Ja-Sheik: A New Beginning (X Labs Productions & Entertainment Inc., 2005)

Independent release by Detroit female duo who emerged at around the same time as Fe'Male at a few other indie R&B groups I also plan on mentioning. They were all promoted on a rather ancient Tripod webpage that is astonishingly still active after all these years.While Fe'Male was obviously aiming for a major label deal, this duo used their only album, released in 2005, to promote their "Stay drug free, stay in school" slogan. Although not as contemporary-sounding as Fe'Male, it is a mixture of R&B, hip hop and bass music.

Available to purchase here.
