The Turks in R&B continue to push back the boundaries with a style that is essentially so simple you wonder why no oneâs come up with it before.

Snapper, rapper and all round good guy T-Pain is about to launch his second album, âEpiphanyâ and this tempting offer is the taster. âBuy U A Drinkâ, subtitled âShawty Snappinâ, has all those essential elements that make good R&B tracks all so irresistible, but maybe itâs a bit too similar to âIâm Sprungâ to be dubbed truly memorable.

Yung Joc tries to stir things up but heâs too gruff for the overall vibe, and arenât you fed up with the braggadocio of stuff like, âWhen I whisper in your ear, your legs hit the chandelierâ⦠if only! Still, all very catchy.
