Introducing Joss Stone (stylised as Introducing... Joss Stone) is the third studio album by English recording artist Joss Stone, released on 9 March 2007 by Virgin Records. Stone began writing the album in April 2006 in Barbados, before meeting up with producer Raphael Saadiq in the Bahamas to record the songs. Introducing Joss Stone also features guest vocal appearances by rapper Common and singer Lauryn Hill.

Upon its release, the album was met with generally positive reviews from music critics. Introducing Joss Stone was not as commercially successful as Stone's previous albums in her native United Kingdom, peaking at number twelve on the UK Albums Chart and selling 27,000 copies in its first week. In the United States, it debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 118,000 units, yielding the second highest debut for a British female solo artist on the chart. It also performed well across continental Europe, charting inside the top ten in several countries. The album has sold 1.3 million copies worldwide.

Background and recording[edit]

Raphael Saadiq produced the album and co-wrote several tracks

Chris Anokute was hired by Virgin Records chairman Jason Flom to A&R Introducing Joss Stone with a budget of $1 million, which Anokute described to HitQuarters as his "first real A&R job".[1] In April 2006, Flom sent Stone to Barbados with Anokute for two months, where she began writing the lyrics and he helped her develop the songs.[2][3][4] Stone wrote an estimated sixty songs.[5] In collaboration with Stone's manager Marty Maidenberg and Merck Mercuriadis, Anokute developed the vision for the album, enlisting producers and musicians such as Raphael Saadiq, Novel, Dallas Austin and Common. Anokute also arranged a duet with Lauryn Hill, who had not guested on anyone else's record since her debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998).[1]

After spending months in Barbados, Stone travelled to Nassau, Bahamas to meet up with Saadiq, who produced the entire album.[2] "Raphael is the most incredible musician I've ever met in my whole life", Stone said. "Musically, I feel like he reads my mind. I'll give him a look and he'll know exactly what I want."[2] The two spent two months in Nassau recording at Compass Point Studios, followed by the album's mixing at Electric Lady Studios in New York City.[2]

Release and promotion[edit]

On 13 March 2007, VH1 launched a music series titled Album Autopsy: Introducing Joss Stone on its broadband video channel VSPOT. The series took an in-depth look at the entire album process, including Stone's songwriting process, recording sessions, creation of the album cover art and interviews with Stone and people involved in the album's production.[6] The deluxe edition of the album includes a bonus DVD containing behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with Stone and the music video for "Tell Me 'bout It".[7]

From March to June 2007, Stone performed on several American television shows to promote the album, including Late Show with David Letterman, Tavis Smiley, Today, The Early Show, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Dancing with the Stars, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Live! with Kelly and Michael.[7][8][9][10] Stone claimed that her record label cancelled all her upcoming press appearances to promote the album in the United Kingdom, as a result of the backlash that her appearance at the 2007 Brit Awards received from the British media.[11][12]

Stone toured North America in support of the album from 27 April to 13 June 2007, visiting sixteen cities in total, including Philadelphia, New Orleans, San Francisco, Vancouver, Seattle, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, New York City and Boston.[13] Two months later, Stone embarked on a North American late-summer tour, which ran from 27 August to 29 September 2007 and covered twelve cities: Los Angeles; Park City, Utah; Snowmass Village, Colorado; Seattle; Jacksonville, Oregon; Las Vegas; Mexico City; Austin, Texas; Biloxi, Mississippi; Chicago; San Francisco; and Kansas City, Missouri.[14]

Singles[edit]

"Tell Me 'bout It" was released on 5 March 2007 as the lead single from Introducing Joss Stone. The song peaked at number twenty-eight on the UK Singles Chart,[15] and became Stone's first solo single to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100, reaching number eighty-three.[16] The album's second single, "Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now", features rapper Common and was released on 23 July 2007, peaking at number eighty-four on the UK Singles Chart.[15]

