With his last feature, Bobby V harked back to ‘94, flipping the Bone ThugsFoe the Love of $ into a smooth R&B freestyle. On his new single, the Blu Kolla crooner does himself one better, traveling all the way back to ‘89 to put his own spin on Bobby Brown smash Rock Wit’ Cha. Brown’s reputation may have suffered a few bruises since the record’s release, but the tune certainly hasn’t, and B.V. wisely doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. Production crew The Pentagon (who seem to have outgrown their former moniker, The Underdogs) hew closely to the original beat, concocting a slightly glossier version of its sultry groove, and Bobby V matches its understated appeal, turning in a vocal performance slightly more emotive than Brown’s. The retro-yet-fresh result has me convinced than this cover was destined to happen (he didn’t even have to change the “Baby, just touch Bobby anywhere” line!), but I’ll leave it to readers to pass final judgment. Those who approve can catch both Bobbys performing the song on Lopez Tonight this Wednesday, as well grabbing a copy of Fly on the Wall when it hits record stores and online retailers March 22.
