[CHILL POP] It’s always unnerving to discover a musician’s Wikipedia page is far more concerned with his or her soundtrack contribution to One Tree Hill than their actual full album catalog. Although Clarence Greenwood, aka Citizen Cope, helped marry hip-hop and blues into a commercially digestible concoction with his 2002 debut, his unabashed sentimentality and family-friendly beats have also earned him an induction into the Chill Dude Hall of Fame. Likewise, his latest album, One Lonely Night, shuffles with peachy reggae and string-blanketed folk pop. While the “chill” can be found in the stoned crooning, the lack of his former hip-hop fusion packs the album with more filler than killer.
