We gave it a B+

This ’70s-style soul ballad blends Maxwell’s smooth croon with rousing backing vocals, mellow electric piano, and goofy retro lingo (”Never dug anyone like this”). No, it won’t make you throw out your Curtis Mayfield records, but ”Fortunate” is still a welcome slice of genuinely soulful R&B. B+
