We gave it a B

Braxton’s traded Diane Warren for Irv Gotti and the Neptunes, and switched from unbreaking hearts to breaking out sex toys (see track 10) on More Than A Woman. Note that two of the first four songs begin with a male rapper’s voice, and you’ll be ready to diagnose Mariah Syndrome. But if she has sudden hip-hop pretensions, it’s low-key hip-hop, the electronic throbs providing a surprisingly suitable bed for her controlled boudoir cooing.
