New Song: Chris Brown – ‘Turn Up The Music’ (New Single)

Published: Thursday 26th Jan 2012 by Sam

With the release of Chris Brown‘s ‘Fortune’ fast approaching, the singer has unwrapped the set’s second single ‘Turn Up The Music’.

Brown made the impromtu announcement on Twitter moments ago, telling fans:

“New FORTUNE single coming 1/26!!!”Chris tweeted. “”TURN UP THE MUSIC”!!!!”

Well the moment has arrived! What are you waiting for?! Take a listen after the jump…

Ding, ding, ding!

A delicious slice of Electro-Pop, with a generous helping of Urban, the track is a winner on many a front. From its seamless fusing of the genres, to its whimsical “knock”, The Underdogs cut is a certified club banger.

Yet, beyond this, the song is also the first Brown release in some time to see the star really showcase them vocals. Indeed, his adlibs, belts, and harmonies pierce through the studio bells and whistles, reminding the masses that Chris can be a great vocalist – when he wants to be.

We smell a hit!

  10. ellis January 26, 2012

    this song smashed me allover,gives unneccesary excitements. wild life

  11. TC January 26, 2012

    I love it! It sounds like a harder version of Cassie’s Gimme That!

  12. number1k9 January 26, 2012

    Horrible lead single (followup single if “Strip” counts…) from a first listen. Song is EVERYWHERE and NOT in a good way!

    Based off a first listen, a track like this should only be solicited to the Clubs!


  13. Britney January 26, 2012

    Sounds like Britney Spears – Till The World Ends!!

    She does Dubstep in her last album and he does it on this one too!
    now he’s copying one of her songs?!
    how unoriginal

  14. MISHKA January 26, 2012

    Thanks for nothing, Sam. It won’t hurt you to give credit to a commenter, you know…

  15. JDE97 January 26, 2012

    Wack. I find it offputting and frankly embarrassing when Black artists do “electropop.”

  16. Marvin January 26, 2012

    Hmm…. It’s ok. I can see it doing well. But I’m tired of all this pop music from everyone. His R&B music is so much better.

  17. Theman January 26, 2012

    This sounds like David Guetta’s song “Turn Me Up” or “Turn Me On”, and it also sounds like a “LMFAO” song. It’s very very safe and typical. Alot of folks have moved away from the electro dance stuff. He should release another single, although this will probably be a hit. Great vocals, i don’t know about that. Better though.

  18. trisha24 January 26, 2012

    I love it. Can’t stop listening to it

  19. mt January 26, 2012

    its greateeeeeeeeeeeeee breezyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  20. mt January 26, 2012

    its greateeeeeeeeeeeeee breezyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyzyyyyy

  21. Kingphoenix January 26, 2012

    Death @ every one doing dance pop, its like disco all over again but worse….the aftermath of this bull will be hilarious.

  22. Kelis January 26, 2012


  23. UnMutedOne January 26, 2012

    No thanks to that. Sound like white gay club music to me.

  24. junior seven January 26, 2012


    i m tired of this electro s***!


  25. CBE January 26, 2012

    This a great track!!! people trying to hate LOL! I love how real fans dont give a s*** coz chris talented and probably one of the first artists to mix Rnb,Pop,Rap, PopRock,Electro in one album! How many artist today have those kind of albums?

  26. Woah woa woa woa woa January 26, 2012

    Cant wait for fortune!

    2012 we better take over this b****!

  27. Bratt January 26, 2012

    Is it me or does the chorus remind me of Till The World Ends (Britney Spears)?

  28. zania January 26, 2012

    All these haters on here, this song is sick, I love this song. This is great club banger. When I went out on New Years Eve, all they played was Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Rap music and by the way I am black. CB is smart, this is what is hot, and his song Yeah 3x actually did better on the 100 chart and downloads than She aint you and I love both songs equally, so what is that telling you. We are in the era of Pop and Dance music. I know CB will mix up a little on his album , he will have all genres on his album, probably he will have more R & B and Rap coll on this album and maybe 3 Pop songs.

