What do you do for a sophomore follow-up to one of your most celebrated works? You stick to the script and add even more pillow talk with such numbers as “You Remind Me of Something,” “I Can’t Sleep (If I),” and “Down Low (Nobody Has to Know).” The Notorious B.I.G. even comes along for the ride on “(You To Be) Be Happy.” Turn it up. This is the sound of a man evolving into greatness.
