Zane - Big Zane Theory
Other recent reviewsMore album reviews
‘The Big Zane Theory’ first single is "Tonite, I'm Yours," an R&B-tinged song featuring Tank, and the album features Roscoe and TriStar on "How We Ride," and production by Timbaland, Megahertz, Stevie J. (Jay-Z) and Ron Feemster (50 Cent). This record has a calculated appeal, balancing lusty party anthems “Shake,” "Bounce," and "Do It, Don't Stop," with the more serious-minded "I.O.U." and "All $ Ain't Good $."
Along the way, Zane borrows liberally from the proven-success formulae of P. Diddy and Jay-Z, though he can only approximate the megalomania of P. Diddy and the commercial instincts of Jay-Z. And if Zane doesn’t quite make good on the rock star boast, at least he’s got the movie star thing to fall back on.
