Release and receptionEdit
"What I Need" earned generally positive reviews by critics. Billboard magazine felt that the song "should be enough to momentum. Here, Ray J's vocals once again seem strained as he cops another plea to the woman he has done wrong. Despite its sap factor, "What I Need" will likely lap up radio play."
