Ray-J – This Ain’t a Game (Review)

Brandy’s little brother Ray-J matures nicely on this sophomore set, with production by R&B hotshots Rodney Jerkins and the Neptunes. The singing/acting biz kid, who evokes Bobby Brown and ”Off the Wall”-era Jacko, sounds surprisingly credible on the hard-knock-life odes ”Out the Ghetto” and ”Wait a Minute.” The latter succeeds as a sort of hip-hop-soul update of the Bee Gees’ ”Stayin’ Alive.”
