Maybe it’s because I still have PTSD from the travesty that was Tipsy Texting, but any song with phone sound effects instantly makes me cringe. Thankfully Bobby V’s new Phone #, the first single off his upcoming album, might began to cure my fear of phones. (“Wait,” knowledgeably DJBooth readers are saying. “I thought Stilletos & T-Shirt was the first single?” Well, after Stilettos failed to take off, Bobby V’s calling a mulligan, un-singling Stilettos and rolling with Phone # as the “official” first single. Nice attention to details guys.) On the plus side producer Jazze Pha keeps the sound effects to a minimum, providing yet another light but catchy beat, while the always controversial Plies jumps in for guest verse assistance and Bobby V anchors the whole thing with his always smooth vocals. So, will Phone # have DJBooth nation dialing 911, or the request line? We’ll find out soon. Bobby V’s upcoming album Fly on the Wall still has no release date, but of course we’ll keep you posted on all the latest.
