Bow Wow & Omarian

Like
all great partnerships, ‘Bowmarion’ has not been without conflict.
Thankfully, the minor spat that threatened the genesis of Face Off
– the result of Omarion headlining the ‘Scream’ festival earlier this
year without his pedigree chum, Bow Wow – has been resolved. Whatever
the reason for the reconciliation, let’s non-cynically call it festive
goodwill, as this record deserves a place on the Christmas list of any
fan of syrupy, bedroom-bound R&B.

Bow Wow (20) and Omarion (23) first hooked up on Bow Wow’s 2005 top
ten single “Let Me Hold You”. Playing to their strengths, the majority
of Face Off occupies the same musical territory, albeit with
the notable absence of producer extraordinaire Jermaine Dupri. “He
Ain’t Gotta Know” and “Girlfriend” are perfect jump-off points for the
vibe of the record. Bow Wow’s rhyming style is slick and fluid, though
bogged down by cliché, complimenting Omarion’s strong vocals
throughout, and things are always underpinned by sweet, if slightly
lightweight, glossy production.

Eager to show they can accommodate a fanbase that stretches beyond
Nickelodeon, “Hoodstar” and “Bachelor Pad” are both bonafide stabs at
the grown-up-and-sexy market. The former sounds a lot like T.I.’s hit
“What You Know”, and the latter deserves applause for the best use of
pan pipes on an R&B record, like, ever. The only let-down is Bow
Wow’s clumsy metaphor – ‘We step on stage it’s like the twin towers
re-born’ – not quite up there with K-Fed’s ‘I’ll storm your block like
Katrina’, but close.

After a promising start, the second half of Face Off cries
out for some big name producers, if only to divert the ear from yet
another barrage of Bow Wow seduction. That aside, this is catchy, well
executed R&B, which displays the undeniable talents of its two
young creators.
