Conception[edit]

An article in the Los Angeles Times asserted that Ray J wanted to distance himself from his child star image from his days acting in Moesha, the sitcom that starred his older sister Brandy. Reporter Serena Kim noticed that the lyrics were becoming more "graphic" and sexually explicit.[1]

Sales[edit]

The album sold over 39,000 copies in its first week placing it at #7 on the Billboard 200 charts, and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart. As of 2013 it sold 300,000 copies to date.
