Mainly gave this rating because I felt that this really isn’t part of the mixtape, yet the mixtape garnered enough respect for me to help it out.
Overall Rating: 43.75 - 46 | 67 - 71% | Good; detracting problems; TRY IT
For some reason, I tend to listen to this mixtape more than his albums that came out, Ready and those other previous flops. I assume it’s because Trey Songz stays in his lane here, with twinkling, friendly, piano-laden productions from the usual suspects here. Whatever it is, I still don’t mind, considering the section of Famous to You Belong to Me is one of the more played sections whenever I’m in one of those moods.
While Trey Songz isn’t doing anything real special here, it’s the subjects that he covers (sexing a girl to make her famous, having sex, beds, more sex, and love problems, and such) that he tends to do well upon. Famous is a nice song because it sounds comfortable, as does Scratchin’ Me Up (Great R. Kelly themed song), and Infidelity is quite a song for Tremaine to croon over. Eventual album cuts You Belong To Me & Yo Side Of The Bed are quite simply put, songs that work.
While certainly not revolutionary, it’s one of the more consistently played because I feel that I know what to expect, and whatever I hear I know that I can relate at that time. Of course, the repetitive nature is what hinders the eventual outcome of this album, and it’s pretty much meant as a project to listen and then come back for a little bit.
