Album Review

Chris Brown's career was trending sharply downward. The singer’s self-titled debut went double platinum. Exclusive went single platinum. 2009’s Graffiti fell well short of gold-sales status, though it was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Contemporary R&B Album: far and away the worst disc to receive the honor. Rather than vanish and position himself for a spectacle-like comeback, Brown wisely continued to release new music through 2010. The offhandedly belligerent “Deuces” hit that summer and topped the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, while Brown also appeared on numerous singles headlined by others, including Twista’s Top Ten “Make a Movie.” By the time F.A.M.E. was released in March 2011, the album’s variety of styles was already known. A total of five songs, including the slinking pop-R&B of “Deuces,” had hit various singles charts. The bleepy rap track “Look at Me Now,” where Brown displays some competence as an MC but is devoured by Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes' rapid-fire verses, was one of them. The celebratory “Yeah 3x” and the anthemic “Beautiful People,” a pair of club singles, nodded to Eurodance. And then there was the smoothly percussive “No BS,” a slow jam with chivalrous sweet nothings like “I’m-a leave it in when we do it” and “Don’t you be on that b******t.” Despite the success of some of these pre-album singles, they don’t represent the best of F.A.M.E. On the earnest ballad “Up to You,” the Michael Jackson/SWV-sampling “She Ain’t You,” and the remorseful “All Back” (written and produced by Timothy Bloom, one to watch), Brown plays to his strength as a boyish, romantic pop-R&B singer, while “Say It with Me” shows that he can handle harder grooves that are more R&B than pop. This all makes F.A.M.E. the equal of Forever, if not slightly better, and it hints that Brown’s best is yet to come.

BREEZY BACK?!

Well it seems like CB is back & i'm happy. He is a great singer...awesome voice, meaningful lyrics & he's just great. I can't say to forget about the whole drama that started with him but hey we all make mistakes & i'm not saying it's ok. I say we give him a (slight) chance. Everyone deserves a chance. He's always been good. But not really feelin' the hair. Sorry Chris. But anyways love the songs. Good job (again) & props to the sing with the Biebes. Sounds AWESOME! Like it. Love it, love it, love it :)

chris?

i love chris brown but.... something has changed about his music..... not sure if its a great change....

Amazing

This album was incredible. I don't like Chris Brown as a person, but he's an amazing artist. Definitely the album worth waiting for however I wish the were more songs similar to Look at me now. Now all he needs to do is dye his hair back.

Biography

Born: May 5, 1989 in Tappahannock, VA

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '00s, '10s

In November 2005, Chris Brown's Scott Storch-produced "Run It!" — a rewrite of Usher's "Yeah!" — topped the Billboard Hot 100, making the 16-year-old singer the first male artist in over a decade to top the chart with a debut single. While there was nowhere to go but down, at least in terms of chart positions, the pop-oriented R&B vocalist was only getting started. By the end of the decade, he was one of the biggest active pop stars, with a clutch of Top Ten singles and platinum albums...
