Happy New Year and Happy Disappointing Collaboration! Okay, so maybe I’m being extra hard on Chris Brown’s self released Look at Me Now, featuring the kings of guest feature slaughter, Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. From simplistic production that doesn’t get more complicated than overusing a flanger and a snare combination to Breezy actually being compelled to disperse a few bars here and there, there’s not a lot to celebrate here. Sure, Brown’s been known to vocally lay down some swagger, but embracing his cocksure attitude doesn’t exactly translate on wax. He delivers a 90% rapped 10% sung verse that Big Sean would have crushed with flawless ease but sounds awkward coming from Brown. Luckily placing a trademark Busta Rhymes triple-time flow and Lil Wayne’s attention grabbing reintroduction into the world on the back end keeps the track from being the first serious dud of 2011; the two titans turn Brown’s “verse” into an afterthought and leave listeners in a dizzy spell with numerous couplets stacked on top of each other. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a busy year for both Weezy and Busta, and hope that Breezy sticks to singing. Keyword - hope.
