HIP-HOP SOUL'S SEXY SEX FIENDS RETURN WITH HOT NEW ALBUM AND (ANOTHER) NEW MEMBER


PRETTY RICKY
BLUESTAR ENTERTAINMENT

After dropping two gold albums, Hip-Hop/R&B group Pretty Ricky returns with their long-awaited and highly anticipated self-titled release, which will have fans musically and sexually entertained. Since the sexy horny toads released their sophmore effort "On The Hotline," the group lost it's original lead single Pleasure P, and his replacement 4Play/Ambition, who joined the rapping brothers Baby Blue, Spectacular and Slick' Em, on their singles "Cuddle Up" and their rendition of H-Town's 1993 award winning hit "Knocking Da Boots." Making things more complicated was the constant delays of their album "Eighties Babies" which was leaked to many bloggers forcing the group to leave Atlantic Records. After recruiting singer/songwriter Lingerie and getting distribution from Tommy Boy Records, the sex fiends picks up where they left off, and while the lyrics are sexual, they also sing and rap about romance and commitments as well as added more soulful ballads.
"The key to making quality babymaking music is first of all, you got to have experience in babymaking" Lingerie told Rolling Out Newspaper. "So once you have that experience, then you can get right on in there and make some good music."
The CD opens with a soulful intro where Linerie displays his powerful pipes against accompained by a piano, and Slick Em introducing the group, followed by their current single "Say A Command" which has that Roger Troutman vibe with Lingerie's natural voice singing along with his vocals programmed through a vocoder, followed by "Mr. Goodbar" which has a great bass line, keyboards, harmony and lyrics comparing their loving to candy, but Slick Em's saying 'No Homo' during his verse wasn't necessary. Especially if he's secured with his sexuality and masculinity. The album's lead single is still in heavy rotation in clubs as we speak. This track has a great R&B, Gospel and Rock vibe and hot sexy rap by Spectacular who's rap will have listeners getting moist.

We don't drink cups
We pop bottles
Fuckin' bad chicks
Next top model
White linen
With Gucci loafers
Said she cum one hundred times
Looking at my poster
Now she on my soafer
And she getting closer
So I bet it down
Like a G supposed to
Said she fantasize about Spectac
I fucked her a week ago
She still got a bad back

"Smash" features the brothers rapping against some smooth strings and accoustic guitars,also featured on "Menage A Trois", where Baby Blue and Lingerie releases their freakness at full force. What give this song the fire is the sound of a woman getting her ass smacked as he rapped and when Lingerie has a Proud Mary moment, where he sings the second verse nice and slow and finsihes nice and rough

And you say why they call you Lingerie
and I show you
why the fuck they call me Lingerie!!!!
No one can make a better melody than you and me


"Sticky" has a nice New Jack Swing/Keith Sweat vibe. The song has nice smooth breaks and powerful vocals by Lingerie, who sings smoothly on "Doggystyle" which has hot percussion, strings and guitars. This is a hot song for men who like to sex their male and female partners from the back and for women and men who like to get hit from the back. The soulful ballad "Lap Dance" will be used by many strippers and for couples who love to give and receive lap dances. This song features Slick' Em rapping smoothly and a nice call and response between Lingerie and Spectacular who does a good job phrasing while he's rhyming.
"Black" is my all time favorite on the album. It's a great way to honor being a Black man who will has no problems being a Black man who knows how to give you Black love. This song has hot breaks and Lingerie's vocals sound similar to Michael Jackson's pre-Thriller era, while Baby Blue's lyrics mentions Black Beat magazine and Black Tuexdo condoms.

Once you go Black
You never go back girl
Once you have me
You'll never wanna leave
Once you go Black
Ain't no turning back girl
Once you have me
You'll be begging me
Baby Please Baby please
Don't Stop!
Cuz I turn the left
but I grind to the right
Don't Stop
I mean I grind to the left
But I turn to the right
Don't Stop
Your love is so good
You got me confused
But one thing I know for sure is
Girl I know you'll like it
.


The group shows their romantic sides on "Prince Charming" a beautiful ballad that has a mixture of classical Music adding a romantic feel to the song that blends with their smooth raps and Lingeries falsetto. The CD closes with "Downtown" where Lingerie has his shining moment on a funky classic soul ballad. He showcases his vocal ranges and his vocals are so hot that he gives D'Angelo a run for his check book. Especially when he uses his falsetto in perfect pitch and tone.

Pretty Ricky's latest release is hot. I liked how they were able to add other elements and subjects to their sound and style. Hopefully they will add that on their next level while maintaining their originality.
