Bobby Brown – Remixes In the Key of B is a remix album that was released when remix albums were considered a must have. Remix albums were the shit back in the 1990s. Anyway, this Bobby Brown album has classic songs such as Two Can Play That Game, Humpin’ Around, She’s My Lady, One More Night, Good Enough, Storm Away, and the famous duet with Whitney Houston called Something In Common.
Half of this remix album has that Teddy Riley sound and production all over it with the New Jack Swing sound filtered with smooth R&B considered soothing suited to your ears. Not too crooning though. That is not surprising considering Teddy Riley produced half the songs on this album.
Two Can Play That Game is a love about a woman who exhibits a mighty strange attitude towards Bobby. Bobby persuades this woman to stay with him throughout the song. Bobby’s got a brand new swing on this song of his. So listen to this.
This version of Two Can Play That Game is a remix which has Teddy Riley’s work all over it. His production has a smooth R&B sound filtered with New Jack Swing which he is internationally known for. In fact, this version of Two Can Play That Game has a New Jack Swing flavor. The song was remixed by Tony Masarati and Hakim Abdulsamad.
The remix of Humpin’ Around has that Wreckx In Effect sound to it on top of Jermaine Dupri and Teddy Riley’s production sound. Humpin’ Around sounds very similar to Wreckx In Effect – Rump Shaker. Both Jermaine Dupri and Teddy Riley’s work can be heard all over this song. The remix of Humpin’ Around samples Mandrill – Lord of the Golden Baboons.
The famous duet with Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston called Something In Common is included on this remix album. However this version is the remix and not the original version. This version has a New Jack Swing sound filtered with smooth soothing R&B.
Bobby Brown and Teddy Riley produced the remix version of She’s My Lady. This version features Chauncey Hannibal of Blackstreet, Omar Chandler, and Bernard Belle.
I rate this album 4/5****!
