In the midst of romantic trials, the singer seeks understanding ("Love Wouldn’t Count Me Out"), apologizes for causing pain ("It’s Not Worth It") and commits to working through problems ("Can We"). On "All in Me," Brandy assures a man that she’ll be his source of love, comfort and sanctuary when times get rough.
Eyes lock across the dance floor, leading to immediate infatuation ("Full Moon"). If only her passions quit there. Distinctly sexual tunes include "When You Touch Me" ("I wanna give in to you . . . Can’t hardly wait ‘til you touch me/How I want you so/Thoughts of you make me lose control") and "Like This" ("I’ll show you just what to do to me . . . Follow my lead/Don’t be afraid"). "WOW," "He Is," "What About Us?" and "Die Without You" allude to similar intimacy without the play-by-play. Several cuts are marred by mild profanities. Liner photos exploit Brandy’s sex appeal.
Suggestive lyrics and tight leather outfits stop well short of, say, Foxy Brown. Even so, this singer/actress (Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, TV’s Moesha) is determined to play the bad girl with, as Vibe notes, "a sultry scowl . . . come-hither lips and heavy-lidded bedroom eyes." It’s time to let Brandy move on and redirect teens to CCM’s Out of Eden.
