Just Walk On By

Album: Randy Jackson's Music Club, Vol.1 (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This features Joss Stone on vocals. Randy Jackson, who is a judge on American Idol, explained to Reality Rocks why he chose the British singer for this track: "Well, basically I have a lot of friends because I've been in the business a long time and worked with a lot of people. I thought as I wrote songs along the way, who would sound best on each song? The Joss Stone song came about because it was a very different thing for her, almost more of a hip-hop thing for her."
