    They had a lot of R&B music recorded, but it never came out though. Sean "Barney Rubble" Thomas recorded a whole album (it was approved by Dr. Dre) in '94 that never came out.

    BGOTI sounded like Xscape mixed with HTown but they clearly could sing and seemed edgy enough for DR. yet another wasted opportunity

    Jewell might have been a phenomenal session singer but she was basically a backstory away from putting out shyt that would've fit that 90s R&B era where you actually had to sing. Her voice is light years more powerful than Faith, but Faith had a backstory and that story just happened to coincide with the label's biggest star. So she was gonna pop regardless. I;m sure back then all of DR's R&B acts relied heavily on the label, probably didn't write and the label got a ton of mileage out of their hooks then put them on disc's like Gridlockd/Gang Related/etc to fatten up the projects since there was no surefire Dre content to anchor it.

    DR simply needed someone to take the whole R&B "division" over, separate them from the label's image and let them either be soloists who did their own thing or be groups. Its insane that you could have Quik in exile producing Come When I Call for Danny Boy and not have him bang out 11 more tracks or at least oversee 5 or 6 of them. shyt woulda been easy. fukkin Devante was rolling with them heavy back then and they could wrestle some tracks out of him? Just crazy.

    and lets keep it 100, Jewell was the beta test version of Truth Hurts, who coincidentally, got Quik and Dre tracks but a weak label push even tho Addictive is a certified banger.

    Quik produced a lot of Danny Boy's material in '95, easily an album worth

    Yeah, Death Row really did need someone to take the whole R&B division over and anchor it.
    I agree with all of this except for her being the beta test version of Truth Hurts. I get the comparison in a way but Jewell vocally outshines Truth Hurts.
    Now don't get me wrong, Truth Hurts can sing her ass off! I just think Jewell is a better singer.
    For all the legendary work she's put in other artists' songs, it's a damn shame Jewell ain't even got her own hit record tho. Truth Hurts can at least say she got that.
