"Bust It Open"  - "Bust It Open" is basically "Pop That" part deux. Producers the Arsenals sample another portion of Luke's "I Wanna Rock" while French enrolls Lil Wayne's "beat it up" lovemaking school. French knows a successful formula when he sees one, but it seems more lazy than efficacious, especially for the last track on the album's standard edition.(photo: John Ricard / BET)

"Ain?t Worried About Nothin'" - This recent single is Exhibit A of French's preternatural ability to craft true anthems, highlighted by repetitive but unforgettable choruses that ascend to the level of catchphrase/life slogan. He won't win "Quotable of the Month," but you'll find yourself singing along to each line regardless. There's a definite Future influence in the robotic, half-sung rhymes here and throughout the album, but on this song at least, French makes the style his own.  (photo: John Ricard / BET)