  29. kingbreezy January 26, 2012

    KING breezy coming back to slay once again be on look he makes all kind of music so stop complaining the most amazing thing is that whatever he puts out is AMAZING

  30. TeamBreezy January 26, 2012

    All you people need to stop hating, i bet you still jammin’ out to this song right now, #TeamBreezy all the way

  31. ♛ pop royalty ♛ ( iMusic ) January 26, 2012

    of course this gonna be a Guaranteed #1 banger and the perfect lead single for him. Loved it !! release it CB !

    and basic b****** said electro-pop/dance music gonna die …

    HA !

    the mission now is to download this song till he release this album , gonna find me a link cuz it is that good TBH. OMG !!!

    i’m @pop royalty , and this is a WINNER ! end of …..

  32. Queenof Pop January 26, 2012

    This just proves Britney Spears’ influence on EVERYONE, being the Queen of Pop that she is! Awesome song tbh…haters remained pressed!

  33. Yesss January 26, 2012

    Sounds like Yeah 3X!!!!! But i love Chris B. This isnt a Strong 1st Single though!

  34. justme January 26, 2012

    is it me or does it sound like the same technique they used for rihannas where have u been.. song is good but it practically is the same song

  35. ♛ pop royalty ♛ ( iMusic ) January 26, 2012

    from 2:35 to 2:50 ! u can def hear the beat of BEYONCE’S ” run the world /girls” in the background.

    this proves that this beat is EVERYTHING.

    AND LOOKS like only CB understand his mission. other R&B artists take NOTES ( kelly rowland , etc … “

  36. cray January 26, 2012

    At least one thing is sure whether i like the song or not..when the video comes out CB will slay the dance floor!!!…if you are going to do dance music, well….dance…and that my friend is what CB does

  37. ♛ pop royalty ♛ ( iMusic ) January 26, 2012

    britney has nothing to do with anything.

    she was never a trendsetter , she always follow ! even her 2011’s ” i wanna go” sound like 2005’s ” hung up” by madonna. 😡

    MEH !

  38. slayfanistann. January 26, 2012

    I heard this earlier……it’s pretty good.

  39. gaaglooo! January 26, 2012

    Wooow haters stop it!! This is a good song, not strong, but very good!!!!

  40. The G-List Society January 26, 2012

    That song is trash…It would be good if all that electronica mess was omitted out of the production. This cannot be a single. It just cannot.

  41. tyra January 26, 2012


  42. sandi January 26, 2012

    WOW! My boyfriend DJ in a big club here in NY. My boyfriend said that the sound effects are on point. He is going after that song ASAP

    Sony is no joke. Someone tried to put leaked songs from Fortune on line and it was snached down right away. So far there has been no leaked songs from Fortune.

  44. Wil January 26, 2012

    So as you said @Pop Royalty we shall download this song from itunes & request at radio stations until the album comes out.

  45. ♛ pop royalty ♛ ( iMusic ) January 26, 2012

    @wil :

    so did u find any link ” ITunes” ?!

    cuz i just don’t like this Tagged version and i want this song so bad. and i do NOT support LEAKS !!

    he ” and his label” should release the single NOW in iTUNES ” Us or UK iTunes store to be specific” .

    with “turn me on” being #1 in ITunes , i think this one gonna be a #1 in matter of minutes …

  46. ♛ pop royalty ♛ ( iMusic ) January 26, 2012

    so what was the 1st single ?! 😯

    and this single + ” I CAN ONLY IMAGINE” = CHARTS domination for CB.

    hope his team get this message from me … the time is NOW !

  47. NATALIE January 26, 2012

    Sorry I love Chris but this sounds so messy and bad. It sounds distorted and some parts sound bad. I can’t wait for Fortune.

