I have been trying to write a review for this album probably for the last three days or so and failing miserably, it just seems to be impossible for me to put into words my opinions concerning this album when I am not even capable of understanding them myself. This thing is just all over the place, it has a lot of features that should not be here at all and is inconsistent as fuck to say the least, but the good songs are REALLY good so they kind of compensate for the bad ones, I saw on twitter ... read more
This sounds like the perfect tropical summer album!

It's no surprise that this album is doing well in South America and Australia. This is a SUMMER album through and through. Theo deserves all the praise in the world for writing some sticky and bouncy choruses throughout this album, matched with colorful and fruity instrumentals.

Well, I totally forgot to rate and review this when I first heard it, I don't know how but I forgot. It is pretty inconsistent throughout, but there are some really good songs on this. I love Leon, Bebey, Cuba and some others. A pretty nice little album though, would not hurt to listen.

Best Tracks: Leon, Bebey, Only You, Cuba, Whoop Tang Flow
Least Favorite Track: Marchin
There's not too much to say about this, I don't think It's trying to be much more than a loose track list of fun songs, and that's what it is. Most of these songs are super fun and do keep you coming back but that's pretty much where it ends. Feels pretty in cohesive and inconsistent where some songs definitely are noticeably weaker and not as memorable. All together I'm satisfied though, can't be mad with what we've got even if I might've expected a little more for such a long break
Fun production and genre fusions of pop, dancehall, rap, and R&B are what make “Bebey” an enjoyable and carefree listen. However Theophilus loses a bit of the structure and direction of the record with odd tangential songwriting decisions.
