Heart of Soul, Vol. 2 is another collection of post-new jack urban soul, collecting some of the most romantic ballads the genre produced during the '90s. Every song here was a fairly substantial hit -- at least on the R&B charts -- and collectively, they do a good job of setting a smooth, romantic mood. The artist list is impressive as well -- Mary J. Blige, Montell Jordan, Tony! Toni! Toné!, Johnny Gill, Boyz II Men, Blackstreet, Dru Hill, and Mya featuring Sisqo are some of the bigger names.
