Chris Brown continues to grind on the comeback trail, today serving up the video for ‘Holla At Me‘, featuring Young Money star Tyga. The song is lifted from the pair’s new collaborative mixtape ‘Fan of a Fan’. Check out the Alex Nazari directed clip above…
As much as we appreciate Chris’ talent, that was trash. Needless to say, rapping certainly ain’t his forte.
What’s more, I’m not quite sure why he’s pushing these mixtapes as of late either. I mean there are more worthwhile ways to keep his name out there (as an R&B/Pop artist).
On a more positive note, we have received reliable word that Chris is currently working on the follow-up to his last studio album ‘Graffiti’, with a ‘late 2010′ release window currently pencilled-in. What would you like to see Chris do with this next album?
A few days ago fan-recorded footage of Chris Brown’s performance on BET’s ‘Spring Bling’ surfaced on the web. However, now that the event has aired, high quality video of the show has been made available. Check out Brown’s medley of ‘I Can Transform Ya’, ‘Drop It Low’ and ‘Back To The Crib’ below:
Check out some fan footage of Chris Brown performing ‘I Can Transform Ya’ on BET’s Spring Bling concert. The event was taped at Riviera Beach in Florida and will air on April 16th. The clip can be seen below:
Chris Brown was spotted at the Los Angeles Lakers vs the Utah Jazz basketball game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last evening. The singer was in the company of Young Money rapper Tyga and producer Polow Da Don. Check out more images below:
Continuing his re-emergence into the public eye, Chris Brown was spotted at the LA Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves basketball gameat the Staples Center in Los Angeles yesterday. The 20 year old R&B star was seen chatting it up with Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes at the game too.
After a tumultuous 2009, it appears things are finally on the up for Chris Brown. Following the announcement that the R&B star will be taking his ‘Fan Appreciation Tour’ around the globe, BET have confirmed that the 20 year old star will be headlining their forthcoming ‘Spring Bling’ extravaganza on April 10th.
Brown phoned in to the network’s flagship show, 106 & Park, yesterday to elaborate on his appearance – his first ‘proper’ televised set since…you know what. Check it out below…
Singer Chris Brown stopped by Sisulu-Walker Charter School of Harlem in New York earlier this week. The 20 year old star was at the school to read the book ‘Superhero School’ to third grade students. Writing on his new Twitter page, Brown said:
The school was a great experience… the kids were great. I had a great time promoting the importance of literacy
A good deed? A ploy to improve his public image? Or both? Regardless, it’s great to see this young talent pressing on, living life, and illuminating a great cause. More power to him…
Despite releasing a solid body of work with his last LP ‘Graffiti’, it appears Chris Brown still can’t shake the negative consequences of ‘the incident’. Indeed the lack of radio play, and declining requests for appearances, have seen the 20 year old take to his Say Now page to plead with his fans to request his records. You can listen to the message below:
Granted I may catch some flack for this; I really think it time folk just moved on. While I understand and accept that Chris’ actions were deplorable, he has a) taken responsibility for his wrongs and b) been punished for them by law and c) will forever have to live with the guilt of what he did and the dent it put in his career. Hence, why any entity (radio, TV etc) should feel it necessary to stage-manage the level of Chris’ potential success, is completely beyond me.
Important to note is the fact that I feel that he should have been kept out of the public eye significantly longer than he was. What’s more, the tit-for-tat promotional strategy he and Rihanna were both using around their respective release dates was (retrospectively) appalling. That said, if Ms. Fenty has forgiven and pressed on with her life…why can’t everyone else?
