Jazzy Jeff put out a call to create goosebumps-inducing music, extraordinary musicians, singers, and songwriters answered, and they gathered at the Philly legend's studio to record. Then, after seven days, The PLAYlist: Chasing Goosebumps happened. The entire process was streamed online and allowed music lovers access to an unprecedented music creation process, which includes assists from James Poyser, Stro Elliot, Rich Medina, Aaron Camper, Eric Lau, Teeko, SiR, and more. Glenn Lewis is the singer who lends vocals to every track on the album, and his soulful voice melds perfectly with the melodies and rhythms inspired by foul, funk, hip-hop, jazz, pop, and samba. The music is warm, rich, and as incredible as the idea that gave birth to it, and "stores of frustration, anger, hate, inspiration, love, and hope" are effortlessly delivered, leaving the listeners wanting for more. Check out "First Time Again," "This Could Be Us," "Distraction," "Defeated," "Good Time," and the title track.
