Natasha Bedingfield 

Pocketful of Sunshine (Epic/Phonogenic)

1973379.t.jpg

Too bad "Love Like This," Natasha Bedingfield's hit duet with Sean Kingston, couldn't be held off for a few months. It would make a perfect summer jam. The British cutie's second album is filled with such warm-weather sentiments. "Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me/I got a pocketful of sunshine," she sings in the cheery title tune. And so it goes: Bedingfield puts on a big ol' smiley face throughout Pocketful of Sunshine. There's even a song about how much she loves her freckles. It's hard not to get swept up in Bedingfield's sunny R&B-speckled pop; it helps that she's a better singer than most of her contemporaries. The peppy grooves should fill the airwaves and beaches throughout summer.
