Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Pleasure P f/ 2 Pistols
Title: Boyfriend #2 Remix
Label: Atlantic Records

I had no idea who Pleasure P was when this hit my inbox, not the least bit aware of his membership in Pretty Ricky nor that his solo career had been blowing up on the radio. Honestly though it takes a lot for any R&B artist to hold my attention for more than 15 seconds when I've got stacks of rap albums and singles from aspiring artists to the ceiling, and when I'm chilling and not reviewing shit the latest Joe Sanga isn't going to be my first choice for relaxation. The fact I even hit play on this one is an indication I thought Pleasure P was a rapper on the basis of his name alone. You'll forgive me that I can't tell you anything about the original song, but this remix with 2 Pistols is alright. The rap isn't that special, he's a "bawler" who's gonna "spawl her," whoever Ms. Cheating on Boyfriend #1 is, so it's actually P and whatever producer who made this track making it special. "I know you like it freaky, so I'm gonna give it to you/(I'm boyfriend #2) And we don't fuss, don't fight, don't argue/cause second place always got a whole lot to prove/So whenever you get in the mood.. just call." This might just be the 2009 version of TLC's "Creep" with the roles reversed. The high end of the ivory keys mingles with synthetic strings and an understated beat, although on the whole the remix may be a TAD overproduced - even less would have been more. I don't hate it and for any R&B single I played by accident, that's high praise enough.
