Next To You
Label: Laface Records
On her debut full-length, Atlanta R&B princess Ciara delivers a strong album full of knocking production (from Jazze Pha, Lil Jon, etc.) and seductive vocalism. Upbeat party anthems and butter-smooth love jams are the name of the game, with highlights including "Thug Style," "Ooh Baby" and the smash hit title track.
