Music Monday’s: Ray Jones – Mona Lisa
There’s something about it when an artist is their own producer, editor, writer, mixer, and have the ability to master their songs. Ray Jones is the artist whom I’m referring to. The single Mona Lisa, has this upbeat R&B beat going on.The keys and snares are truly the star of this record. It makes you want to dance, groove and be in the vibe along with his sultry vocals that have the question circling in your head of: “Who is the Mona Lisa he’s singing to?” Just when you think that this single is all vocals, here comes the surprise of his visual art of rap. Which once again proves that Houston artists make every cadence, bar, and rhyme their own. Making it nearly indescribable, as to who to compare Jones to in the industry. The transition of singing to rapping in that split second shows the versatility of Jones as an artist and mixing genius. The engineering on this, and the fact that he self-produced this, speaks volumes. Simply impeccable. A record for sure that will last throughout time.