Despite not being released as a single, "Bruised but Not Broken" officially impacted urban adult contemporary radio in the United States on 17 July 2007,[17] allowing the song to reach number fifty-five on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and number thirteen on Hot Adult R&B Airplay.[18][19] It was ultimately ranked number thirty-eight on Radio & Records‍ '​s urban AC year-end chart of 2007 with 9,049 plays.[20] "Baby Baby Baby" was released on 23 December 2007 as the album's third and final single, but failed to chart on any major charts.[21]

Introducing Joss Stone received generally positive reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 64, based on 22 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[22] Rolling Stone‍ '​s Christian Hoard felt that "[t]here are a couple of moments on Stone's third album when she clobbers a melody with enough showy vocal oomph to make even Christina Aguilera fans squirm. But for the most part, Stone employs her remarkable instrument with focus and nuance on Introducing, and the result is an album full of solid pop-wise R&B."[29] Mike Joseph of PopMatters commented that "[i]t's certainly the first great R&B album I've heard this year. While there's still the occasional affectation that I wish she would get rid of, Stone has grown into her music quite a bit."[28]

Tim Perlich, writing for Canadian magazine Now, noted that "[w]ith the fast-maturing Stone gaining greater control of her powerful pipes and a recent breakup adding to the underlying sexual tension while stoking the creative fire, the craftily reconstituted 70s R&B concept works exceptionally well."[33] Blender critic David Browne gave it three stars out of five and wrote that "[n]early every song is a souped-up retro-funk tornado, pushed along by blaxploitation-soundtrack guitars, scenery-chewing backup singers and, of course, Stone's husky pipes."[34] Both Billboard and Entertainment Weekly praised Saadiq's production; the former called it "brimming with horns and seriously in-the-pocket rhythm sections, but there are also enough hip-hop touches and contemporary arrangements to keep the tracks in the now",[35] while the latter opined that "[h]e brings a strong focus to Introducing Joss Stone, blending the digital crispness of modern R&B with Stone's preferred flavors of retro: swooping Motown-style strings, girl-group background vocals, gutbucket soul guitar."[24] In a review for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine found that "Introducing does sound brighter, fresher than her other two albums, pitched partway between Amy Winehouse and Back to Basics Christina yet sounding very much like Texas at their prime, but it's all surface change."[23]

Commercial performance[edit]

Introducing Joss Stone debuted at number twelve on the UK Albums Chart with 27,000 copies sold in its first week, failing to match the success of Stone's previous albums, The Soul Sessions (2003) and Mind Body & Soul (2004).[36][37] The album was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) on 22 July 2013, denoting shipments in excess of 60,000 copies.[38] The album debuted on the US Billboard 200 at number two with first-week sales of over 118,000 copies,[39] becoming Stone's highest-peaking album in the United States to date and the highest-charting debut for a British female solo artist on the Billboard 200 in the Nielsen SoundScan era,[40] beating the record previously held by fellow English soul singer Amy Winehouse, whose album Back to Black had debuted at number seven the week before.[41] This record was eventually broken by Leona Lewis's Spirit, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 in April 2008.[42] The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the album gold on 1 May 2007, within two months of release.[43] As of July 2011, it had sold 652,000 copies in the US.[44]

The album debuted at number six on the Canadian Albums Chart and at number one on the R&B albums chart.[45][46] It was certified gold by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) on 11 April 2007 for sales in excess of 50,000 copies.[47] In mainland Europe, Introducing Joss Stone peaked at number one in the Netherlands, and charted within the top five in Belgium and Switzerland, and the top ten in Austria, Germany, Italy and Portugal.[48] It was less successful in Nordic countries, peaking at number twenty-seven in Norway, number thirty-one in Sweden and number thirty-eight in Denmark, while failing to chart at all in Finland.[48] Across Oceania, the album charted at number fifteen in Australia and at number seventeen in New Zealand.[48] In March 2007, EMI reported that Introducing Joss Stone had sold 1.3 million copies worldwide.[49]
