Bobby V-“Dusk Till Dawn”

Bobby V’s 5th album “Dusk Till Dawn” is acceptable work from this R&B artist. Bobby V was born Robert Wilson on February 27, 1980, in Jackson, Mississippi. Bobby V grew up listening to the R&B greats, Michael Jackson, Tony! Toni! Tone!, Marvin Gaye, Jodeci, and The Isley Brothers. They were the artists that inspired him to become an R&B singer. Bobby V is another R&B artist that has been underrated in the music industry. In 2002 he was on season one of American Idol but did not make it. Bobby V was determined to pursue his music career. His three demo’s albums reached Puff Daddy who then forwarded them onto Ludacris and Disturbing Tha Peace president Chaka Zulu. Bobby V was the first R&B artist, on Disturbing Tha Peace Records.  Bobby V’s hit single "Pimpin' All Over the World", from Ludacris' multi-platinum selling album The Red Light District in 2004 was what made Bobby V the artist he is today.

I like some of the songs on Bobby V’s album “Dusk Till Dawn”. These are my favorite songs because of the lyrics. “Before You Break My Heart”, “First Class Love”, “Dusk Till Dawn”, “Nothing On You”, “Are You Ready” and “1st Class Love”. If a song does not have great lyrics, I can’t get with it. I think Bobby V should stick to singing on his songs. He does not need to have guest rappers featured on songs. I think it takes away from his R&B style. If anything have some guest R&B singers. I’m going to give this album 4 stars out of 5. Listen to songs from Bobby V’s album on Streetwise Radio. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on MyGen365, Athena365, Live365 and ITunes.
