While I praised Songs On 12 Play with Trey Songz, Chris Brown’s other remix collaborations with the RnB hearthrob have been sub-par. Studio however provides a remix that we would hope to hear after praying for a Brown/Songz collaboration. The problem with their sound together is that they both seem to try to out-Hip-Hop each other, even though their talent is in their RnB music.
Studio does have a Hip-Hop vibe to it, especially because of the beat, but the song has some RnB influence in the vocals. The sexual tone sounds less subtle and more like a rap song, but both sound great together when they sing. As the song progresses the RnB voices of Brown and Songz tend to show more.
Overall, I would rate the song at 8.5/10. I love that these two are making music together, but I want more RnB than Hip-Hop. My hope is that we’ll get more songs like Songs On 12 Play and more pleasurable ballads with less sexual messages. I still think it is worth a listen though:
