Avant wants to be both your lover and your friend. In a voice that is undeniably smooth, the Chi-Town singer reaffirms his undying love ("So May Ways"), confirms a mutual physical chemistry ("Stickwitu") and chronicles his supposed emotional maturity ("Grown Ass Man"). The slow jams are soaked in some serious sentimentality, giving the album a lovelorn sweet tooth that is fluffy fantasy for the modern-day romantic.
