Stevie Wonder: So What The Fuss

This is the kinda tune that makes you feel real good. The undisputed genius of modern music returns after (too many) years with a tune that is pretty damn good. "So What The Fuss" is massive and features all the best bits of classic Stevie for a new generation. It's very few people, myself included, that can remember the thrill of a new Stevie tune dropping, and he definitely hasn't half stepped.

The keys-driven track features En Vogue on backing vocals and Prince on guitar proving Stevie's impressive pulling power. Maybe we can expect big things in that department from the forthcoming album.

And don't let anyone tell you that the late eighties were a terrible time for Stevie - the "Jungle Fever" soundtrack was off the hook

Even though the Q-Tip "Shook Ones" remix isn't featured here you can hear it on your local dancefloor. The biggest (out: May 2).

Verdict: So good to have him back.
