You may not be familiar with Sleepy Brown or his music, but that’s about to change.

Known mostly as a background voice for blockbuster artists like Jay-Z and Outkast, Sleepy Brown has secured himself with his debut album, Mr. Brown.

Sleepy unleashes some unique tunes with semi-clever lyrics and a sexy voice.

It’s no surprise parallels can be drawn between tracks like “Margarita” and various Outkast hits since Antwan “Big Boi” Patton is the executive producer. Tracks like “One of Dem Nights” and “Get 2 It” sound like a modern-day Marvin Gaye.

On Mr. Brown, Sleepy is smooth and seductive, the perfect album to throw on while trying to impress your new man or woman.

Although Sleepy Brown hasn’t carved himself out as one of the quintessential rappers of the 21st century, his background as a guest star with the likes of Beyoncé, Ludacris and Jay-Z has set him on a path to success.
