We gave it a B+

After a string of false starts and scrapped singles, All of Me is ready to go global. Seriously: The U.K. singer’s latest begins with shout-outs to Paris, Beijing, and ”wherever you came from.” But touristy boasting doesn’t quite suit her (”American Boy” was more about the boy than his borders, after all). Fortunately, what follows does: feel-good soul-pop, melodic grrrl-power rhymes, and lush love songs that make even gruff guest Rick Ross sound like a romantic. B+
