    If Kreayshawn was out to make an inspirational, meaningful album to cure world hunger and start the ball rolling for her presidency campaign, she would have received a 0 for this album. However, if she was out to make an album of fun, twerk music (Which is pretty evident as even one of the tracks is called 'Twerkin!!!') She receives a 5, it's still not amazing dance music compared toIf Kreayshawn was out to make an inspirational, meaningful album to cure world hunger and start the ball rolling for her presidency campaign, she would have received a 0 for this album. However, if she was out to make an album of fun, twerk music (Which is pretty evident as even one of the tracks is called 'Twerkin!!!') She receives a 5, it's still not amazing dance music compared to Rihanna or Iggy Azalea's efforts, but it's still not dreadful. Positives of the album are that no two tracks sound remotely similar, and 10/13 tracks are twerkable and fun. A big positive is that Kreayshawn has mastered auto-tune. Whereas artists like Lil Kim or T-Pain overdo auto-tune, Kreayshawn has just the right amount to sound good yet not tacky. The singles (Gucci Gucci, Breakfast & Go Hard) are the highlights of the album, an opinion which other critics share, and guest appearances from 2 Chainz & Chippy Nonstop are also appreciated. Expand

    This is an okay album. The problem with Kreayshawn is that most of her songs have no sense she said that she makes music for fun ONLY. Highlights:

    Gucci Gucci 3/5
    Summertime 4/5 (V-Nasty is the problem)
    Luv Haus 5/5

    The rest of the album is completely garbage.

    Not bad for a debut album..but overall not as good as other hip hop artists. There is sometimes too much beat and production going on and the passion gets lost in the music. However, there are some songs that are worth listening too, such as "Blase, Blase" and "Gucci Gucci"

    Everything about this album makes sense except for her lyrics... She kinda ruined what could've been really great songs. There are definitely some decent songs on here though. The only song I think that really sucks is "Summertime".

    There's Something 'Bout Kreay is the sound of a record company trying to turn 15 minutes of fame into a career, and spending way too much money in the process.

    It is the preponderance of bland dance tracks (the inane 'Go Hard (La.La.La)', 'Twerkin'' and the abysmal 'luV haus' et al) lacking the wit of her previous singles, which consign this debut to a failure.

    Her delivery--nasal, slightly nagging--inevitably begins to grate long before the album's running time is up. But there are points of interest that take Kreayshawn beyond empty attempts at swag.
