This album was dope I give it 4 stars 1/2 out of five stars. Tim & Bob always have dope tracks for Bobby V and the songwriting was dope. There was songs like Checkin For Me , Anonymous produced by Timberland, Darkchild Turn The Page and Rearview ft. Ludachris written by J.Que the Clutch, I Was Wrong and a song called If I Had My Way which was a remake song by Jeffrey Osborne. The album producers and rappers like Tim and Bob, Darkchild, Ludachris and Fabolous making this album one of the hottest albums of 2007. You can play it while you’re driving or play it at home. It’s a dope R&B Album
Favorite Songs: Checkin For Me, I Might Not Be, Anonoymous, I Was Wrong, Can’t Wait Til Later and Turn The Page.
2. Neyo- Because Of You

First off I admire Neyo because he writes his own songs and seek production from no name producers like Stargate who produce his hit song So Sick. Also cause he wrote some of my favorite songs for like Mario’s Let Me Love You, Mario What’s It Gonna Be and Usher’s I Can’t Win. This Album was dope too but it wasn’t better than his last album In My Own Words.

Favorite songs: Go On Girl, Make It Work, Because Of You, Crazy and Sex With My Ex.

3. Chris Brown- Exclusive

This Album was one of the best Albums of the 2007. This is a five star album. There was production and songwriting from Pharell Go, Timberland, No Definitionby Polo Da Don, Crying Out For Me, Oak Why and What’s It Gonna Be Written by Neyo. Mario brought it!!! He’s one of the Best Male Vocalist of Today besides Usher who is making a comeback. Mario doesn’t get the pay due he deserves.
Favorite Songs: Crying Out For Me, No Definition, How Do I Breathe, Why, Music For Love and Go. There were a lot of songs that didn’t make the album too. You might want to look into that.
