats and soft heart.
P. Diddy and the Family strut more streetwise stuff, adding the snappy hip-hop shot "And We." But even the music-plus mogul softens up, uniting with Fabolous and Jagged Edge for the fluid, tuneful anthem, "Trade It All, Part 2."
