It’s that time for @ChrisBrown. After all that he’s been through in the past two years, Chris Brown is finally back on top. At one point in time, radio stations wouldn’t even play songs from past albums. But Breezy has definitely gotten over all that. Since the success of his Fan Of A Fan mixtape with Tyga & the release of his comeback album, Graffiti, I believe it’s safe to say that Chris Brown is doing better than before.
F.A.M.E has been in the works for a long time and now is the time for the world to experience it. All of the recent hits are featured including Look At Me Now and Deuces. Though there are a couple tracks that I found a little creative and out of the box. The main one that I’m feelin’ at the moment would have to be Beautiful People. Like several artists in the game right now, Chris linked up with techno producer Benny Benassi to create this track. It’s definitely a different sound from his normal hip hop and R&B beats but overall it’s a good song. Its originality stands out more than anything in my book.
Another aspect of the album that I’d like to highlight is: the flow. That’s right, I’m sure everyone has noticed that this isn’t the same young, R&B singer that busted out in ’05. Chris has switched up his old R&B sound into a faster and fresher flow that is unlike the others out there. His style and delivery has become a lot more concrete with this album.
However, Chris was not alone on this album. This time around several big names hopped on the album including Tyga, Kevin McCall, Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne, Ludacris, The Game, Big Sean, Timbaland, Wiz Khalifa… and yes, even Justin Bieber. Damn what a line up.
It’s clear to see that Chris Brown is back in the biz and killin’ it with everything he’s doing. And with his movie career blowin’ up slowly but surely, this guy ain’t going anywhere anytime soon. There’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing more of his work in the near future. But in the meantime, pick up his new F.A.M.E album. Trust me, it’s worth it.
