Backed by the mainstream success of "Don't Wanna Try" -- a Top 40 hit in the U.S. -- Sony Discos released what amounts to a Spanish-language version of Frankie J.'s What's a Man to Do. Apart from the change in language, nothing much differentiates this self-titled full-length from its predecessor. The amount of emotion is the same, and the vocal talent is as present as ever, so it'll certainly please his Latino fan base. Another positive aspect of the disc is that it isn't weighed down by the out-of-character posturing that held back What's a Man to Do. If he plays his cards right, Frankie J. will have a long, accomplished career ahead of him.
