BURBANK, CA Monday Jan.5.2004 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Stevie Wonder said recently that his favorite CD out now is OutKast's 'Speakerboxxx/The Love Below' and that he also likes Jay-Z, but feels the need to remind R&B/Urban artists to do something different.

"The R&B scene is good," Wonder said. "India.Arie is an amazing songwriter, while my favorite CD now is OutKast's 'Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.' And I like Jay-Z. But artists need to take some steps to do something different in these times. They have to talk about more than just kissing a woman all over her body -- although that's a wonderful thing. But we have to kiss life all over the place. Be real. We're all part of the united human family."

We're family? Cool, may I borrow the car?
