He has always had it right with his lead single minus Deuces which was a whack ( good) lead single that worked.
"Dueces" was wack in your opinion? But "I Can Transform Ya" wasn't even mentioned???
Okay... Except for my personal thoughts regarding it being related to the Rihanna incident, the song was FIYA! It was hot, his vocals were their best and it was so chill. That's where he shines. His vocals don't shine on pop songs, though his dancing does on uptempos. But it's music before imagery.
And Run is contemporary R&B... a pop inflection, but not pop. It's what the likes of Bieber try to do.
"Take A Bow"... Rihanna's ONLY ballad to go #1 on the Hot 100 (also topped the R&B Chart)... Great deed for her most epic ballad!!!
