B.o.B., Strange Clouds
On his follow-up to 2010's acclaimed debut, The Adventures of Bobby Ray, the rapper delivers his infectious musings in a variety of sonic flavors. His penchant for radio-friendly genre mash-ups is reflected in a guest list that might overwhelm a lesser artist. Not the charismatic B.o.B. He easily traverses the stylistic breadth between the inspirational Both of Us, with Taylor Swift's gentle chorus, and the quirky Out of My Mind featuring Nicki Minaj's off-kilter verses. Lil' Wayne drops in on the potent title track. Chris Brown and T.I., join him on the celebratory Arena while OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder sings the hook on the rockish Never Let You Go.
