I learned so much in making this record – keep pushing until your music moves you'. Making my first record, On How Life Is, was cool because I wasn't expecting anything from it. I'd made a record before on Atlantic, and nothing happened with it – I ended up getting dropped from the label. So this time around, I was on a new label, with a whole bunch of new musicians, and I had no expectations at all. That's a really awesome place to be when you make a record: there's no disappointment, and everything you do feels like a surprise

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Funk is back, and Macy Gray has brought an entourage of naughty lyrics to go along with the reminiscent sound of her rump-shaking, platform-boot tapping beats. If you think Donna Summer got nasty with "Love to Love You, Baby," you haven't heard anything until you've heard "Caligula". Miss Macy gets down and dirty, letting it fly with her proclamation of wicked sincerity to a lover in "Sexomatic"
