Chris Brown has been semi-lowkey in the media as of late, but that hasn’t stopped him from working on his music. In an interview last year with Rolling Stone he talked about what was to be expected from his new project:
I tried to stay away from the Euro beats, and not go totally pop. Instead, I wanted to take the Quincy Jones approach. The record pays homage to the Stevie Wonders, the Michael Jacksons, the Sam Cookes. I wanted to put that classic essence of R&B and soul with the new age of music now.
The album was supposed to be released last July. With only few tracks reeled, ‘Fine China,’ ‘Don’t Think They Know,’ and ‘Love More,’ it was unclear as to when an album would be dropped. Well Chris just released a tweet (now that he’s back on social media) stating:
Who knows if this album will stick. Chris has been on tracks with a slew of people and if that’s any take on what his album will sound like then eh, it’s nothing special. Chris Brown has never been the ultimate R&B singer, but his music pops (no pun intended). I’m interested in seeing if he’s going to follow in that ‘visionary’ album plan he talked about in the interview.
May 5th marks Chris’ 25th birthday and this album was said to be his last. I’m not too sure about that. Aside from that he’s in the studio working on Fan of a Fan 2 with Tyga. Here’s their new track, ‘B*tches’.
