Just because Kenny Lattimore's Weekend was executive produced by über-producer Antonio "LA" Reid does not guarantee a hit factory. Sure, the music on this R&B affair is comparable to anything else out there in the genre (think Jagged Edge, but not as soulful or infectious). However, calling this album "comparable" is generous. Weekend, with its bland arrangements, cookie-cutter R&B sound, and lyrical vacuity, is a yawn. Hookin' up, the inability to breathe without "the one," and other hackneyed themes abound on this banal album. There isn't enough groove or vibrato, shirt-clutching vocals to keep listeners from growing bored, and fast. Find something else to do this weekend.
