Chris Brown - Exclusive

2009-03-03 11:26
Exclusive is a so-so collection of commercial hopefuls ("Wall to Wall" and "Kiss, Kiss"), new jack swing revisits ("With You" and "You") and PG-rated Usher-styled love jams ("Take You Down" and "Damage"). While collabs with Will.I.Am, Big Boi, Kanye West and Lil Wayne sprinkle an otherwise pop-ish album with a polished hip-hop flavour, the bonus track "Nice" (with The Game no less) actually appears to be Chris Brown's search for some street cred.

Baby boy, there's no need to be street, it'll ruin your boyish good looks!

- Megan Kakora

Ladies, he's finally 18! And guess what? Yes, Chris Brown's 'exclusive' second studio album shows off his musical hip-hop maturity. But chill, it also appeals to his younger pop fans.
