B.o.B's jovial persona makes "So Good" an appealing listen; other enjoyable songs are "Never Let You Go" and "Chandelier."

"Play For Keeps" is the only song that has more of a hip-hop feel compared to the rest of the album's pop-sounding songs. The beat thumps hard and he rhymes with aggression, but on this album, it just doesn't fit. Of course, B.o.B doesn't want to completely abandon his rap roots, but what makes him special is when he puts all of his musical talents on display.
