For the unfamiliar, C.J. Hilton looks to be the next R&B sensation J Records/RCA hopes to put on the map following in the tradition of Alicia Keys, Mario and more. His still untitled album is currently in the process of being put together and “So Fresh” may or may not be the single which gets some backing this summer. Regardless, grabbing Salaam Remi and Nas isn’t a bad look whatsoever. Like Legend noted, the vibe of the record is somewhat reminiscent to Jazmine Sullivan’s “Holding You Down.” Even as C.J. borrows vocals from the late Marvin Gaye and The Four Tops, the guest verse from Nasir is the standout here.
“My orator, the way I walk in a room and grab attention
Along with no henchmen and my music not to mention
That I’m a Don with the biggest chain on
And Nas “Rule The World” is her favorite song
But the wildest part of all this how we became friends
I was walking out divorce court, she was walking in…”
