Kashif burst onto the music scene with his Billboard R&B single "I Just Gotta Have You." His urgent delivery oozes with vibrancy accompanied by a poppin' rhythm arrangement and some solid change-ups. It peaked at number five after 20 weeks. "Stone Love" commissions a funky bassline and seductive background vocals which contrast Kashif's zealous intonations. The single topped off at 22. With its moderately aggressive rhythm, "Help Yourself to My Love" finds the Brooklyn native patiently cradling the lyric. This album has one good composition after another. Kashif's adamant deliveries are poisely contrasted by cooing background. Though there are no authentic string and horn ensemble, the fomer B.T. Express member gets optimal use of his sythnesizers and keybaords. This is an excellent debut.
