When done right, a love song can sound saccharine without being overly full of its own sweetness. "Wonderful," the newest track from R&B singer Novel that perfectly features Chrisette Michele, manages to do just that. The simplicity of the lyrical refrain gives room for both Novel and Chrisette to really showcase their well-paired vocal stylings: his steeped in a tender, crooner-y falsetto and hers fluttering effortlessly with jazzy affectation. And the way the harmonies build toward the end intensifies the song's sweetness. Save a somewhat clunky spoken interlude from Novel in the middle, "Wonderful" truly is just that. [H/T: OKP]
