If it wasn't for the BET show, "Midnight Love", I may have never known who Lathun was. I saw his video for the song "Fortunate" and that song stayed in my head so often, I decided that I would take a chance on his debut CD once it was released. Motown realized that Lathun had some talent and believe me they made a good assessment of the skills that he has to offer. At first listen, you may think that Lathun is a Neo Soul artist, but really he is r&b. After "Fortunate", Lathun has many songs that he can choose from to be the second single. The second best song on the CD is clearly "When Love Came In" featuring India Arie. This is a very nice collaboartion between the two artists. This shows that Lathun can perform the uptempo songs just as well as the slow jams. With the right promotion, this song can do very well. The majority of Lathun's songs are slow and midtempo but the listener will be far from disappointed because of the quality of the songs. Lathun writes the majority of the songs and he also plays an important role in the production part as well. "BBQ" is a nice summer jam that should definitely be played at any nice, warm cookout while you enjoy good times with your family and friends. "Sweestest Thing" which is also featured on Red Star Sounds, Volume 1, is very reminiscent of a Joe song and if you hear the track on the radio you may say to yourself it is Joe. This midtempo track is also in the running for the second best song. "Love Won't Let Me" has Lathun trying to stay strong although a woman that he was in love with has decided to leave. This gets the CD off to a nice start.Read more ›

I don't know why I bought this record, I have absolutely no idea. But I'm glad that I did. Lathun doesn't have the best voice in the world, he doesn't have the best beats on his album, and he's not saying anything that the world hasn't heard before, but he's pretty good at everything. I'm not really into the whole neo-soul thing, really really deep music makes my head hurt, and I'm not smart enough to decipher the code jupiter/mars language that some of todays artists speak about (I mostly listen to reggae music), but Fortunate just does it for me. There aren't any bad songs or 'skippers', you can just push play and walk away. My favorite songs are the opener Love Won't Let Me In, When Love Came In with India Arie, BBQ, and my absolute favorite track Find Somebody Else, but like I said, I like all the tunes. Its the best r&b album that I've bought this year (I admit that I haven't bought many) its cool, relaxing and it can close the show in romantic moments, everything I look for in an r&b record. Overall, I say pick this one up, if you like current style r&b music then you'll probably like this one, if you like neo-soul, like I said, its not partcularly deep so you might not rate this one that highly, but it worked for me.

I've been waiting for Lathun's debut ever since I heard "The Sweetest Thing" on the Red Star Sounds, Vol. 1 compilation album. However, I was a bit apprehensive on how his album would turn it... Thankfully, Lathun has kept the tradition of classic soul singers alive. The album isn't too slow, and it's not ruled by club tracks either. There's almost a track for every mood. Uptempo tracks like "Love Won't Let Me", "When Love Came In" (duet with India.Arie), and "BBQ" can definately keep your head nodding in the summer heat... On the other hand, tracks like "Miss Sally", "Fortunate", and "The Sweetest Thing" should definately be saved for quiet moments with that significant other... Either way, Lathun's debut album does not disappoint.

Sometimes you find a rare gem in a cluster of ghetto-fabulous, cookie cutter rhinestones...and LATHUN is truly one of the rarest. It's clear the label couldn't see the bottom line on this project or else they would have promoted it with a higher visibility. If this were a perfect world, this project would be re-released as a new artist (who really would know the difference) and market it to true music lovers. The same ones that love India.Arie, Musiq, Jill Scott and the list goes on. So since the world is not perfect and this clearly will be the most promotion this project will get...go ahead and order it, it is wonderfully refreshing.

Like many male vocalists of the neo-soul camp, Lathun's influences are clearly from soul legends of the 1970s. His impressive debut doesn't exactly break new ground, but he excels at what he does here. Well-crafted, velvet-smooth soul that soars on the strength of Lathun's voice. Highlights include the duet with India.Arie "When Love Came In" and the closing jam "Not Ready." Younger audiences will flock to the instant-gratification, sample-heavy, trendy singers, but if you're looking for a promising debut from an artist whose passion is in music and not image, then you'll be pleased with "Fortunate."
