Amazing how only a couple of years ago, to suggest a bone-fied R&B star like Chris Brown, record a tacky slice of commer-cial Euro dance like this would have been laughed out of the office.

Now it seems genres are cross pollinating. R&B stars aren't afraid to record blatantly cross-over music. Maybe because with the demise of the R&B and hip-hop buying market in the US gaining a world-wide cross over appeal has become of paramount importance.

Anyway this harmless piece of fluff left me cold personally but I'm sure it'll be burning up the dance floors in the Costa Del Sol, Mykonos and elsewhere this summer.
