Review

One of the busier members of the Brown Eyed Girls when it comes to solo material returns with her third mini-album Truth or Dare. This time around she comes swinging with some Urban Pop type of material.

This is most evident by the lead track FxxK You, which is not a cover of the Cee-Lo hit of the same name. It does however have a similar kind of slick, crotch chopping; bugger off type of feel to it.

Hearing the f-bomb never sounded so sexy.

The other song worth noting is the funky Truth or Dare which may or may not have a bit of Blurred Lines type of groove to it. That really depends on whether you’re sick of that song or not.

I thought the track was perfectly fine and I don’t particularly care if it ripped off the Robin Thicke song (that supposedly ripped off a Marvin Gaye song) or not. For me, it’s neither here nor there. The best part of this song was the short drop into a Brown Eyed Girls classic during the second verse. I won’t spoil it for you but it was a nice touch.

So what about the rest of this EP? I wouldn’t call the album cuts filler and they all manage to keep the high generated from the first two tracks going. What you get out of them will depend on your mood and/or taste at the time of listening.

Overall Truth or Dare is another great addition to the growing catalog of Brown Eyed Girls solo projects. Whether the members are together or apart they certainly manage to deliver every time.
