Joe - Ain't Nothin' Like Me

2007-07-16 08:44
He hot-tubs it up on x-rated bump ‘n grind throwbacks like "Get to Know Me" and "My Love". He shows the method in his swagger on slick break-up/make-up ballad sighs such as "If I Was Your Man" and "Where You At". Then he reminds us why the best in da club come-ons never beat around the bush on the throbbing "Let's Just Do It", and g-spot stroking smooth jam “Love is Just a Game". It’s a consistently slick, chic R&B seduction. Shame then that those inevitable VIP cameo raps courtesy of Nas, Fabolous, Chamillionaire, Tony Yayo and Young Buck twist what should’ve been an intimate urban contemporary coupling into more of an R&B gang bang.

Calling your album Ain't Nothin' Like Me is one big pimping R&B playa pitch. Just as well that Joe walks the R&B Valentino talk then.
