#9? It should be #1 I just got Syleena Johnson's new album Chapter 4: Labor Pains from iTunes and its off the chain! Support R&B's Best Kept Secret and cop that album! Remember, it is available in stores and online so get your copy today!

"Be Me" is my favorite on Syleena Johnson's Chapter 4: Labor Pains! It's so real! Also look out for “Maury Povich” it’s a hott song!
