Sean Garrett, ‘Turbo 919′ (Bet I Penned It Music/Interscope)

Mikael Wood // May 27, 2008

This Atlanta-based songwriter/producer has helped craft megahits for Usher, Beyoncé, Ciara, and Chris Brown, and on his debut album, he demonstrates that his behind-the-boards work has prepared him reasonably well for a turn in the spotlight. Unfortunately, few of Garrett’s ideas about romance have evolved past the knuckle-dragging stage, which weighs down Turbo 919’s sleek, precision-geared beats with loads of brain-dead machismo; on “Come on In” he offers one lady a lesson in lovemaking, since clearly “your man don’t fuck you right.” How generous.
