  • Summary: This is the debut album for the daughter of 1980's pop group member James DeBarge.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 4
  2. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. Exposed's airy, girlish pop--especially cotton-candy Casio grooves like 'Future Love' and 'Died in Your Eyes'--mostly recalls the female stars of her dad's era: Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Paula Abdul, and (coincidence?) Expose.
  2. Though her voice has yet to fully develop and lacks the uniqueness running through her bloodline, it's clear she landed a major-label contract on the basis of her talent.
  3. Although DeBarge has nothing unique to say about falling in or out of love, what she does have--strong tunes, a nice voice and an ample supply of fresh-faced charm--is far more important.
  4. On her Babyface-assisted debut, this 19-year-old nearly pulls a hamstring striving for the emotive power of Rihanna or Christina. But she's most fun riding lilting, girly R&B not so different from her dad James' tunes in 1980s group DeBarge.
