Chris Brown’s ‘Graffiti’ Deluxe Edition Cover And Tracklisting

Published: Sunday 8th Nov 2009 by Trent

R&B star Chris Brown has released the cover art (as seen above) for the 2-disc Deluxe Edition of his highly anticipated 3rd studio album, ‘Graffiti’. The first single from the project, ‘I Can Transform Ya’ (featuring the pervasive Lil Wayne), has thus far peaked at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #16 on the Hip-Hop/R&B charts. The album is slated for released on December 8th, which also happens to be the scheduled release date of Usher’s new album, tentatively entitled ‘Raymond vs. Raymond’. Below is the official track listing of ‘Graffiti’:

1. I Can Transform Ya featuring Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz

2. Sing Like Me

3. Crawl

4. So Cold

5. What I Do featuring Plies

6. Famous Girl

7. Take My Time featuring Tank

8. I.Y.A.

9. Pass Out featuring Eva Simons

10. Wait Featuring Trey Songz & Game

11. Lucky Me

12. Fallin Down

13. I’ll Go

The artwork is basically the same with very little dissimilarity from the original other than the gold  tint. It baffles me that most people dislike the cover. Is the fact that he is wearing spandex more important than the concept of the design?

Regarding the track listing, I must admit that I am excited to hear all of the material. If ‘I Can Transform Ya’ and ‘Crawl’ are any indication of what the album will sound like, then I sense this is going to be his most musically, lyrically and vocally sound production to date. My only concern is that he is going to be singing a song – ‘Take My Time’ – with Tank. No offense to Chris but I bet it was difficult for Tank to retrain his vocals in an effort not to out-sing Breezy on his own track. Either way, I expect great things from this album.

Tidbit: Is it just me or has everyone forgotten that Usher is even releasing a record this year?

Thoughts?

    Usher has been pushed back until 2010

    The cover is screaming “Space Jam 2009” to me. But I guess it’s better than having grafitti literally sprayed on the cover. I think the album will be good as long as the music shows some growth and maturity.

    Usher’s album has been pushed back to 2010 and I guess that’s why, no one’s checking for him but his song ‘papers’ is doing well on the airplay charts but falling on Itunes.

    Chris, I hope he does well. I actually like ‘Cold’ better than ‘Crawl’ and I like all of his songs better than all of Rhianna’s new songs.

    well Usher messing up BIGtime, I mean, he has to come hard-LIKE KLUB BANGER HARD (YEAH 3010 style!), otherwise, his time is up..I LOVE HIM! BUT I think all stars have their moments, and it just fades after awhile-Justin (although i dont care for), is a smart guy, hi killed it, and stopped, I doubt he will come back, Usher may need to take points…NOW ON CHRIS BROWN! (I love love love his 1st album to pieces), 2, was OK/this 1, i just aint feelin it so far…..& this cover ?!?! I mean really ?!!? what are the martians representin? graffiti was the style of artwork for the 1st album, so I guess he tried to be different, but its kinda gay & I am gay, so I can say this, those pants honey, I WOULDNT EVEN WEAR!! child………..the hand thing is kool, but lets b real (Beyonce did all that with the sasha hand thing), even Ciara had the robo thing goin on….b different, not chessy…

    “Usher’s album has been pushed back to 2010 and I guess that’s why, no one’s checking for him but his song ‘papers’ is doing well on the airplay charts but falling on Itunes.”

    -first of all Papers was a buzzing single. Jive hasnt planned to realease it but they got good feedbacks from the public so they decided to release it just to making money

    -LOL Jive has neva neva said that Usher’s album was due to 8th december
    actually it was R****.com but they removed the news a few hours later!

    -Hint: Did you see Usher promoting papers?Did you see Usher talking about Papers somewhere? Can you name me many superstar who picked at 30 in Hot 100 and 4 in Rnb cHARTS Without any promotion.
    Kids stiill love usher that why they keep on buying his divorce anthem even with any promotion.

    -Brown promotes hard ICTY (Mtv interview Concert tour )and he only peaks at 24 after 1 month…
    C’mon guys dont lie to yourself

    Thatgrapejuice is still one of the best blogs even though some persons are kinda insane in the comments section lol

  8. MC November 8, 2009

    “Is it just me or has everyone forgotten that Usher is even releasing a record this year?”

    lol did you see Usher promotes his album somewhere?
    If you have:You have to post it I’m a big fan of him

    But the last time I talk to my friend who is producer Ive heard that his album was due to 2010…
    I dont even has seen a statement from Jive who said that his album will be out in december
    but maybe Am I wrong lol
    bloggers knows better than producers….just sayin”

  9. MC November 8, 2009

    and I still cant understand why you guys are acting like being number 24 after 1 month of promotion is good!
    its bad! very bad!

    ive got some breaking news for this blog:
    Chris Brown will break his probation early next year and he will go to jail
    shout out to jay z for more information

    the same persons who are praisng Breezy now will put him on blast in few months

  10. Ankka November 8, 2009

    even if the music is good , the artwork still looks cheap! i can’t see any artistry there!
    it makes no sense 2 me….

  11. AWOLLUVA November 8, 2009

    Yes Trent, THE FACT THAT THIS N**** IS WEARING SPANDEX IS INDEED MORE IMPORTANT THE THE CONCEPT OF THE COVER!!! Lol, in fact, what IS the concept? I still have no idea. I guess I could come up with my own concept for the cover in my head, but I’m still trying to get past everything from the waist down…

    As far as chart positions are concerned, people aren’t really expecting ICTY to break the top 10 on the Hot 100, are they? I’d be shocked if that happens so it’s not surprise the song is at #24. I can see Crawl performing better though. As far as Usher is concerned, he better wait until the Graffiti era is near finished before he releases a new album, because there’s no way he’s competing with CB at this point in time.

  12. shedaman November 8, 2009

    has anybody noticed this album is gonna cater more to his black fan b/c white people dnt want anything to do w/ him? chris is done. rihanna buried him alive w/ that interview.

  13. whatever November 8, 2009

    i liked the first one better..hate the gold moon at the back…anyways ITCY peaking at number 24 IS NOT BAD..this is a guy who was written off by the media this year and for him to come in and be in the top 50..that is amazing….this is a dude who still does not have his music being on rotation 247 due to what happened and he is still can break the top 30 and that is not great??? ..GTFOHHHHHHHHHHHH…haters can wish he will fail or violate his probation but please, keep on dreaming…it think you must be worried about rihanna the lying b****…RR and her album actually fell down the charts after she lied through her teeth in that interview…

    chris will be fine..he got us fans who got his back…his cd will go to number 1 and we will make sure of it…

    ps, onto the tracklist..i am really excited about his collabo with eva simons..that should be interesting..cant wait..i hope it helps her blow up..kinda liked silly boy..rihanna must have known about the collabo coz she went and stole her look for one of her promo pics..not only is she a LIAR but THIEF…smh

  15. Malyeh November 8, 2009

    I think the cover is just AMAZING ! I’m no fan though.
    I like the deluxe version better with the gold moon.
    I like his “robotic hands”.
    And what’s the problem with the spandex ?! It’s look different than BIG pants…
    I mean look at the “classic” R&B male covers…. x____x *boring*

  16. Anon November 9, 2009

    Sam – it’s not the pants that are the problem, it is everything! The fake guitar on his back, the graffiti spray that looks like a martini shaker, and the little cartoon monsters that look absolutely ridiculous. It’s just a terrible cover.
