Jason Mraz, Love is a Four Letter Word

Mraz should have been celebrating after scoring his biggest hit ever with 2008's "I'm Yours." But after a serious relationship fell apart, the singer-songwriter was left picking up the pieces. Heartbreak is all over his fourth disc (check the country-tinged "The Woman I Love"). But the album also goes to trippier places: The jazzed-out "5/6" was inspired in part by his use of the psychedelic Amazonian brew ayahuasca. "I heard a voice inside saying 'love,' " Mraz says. "I came out of that journey knowing I was meant to create a love album."
