Joi Campbell: J Rising Sampler (J Records, 2001)

Joi Campbell was a solo R&B artist signed to J Records in the early 2000s and the sister of producer Warryn "Baby Dub" Campbell. Before that she starred in a minor role in the TV series Moesha with Brandy Norwood. After one song Keep It Movin' (produced by Warryn), she vanished from the roster completely. Whether or not she was competing with Davis' other new signee Monica Arnold or the two were just too similar, I don't know, but she re-appeared in 2004 signed to My Block Records.

Included on this set is her first and only single for J Records and another slow jam Love Story, which may or may not have been her follow-up...
Keep It Movin' 3:32
Love Story 4:53
