Will Smith Born to Reign Pop Music CD Review
One word describes the CD Born To Reign from Will Smith… AWESOME!
I wish it weren’t the case but, it’s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can’t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Born To Reign. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.
One of the refreshingly nice things about this CD is the way all of the participating artists seem to be really enjoying themselves. Combine that with the overall presentation and you’ve got one of Will Smith’s most impressive releases ever.
If you’re even mildly into Pop music you’ll enjoy this CD. Overall Born To Reign is an a great release. I give it my double thumbs up. You will not be disappointed with one single track.
While the entire CD is outstanding some of my favorites are track 2 – Act Like You Know, track 11 – I Gotta Go Home, and track 14 – Momma Knows
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Born To Reign. It’s a great track!
