We gave it a B+

This slinky soundtrack will probably be remembered most for ”Turn the Lights Down Low,” a digital duet between Lauryn Hill and the late Bob Marley (and probably the best Marley cover from the Fugees’ camp). The album doesn’t stop there: It blissfully weds sultry commercial R&B (Faith Evans, Allure) with boho sounds (Meshell Ndegeocello) and resiliently inventive rap (The Roots).
