Dear Jayne: Rain (Promo CDM) (Music Line Group/Capitol, 2008)

Debut release from another R&B trio from the mid 2000s, this time put together by the mastermind behind Ciara and signed to Capitol Records between 2006-2008. Described as an answer record to Rhianna's "Umbrella", it managed to break into the Billboard R&B chart but their debut album "Voice Message" was a no-show, despite featuring production from big-name producers at the time The-Dream and Christopher 'Tricky' Stewart.

Produced by Carlos McKinney, it's pretty much as you would expect from mid-2000s electronic-pop R&B but they do have pretty decent voices...
