Where this generic R&B crooner won over middle-school shorties with 2003’s breakup hit ”Don’t Wanna Try,” the marginal growth of his sophomore album — The One — shows he’s now shooting for 10th-graders. And writing like ‘em, too. On ”How to Deal,” Frankie’s blatant rip-off of Usher’s ”Burn,” he reveals painfully shallow skills: ”Ho’s come along with luxury…this is the life that I was given.” Dude, you’re 26. Get your songwriting GED already.