  48. aisha aguilera keys January 26, 2012

    I prefer Strip

  49. Minajesty January 26, 2012

    hes even more #1-hungry than rihanna and katy perry combined. this is s***, i liked his 2nd cd but i cannot respect a man who beat up a woman.

  50. VA STAND UP!! January 26, 2012

    I like it, not my favorite but I hear it’s appeal. It reminds me of ‘Yeah 3x’ but much better. I definitely think that it will be a hit. People can’t stop talking about it & it’s been a TT since he premiered it. I personally like ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ better and I think it would slay as a single but oh we’ll, this will have to suffice. I am a fan & will support it.

    Please cut it with the ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ b******* with the electro/pop! Chris did this sound with ‘Forever’ back in 2008 and it was his BIGGEST WW hit! He has BEEN making music like this since his SECOND album & he was AHEAD of the curent trend cause it really took off in 2010.
    Chris excells at doing music like this because unlike a lot of these other fools, CB can really take it to the next level with his videos & performances where most of these other artist are lacking! If Chris chooses the right dance/pop records he can own this lane.

    For the idiot bitching about how he needs to make r&b music, his first single was a r&b record dumbass! He has given us FOUR mixtapes that were r&b, even on BID he still had r&b songs. Some of y’all b**** entirely too much!

    she was never a trendsetter , she always follow ! even her 2011′s ” i wanna go” sound like 2005′s ” hung up” by madonna.

    MEH !


    Wow! It’s so weird to see you going so hard for Breezy! You must REALLY not be Rih Navy anymore?! You just did a complete 180. You shade Rih constantly & now big Breezy?! No shade, but that’s kinda fickle of you. What happened to make you change?

    Anywho, I agree about the Britney comment. It’s soo annoying to see people give her wack ass any credit. I’m sooo not a fan of Madonna but I gotta admit she was a trendsetter, NOT Britney. But even Madonna is following trends now. I.E working with Nicki Garbage & LMFAO. I guess even legends follow trends now a days.

    Even though I don’t think EITHER of them can be given credit for this sound.

  52. NikkNac January 26, 2012

    Its a mixture of Usher “DJ Got Us Fallin In Love” and Rihanna “Please Dont Stop The Music” #Dope

  53. kody3x January 26, 2012

    thats what im talking about baby another hit for king breezy

  54. Pucci January 26, 2012

    I will admit that I am tired of the electro pop stuff, but for some reason I like this.

  55. True Cb fan January 26, 2012

    I love this! I’ve been gone for awhile but now I’m back! I can’t wait for the new album.

  56. what up January 26, 2012

    it’s a good pop song… i hope he releases a BETTER R&B song for R&B/hiphop radio……. at least he knows his fanbase unlike some of these other artists…………. good luck to Breezy.

  57. iSlay January 26, 2012

    The chorus + instrumental break is everything but the rest is just basic and generic as hell.
    ‘Beautiful People’ and even ‘Yeah 3x’ are great and this is certainly below both of them.
    And tbh, I don’t think he does R&B (particularly midtempo/ballad types) very well…
    Much prefer him in Urban/Pop settings.

  58. Jordan January 26, 2012


  59. mobwife January 26, 2012

    I like it! It’s in the trend of the new dance music that everyone is doing! I know Chris so this is one of many great dance tracks he will have on his forthcoming CD!! I can’t wait to cope FORTUNE March 2012.

    As for the fools out there, they had the same reaction to Yeah 3X so screw the haters!! I can see him dancing his behind off in the video! Get it Chrisopher!! Mwah….haters fall back!!

