Chris Brown 

Chris Brown 

Christopher Maurice Brown was born in Tappahannock, Virginia, on May 5, 1989. His interest and education in music began, like many pop singers, through his involvement in his church choir. During his teenage years, his golden-boy sensibilities waned and his interest in the emerging R&B scene in the US took hold.

What makes Chris Brown’s music notable is his wide depth of talent. To some, he is a pop music legend, with upbeat tunes and energetic lyrics that make you want to dance. To others, he is an R&B legend, showcasing the soul and heart of his earliest musical influences. He also is known for his slow crooner style of music, which is showcased in songs like “Take You Down” and “Autumn Leaves.” In these songs, Brown demonstrates his ability to convey deep emotions through the slow use of melody and artfully seductive vocals.

Brown is most renowned for his incredible talent as a rapper. “Look at Me Now,” “Run It!,” and “Go Crazy” all showcase his knack for spitting out lines at wild speeds.

After moving to New York City, Brown was soon scouted by A&R executive Tina Davis and subsequently signed his first record deal with Jive Records, whose alumni include pop singers Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, in 2004. His debut self-titled album, released the following year, reached No. 2 on the US Billboard charts and was soon certified double platinum.

The following years were nothing but a string of successes for Brown as he further dominated the charts with pop singles such as “Beautiful People,” “I Can Transform Ya,” and “Yeah x3.” To date, Chris Brown has released a total of twelve albums, with numerous albums winning notable awards.

Other notable albums from Chris Brown include Fortune X; Fan of a Fan: The Album; Royalty; Heartbreak on a Full Moon; Indigo; Slime & B; and his latest release Breezy.
