After listening to this album for 6 days now, I realized that maybe I should do a review on it. CHRIS BROWN CAN DO NO WRONG, MUSICALLY! You can say whatever you want about him but one thing you can’t say is he isn’t talented. This man is talented beyond means, from acting, to singing, rapping, dancing AND fashion designer.
Even though the media has caught some of his bad moments, he’s had more good than bad; for instance, from the time he stepped on the music scene in 2005, he’s been nominated for over 200 awards and won 89 awards, including 1 Grammy for his F.A.M.E. album, which happened AFTER the Rihanna incident, that seems to never die down.
Chris has had 87 songs charted on the Billboards, 13 of those were top 10 hits and 2 of them were number 1 hit. He has released EIGHT albums in his 12-year career. Let’s just give this man credit because it’s definitely due.
Now, let’s talk about this album…GREATNESS!! I can’t think of an artist who produced 45 songs on ONE album! He sampled Roger, an 80’s artist in his song “Juicy Booty.” His two songs “Questions” and “Hope You Do” are interpolations of Kevin Little’s “Turn Me On” and Donnell Jones “Where I Wanna Be.” Other interpolates are “To My Bed” referencing to “Nice & Slow” by Usher, and “Even” which is a sample of Michael’s Jackson “Remember The Time.” This Album has some familiarity within that’ll make you want to keep listening. It has some top 100 hits for the variety radio stations and of course your normal R&B tunes from Chris.
So, before you criticize him for all his wrongdoing, look at his accomplishments. I’m not saying let his accomplishments make you forget about all the wrong he’s done BUT there are more pros than cons to him music and personal life.
ALBUM RATING: solid 5 ✨✨✨✨✨