  60. JER January 26, 2012

    Ummmm so it’s ok for Chris Brown to make electronic pop dance music, but no other black artists are allowed to without being criticized. I’m so sick of it, but we’ll still be here calling B******* on ThatFlopJuice

  61. kayla January 26, 2012

    I was done with chris brown the day he beat Rihanna…I was really done when he started rappin…i forgot he existed when he died his hair…he gets wacker and wacker the older he gets…troubled child…fuckkin f***** literally(no offense)

  63. ♛ pop royalty ♛ ( iMusic ) January 26, 2012

    @VA stand up :

    it’s a long story. but to summarize , i direct messaged her in twitter ” she was following me and we were cool” and told her to improve with her performances , singing , etc .. , then she unfollowed and tried to drag me for saying it.

    so i’m no longer with the navy or stanning for rihanna , i like her as a person , but i don’t stan for her no more as hard as i once was ..

    and because of that , i see no wrong for liking CB , after i gave him a sec chance and seeing how great he is for handling all that s*** and staying strong. so inspirational …

    so … 🙂

    i like CB now. 🙂

  64. EJ January 26, 2012

    Sounds like white music for a white audience.

  65. kayla January 26, 2012

    @mobwife…why i gotta sit down..cus its the truth..ya boy cant rap altho he swear he can when kevin mccall write his raps and ester dean write his songs …ya boy really looks gay with that blonde in his hair but its ok wit him…but im glad ya fav got you hyped up on the 2012 version of Yeah 3x with a touch of we found love…as for me, im sittin’ back watchin’ him weep over Rihanna and play like he gotta new girlfriend altho smart people knw she a cover up…now how about you sit there and take this in while you suck that thumb..and next time watch how you come at me because i might not be so nice…*flips weave and walks away*

  66. Heh January 27, 2012

    Wack. This is embarrassing. Chris is acting like a white boy with this silly pop mess.

    Oooh OK! Damn that’s crazy! CB blocked a lot of people who criticized him about his music and stuff not to long ago! Seems like neither of our faves can take it when we critcize them! I guess they confuse it with hate. Some people just can’t take the truth. Sorry you had to experience that.

    Anywho, glad to have you as a fan!!

    @pop royalty a cb stan now or is this just a joke

  69. jamie January 27, 2012

    I just don’t like generic, dance pop songs. There’s no depth. There’s more to life than just dance. I don’t care who the artist is.

  70. A Nu Day Has Come January 27, 2012

    Flop, f****** flop!! I keep telling you b****** this is not going to fly anymore!! The music need to get back to it’s roots!! f*** this pop dance s***!!

  71. 100% True January 27, 2012


    by now u expect me to rain courses on you but if @pop royalty can change, I believe you can as well. Now sit back and watch 2012 unfold for Breezy.

    who is crying who a river now (Rih Rih cos what goes around comes back around right) & stop hating on his beautiful girlfriend=> do your research, Chris is ballin.

    wow! Been sometime since i commented on TGJ, haven’t had much time. Anyways, this song is common sense and its a mainstream hit for sure, I hope he supports it with an epic video like yeah 3x

    This is a token from an intensely pilled hit album as i have heard “i’d wait for you”, “fools for you” Open road” and many others like, Strip & don’t wake me up.

    He is working with Nas, will I am and Brandy on this album so, its definitely will showcase some great minds indeed.

    The exciting thing isn’t only his albums but his videos and life dance performances that pushes the boundaries beyond reach of other artist like RiRi, Katie, Bieber, Trey, Ne yo, Drake, Nicki and LMFAO.

    he has a list of movies coming out this year such as “think like a man” and “plant B boy” which will surely have his name in every mouth this year.

    He was nominated & won many awards last year contrary to many expectation. He was booked for nearly every award shows, festivals and concerts in the country. His FAME tour was one of the hottest last year.

    With 3 grammy nods on the way and his Europ/ UK tour still pending, Chris is really hotter than ever.

    For people still complaining about what genre he cares for 1st, remember you were worried last year but wasn’t FAME more than what you expected? why are you complaining again?

