AllMusic Review by

It would be easy to dismiss Tyrese as just another pop pretty boy. Looking at his previous work as a model and VJ, it's hard not to classify him as a musician more concerned with commercial success than any real musical artistry. Listening to 2000 Watts, even the most cynical of R&B fans would have to admit that Tyrese has real talent. Flanked by a series of heavyweight producers such as Rodney Jerkins and Jermaine Dupree, Tyrese delivers a series of ballads and uptempo numbers that are bound to appeal to fans of BET and TRL, respectively. His first single, "I Like Them Girls" is a bouncing homage to women. Equally impressive is "There for Me (Baby)," a melodic ballad produced by Babyface. After a relative successful debut album, 2000 Watts demonstrates that Tyrese is a legitimate R&B talent with a lot more skills than a lot of people expected.
