Where have you been Frankie? I’ve missed you! I heard you released some albums over the past few years, but honestly nothing’s really caught my ear since your 2005 release The One. Such a shame, I’ve always loved your smooth tenor. Nice to see you’re back to work in the studio and crafted the catchy, if somewhat cliché, Dream Girl. Mark “MK” Kinchen’s beat is pretty standard 2010 pop/r&b fair, with little to no surprise factor. The same goes for featured rapper David Rush (who may be replaced by Pitbull on a later version), who drops a verse it sounds like he wrote on a post-it. Frankly Frankie (see what I did there?), I’m less than impressed with the track overall. As a fan of yours Mr. J, I wish you would have taken more of a risk instead of following today’s formula, but I completely understand your motivation and the real purpose of this song; to get asses on the dance floor and spins on the radio, which I’m sure are not far behind. That being said, do your thing Frankie, and I’ll wait for the next track to realmente me impresiona.
