Fan of a Fan: The Album is a joint LP, featuring the work of talented artists Chris Brown and Tyga. On their second album, Fan of a Fan: The Album, Brown and Tyga charmingly guide fans through a jaunty adventure; it’s a fun ride from beginning to end. An engaging and enticing show about their lifestyles is cleverly executed with a notable album designed to make the summer run smoothly with this as the soundtrack.

“Westside” includes a solid verse from Tyga and initiates the album off with some kindle. As an Asian-influenced production, it is certainly one of the song’s lasting impressions. This hook is seductive and definitely sexy enough for radio: “I see you workin’ that baby / You need to bring your ass to the Westside / tonight we tryin’ to freak some / bring a friend, bring a friend, it’s a threesome / so tell me girl what you drinking? we gon’ have a good time, it’s a party / so bring your ass to the Westside.” This mid-tempo record establishes a unified transition into the next record.

Brown drives the deliberately appealing record, “Nothin’ Like Me,” placing shame on the fraudulent: “He ain’t nothing like me” because “I got more money than your ex.” In a united front, Tyga raps, “I do shit you think about on the toilet / my cup over-running, flowing like Fiji water.” “Ayo,” is an essential part because it guarantees to stimulate album’s units throughout the summer months. The arresting rhythm is constant and memorable, making a lasting impression suitable for the upcoming sizzling months.

During the raunchy and imminent song, “Girl You Loud,” Brown warns his girl, “I’m about get on that ass right now.” Production contributes a lascivious nostalgia that is flawlessly seducing: “Just love me, love me down, now / and you a smoker, I’ma roll up, you blow it down / one more, oh, oh, girl you loud.” 

On next track, “Remember Me,” Brown, in an irate brilliance, speaks, “I wanna see a whole lot of licking / That’s some memory.” Fortunately, it is possibly one of the best tracks on the album. The production is reminiscent of the previous record but still dominates the moment. Tyga pleases the listeners with a showy moment, “Some foreplay, that’s all right / But she rather do number 69.”

Betting the odds on “I Bet,” this “shawty” will leave her man “because she wants to be on TV.” Tyga chimes in: “I got a hunnit on it / She ain’t faithful to you, n**** / Run around town, you know thoughts get around.” In a poignant lasting moment, 50 Cent clocks in the best verse with a supreme swagger: “After this stroking / I be nothin’ in her mouth like this / And you come home like, honey, I’m home, come and give me kiss.”

The West Coast-inspired production on “D.G.I.F.U.” is salutary. Tyga aggressively sings, “Ya’ll know me, the still same OG, young T-Y-G / Hated on by most these n****s / But I still keep shittin’ on n****s low key / I don’t f*** with you to the third degree / I keep a G, DMV, you owe a three.” “D.G.I.F.U.,” is a reminder of the prominent legend Dr. Dre, with the melody of his verse from “Still Dre.”

“Better” is the following track and the best of the rest. The relaxed ballad brings coherence to the album’s focus. A love lost is on Brown’s mind when he sings, “Should’ve treated you right / but every night I was livin’ life in the fast lane / I should’ve put my focus on you / In the club every night / I just get it wrong when you do right.” Brown dislikes his past choices, but sings to his heart’s hunger boldly and honestly. It is possibly the best moment on Fan of a Fan.

The next track, “Lights Out,” is yet another compelling and slow-burning song: “Girl just come home with me / You in the passenger side, when I’m drivin’ / girl you kissin’ all on me / Lickin’ my neck when my hand’s on your thigh.” The lyrics uproar with illusion and puzzlement. An imaginative production imbibes the lyrics in a mighty Mayweather knockout.

In “Real One,” Brown and Boosie call out a monotonous boyfriend as “weak” and “lame:” “I see your girl lookin’ over at me / she wanna turn up / I can tell by the look in her face / that she ain’t happy with you.” In a haughty fashion, the crew gives lively amusement in an exceedingly imposing record. Turning back up the tempo on “Bitches N Marijuana” immensely serves to dominate the clubs. The fellows parade about how they can have any girl, along with the best herbs, behind a jamming hot-blooded festive production. Continuing the party is the next track that is surely another summer party anthem.

Brown, for the most part, dominates the record, “She Goin’ Up,” and fuels the fire as the winner here. Brown is frantic and ready to take another man’s girlfriend: “I told her, ‘do better,’ said she’s open for suggestions / I said, ‘Come over to the crib and put your panties on my dresser / and I don’t really care’ / I know shit gon’ hit the fan like a booty in the air.” Relish in the commitment on “Wrong In The Wrong Way,” a fitting, urban and romantic keepsake. Proving gratitude, Brown sings, “She would never let me down, only want to lift me up When I got locked down in county / she was there to pick me up / mind her business, know what’s up / purple sprite, she pour it up.”

“Bunkin” is a ride through the hood, fulfilling unyielding satisfaction. T.I. is a clever harbor, bringing the hit factor into abundant lure: “Trap n**** known to have a quarter-mill a day / proof that selling drugs on the corner still pay / I make a hundred Gs, spend 40 on ki’s / put the rest away just in case I caught a real case / and I ain’t gon’ stop.”

Up next is the mid-tempo jam, “It’s Yo Shit,” which is undoubtedly a tribute to the late and great Michael Jackson, with its pop components. Tyga comes in running on the beat like a treadmill: “Sex on the dresser / legs on the leather / do it so good / I might let you rub my necklace.” Also, Wale gives a superior meaningful verse. The tribute is over, and it is time to put in the work on the masquerade “Banjo.” It’s a song that directs attention on the dance floor. Fans will be dancing, and the club will explode in a volcanic overflow from this heinous dazzle.

Fan of a Fan: The Album is solid artistry of contemporary R&B and rap music. It is impressively demonstrated throughout the entire duration of the album. The album is packed with thoughtful narratives and fun, modern commentary that is certain to connect with the younger demographic. Tyga and Brown has created the best joint album since, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s release, Watch the Throne. Brown and Tyga truly show their skills of creating popular music to continue their journey, expanding the anticipation and interest until the next project.
