This song is pretty heavily reliant on a sample - "Sometimes" by Bessie Jones - to the point that the the writers of that song are listed as co-writers on "Honey". It is very clearly Bessie Jones singing all the lyrics on this song. A later remix of the song included vocals from Kelis, but Jones is still central to the song. It doesn't exist without her.
To his credit, Moby adds a lot to the samples with his forte, and that's electronic music.
