All Music Guide:
Arriving on the heels of big sister/R&B star Brandy, rapper Ray J parlayed his success on television into a music career at the age of 14. Inspired by Brandy's early successes, he signed with Elektra in 1995, recording Everything You Want the following year. When he stepped back into the studio he called on the Neptunes, Rodney Jerkins, and several other hitmaking producers for This Ain't a Game, a pop-oriented record that featured more of his singing than his debut, but it wasn't the breakthrough success it was designed to be. He resurfaced with Raydiation in 2005 and All I Feel in 2008.
