The Life Event Soundtrack features four songs from rising R&B stars JaVonté, A-natural and Sam Trump and Calvin Valentine.
JaVonté's contribution is the excellent "Helium Baloon," featured on his 2014 album Where Have You Been. Meanwhile, Sam Trump and Calvin team up for the woozy cut "That Thing." Tempered with trumpet and watery Rhodes keys, it's a romantic jam that aims for the heartstrings. It's A-natural that gets the most shine though, as two of his songs from different EPs make the cut here.
"Introductions" is a freaky little jam about a ménage à trois that is sure to fog up your glasses and steam up your nights. He flips the script for his second appearance, though, with the happy-go-lucky "The First Thing." All about finding a love that makes you want to wake up with a smile each day, its effervescence is infectious. While each song is quality, what's most refreshing is that each offers something that you'd never hear in the mainstream, effectively giving each artist their due.
