Dusk Till Dawn
Label: eOne Music
Bobby Valentino is years removed from his brief pop heyday with Ludacris' Disturbing tha Peace, but he still has industry clout. His Dusk Till Dawn includes guest appearances from heavyweight rappers like Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane; Future's guest spot on "Tipsey Love" works best. Despite the cameos, Bobby doesn't offer any surprises, but he excels at a certain kind of R&B ballad -- the babymaking kind, of course. He's not one for subtlety, either, and even titles one track "Put It In," for heaven's sake. Other highlights include "Are You Ready," "Nothing On You" and "1st Class Love."
