Grammy-nominated R&B singer J. Holiday recently sat down with Examiner.com to discuss his recently released third album, Guilty Conscience, his label, Holiday Music Group, his charity, Holiday Helps, and other endeavors in an exclusive interview.
Holiday gained prominence with the hit singles "Bed" and "Suffocate," and followed up that early success with an album that was called a "conceptual victory" by Youknowigotsoul.com. Guilty Conscience is R&B at its sexiest, and also an excellent display of Holiday's storytelling.
The album is reminiscent of a time in R&B when the art of seduction was still alive, and thankfully lacks the pop-heavy production present on many recent R&B songs. The 12-track project is also co-executive produced by Holiday, and does not feature any guest appearances. This was a wise decision, as Guilty Conscience is the singer’s first studio release in five years, and fans were eager for his return. A feature-heavy project would have diluted the experience.
An artist collaboration may be in the future for Holiday, however. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com, he revealed that his frequent performances on the same bill as fellow crooner Jon B. may lead to a full-blown tour. Holiday divulged that it won’t be called “The Baby-Making Tour,” although there will surely be a lot of that going on if these two gentlemen hit the road together. R&B fans be warned.