    He has a trans-atlantic audience and he needs to cater for every audience he has that includes, RnB, pOP, Hiphop, Rock, funk etc

    Chris is building an empire with CBE now, he has some business he is working on with Ron English, deeping his feet in the fashion industry as well as some directing. With K Mac, Seven & Joelle all part of CBE he can’t do no wrong

    All these at 22 years old?….haters give that boy his credit especially cos he came right back to the top of the game after many of you tried and failed to destroy his career and drag his image.

  72. mobwife January 27, 2012


    Oh my GOD you are delusional! Chris Brown writes for himself and others (see See No More by Joe Jonas; Christmas Eve by Justin Bieber; Disturbia by Rihanna, Golden Girl by Britney Spears to name a few)! Yes, he appreciates others that write music in the same vain in which he sings. Is that a problem? Kevin McCall is signed to Chris’ label CBE. They collaborate on writing, singing, rapping SO WHAT? Chris and Ester Dean collaborate on several songs, they along with Keri Hilson have been collaboratively writing music for years, again SO WHAT?

    Chris’ hair is no longer blonde but SO WHAT? He was F I N E as a blonde but I perfer his natural color! That’s my personal preference it’s his head and he is free to do with it what he chooses!

    LOL WHAT? You are watching Chris WEEP? You must be looking through the WEEPING EYES OF RIHANNA! She is the one who seems to have lost her mind now that both JAY-Z & CHRIS BROWN are no longer AVAILABLE to play with her!

    LOL you are right , if you are “flipping a WEAVE”, I just might want to watch what I type to a chick like you! *side-eye*

    Very well said!! 🙂

  74. 100% True January 28, 2012

    @MOBWIFE : many thanks

    2009, its wasn’t easy to separate the HATERS from genuinely disappointed fans. Failed or failing artist thought he was now one of them e.g Raz Berry. Usher deserted him & tried to replace him with Justin Bieber. Trey song/ Neyo though they were the new princes of RnB. The b**** traded her love for MONEY & she abundantly got paid for being the female. Media was his greatest enemy.

    2010, Die hard fans return to form TEAM BREEZY while some “on the wall fans” who couldn’t place their bet on Breezy cos they though his career was over=> joined the HATE CAMPAIGN”. Usher, Miguel, Trey, Neyo and Bieber shined Brighter than ever. But Chris transformed into a SUPER SIZE => Deuces b******!
    cancelled media & used social networks for promotion.

    2011, to the hater’s ( MEDIA &bloggers) shock of their miserable lives, BREEZY not only retuned but ARRIVED RIGHT AT THE TOP=> an envied career, most artist’s dreams. trans-atlantic 1#s & a 1#album=> in came the awards! Trey, Miguel. Neyo, in his shadows. Many fans shamelessly returned and new fans were resurrected=> TEAMBREEZY REIGNED! The b**** cried him a river. Media start making up stories cos they were dry.

    2012, More disappointment for Media! NO INTERVIEWS. Haters @pop royalty & bloggers (perez, TMZ, etc) changed sides. 85% image rehabilitation, 90% cross board acceptance of prince of RnB/ Pop status. FULL return 75%, haters 45%.

    Haterz, no one has asked you to stop hating or stalking Breezy, the truth is you’ve failed for 3 years now and we’ve been winning. your comments don’t dampen our interest in this superstar, in fact the more you attack him, the more we defend him. Hopefully more of you will change sides this year or 2013 by the time FORTUNE DROPS

  75. Jamie January 30, 2012

    @100% TRUE

    That’s right!!! Haters tried but at the end of the day, TALENT WINS.

    Honestly I believe if he had the same talent as HER, he would have never had a comeback. I hate the fact that she is NOW comenting about how she likes his ago!!!!!! OH now you realize that HE IS BLOWWING UPP!!!!!!!!EVERY DAMN ALBUM SHE PROMOTES SHE talks about him

    IM not hater, but DAMN get off his D***!!!!!!!!!!!!

  76. Jamie January 30, 2012

    I meant to say SHE LIKES HIS MUSIC, my iPhone is acting up!!
