I Wanna Go There

On his inaugural J album, Tyrese returns to the old-school-rooted R&B he led with in 1998 à la the top 10 hit "Sweet Lady." Evidence of that can be heard on his current chart-climbing lead track, "How You Gonna Act Like That." Overall a much stronger effort than his last RCA project, 2000 Watts, this new album shines brightly when the former Coke pitchman works out on such ballad/midtempo numbers as the Musiq-sounding "U Don't Give a Damn About Me" and "I Must Be Crazy," while uptempo foray "Girl Can't Help It" pales in comparison.
