Jones, Donell : Shorty

Melodious, crystalline clean and as essential as a fun-sized Aero

Crumbs, he's smooth, smoother than a smooth-smith's vanilla smooth, smoothing all over yo' body with this follow-up to last year's colossal, smoothsome 'You Know What's Up' (possibly sub-titled 'And U Betcha It's Smooth'). The inflatable chest of US R&B inflates ever more inflatingly, as Donell, this year, is "gonna put it on you tonight" with some "bubbles", apparently, even though you're a dwarf. Melodious, crystalline clean and as essential as a fun-sized Aero if you're a 12-year-old pansy-pop girlie. Which is fairly essential, as it happens, so go to it, gurls, and see off that Craig 'Craig' David character with his great big, blinkless, bairn-bewitchin' 'irresistible' eyes of, quite frankly, The Devil and that's true. Brrrrr.
