What's the story?
Chris Brown, all of 18 years old, has matured since his last album -- as he shows on EXCLUSIVE, singing mostly about his fondness and appreciation of the ladies. Romance abounds on the love-infused "With You" ("With every kiss and every hug/You make me fall in love/And now I know I can't be the only one"), for example. He also gets help from a who's who of the music world (Kanye West, Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am, OutKast's Big Boi, and T-Pain).
Is it any good?
Brown's sophomore effort lives up to the hype he's generated since the release of his first CD more than two years ago. But it's more than just hype -- it's a collection of 16 solid R&B songs and rhythmic dance tracks that just might melt the hearts of teenage girls everywhere.
