AllMusic Review by

What's a Man to Do? is an accomplished -- if everyday -- contemporary R&B album from Frankie J, a singer who's still quite young but has plenty of experience in the music business. With a background in Latin freestyle and Latin pop, Frankie J has made a smooth, stylistic transition on this album, made evident by the Top 40 single "Don't Wanna Try," one of several ballads here (it's also a rather daring rip of Force M.D.'s' "Tender Love"). The ballads are most convincing on this album; when Frankie J is in braggart mode, especially on the party jam "Drinks on Me," he comes off as stilted and desperate for credibility.
