The last time Ray J really broke through with a single was "I Hit It First," which, while being admittedly catchy, was more tied to the absurd concept than the song itself. The RnB singer is ready to do it right with "Brown Sugar," a hooky new number with a surprisingly great melodic turn from Wayne, who brings it back to his post-Carter 3 experiments with singing. Both Ray J and Wayne rock some unconventional headgear throughout the clip, but when you're surrounded by beautiful women and waterfalls, you can pull pretty much anything off.
