Will Smith Big Willie Style Pop Music CD Review


Very talented Pop artist Will Smith has released him latest CD titled Big Willie Style and Wow! It’s good.

Will Smith has been a heavy hitter in the Pop genre for quite some time now and Big Willie Style is an excellent illustration as to why.

One of the refreshingly nice things about this CD is the way all of the participating artists seem to be really enjoying themselves. Combine that with the overall presentation and you’ve got one of Will Smith’s most impressive releases ever.

If you’re even mildly into Pop music you’ll enjoy this album. Overall Big Willie Style is an a great release. I give it my double thumbs up. You will not be disappointed with one single track.

While this entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 3 – Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It, track 10 – Just The Two Of Us, and track 16 – Men In Black.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 2 – Y’All Know. It’s a great track!
