Grammy winning crooner Chris Brown is pulling no shortage of stops on the promo trail for his latest opus ‘Royalty.’
Courtesy of a slew of visuals to accompany some of the set’s star tracks, sales forecasts place the R&B prince atop the genre’s albums’ chart yet again for the forthcoming week. In a bid to push the numbers up from their predicted 160k perch, Brown can also be seen on the digital and print circuit dishing on the album and so much more.
One such stop that still has fans a-chatter is his visit to VIBE, as reported here. There, Breezy can be seen posing it up and lending a number of quotes set to leave fans rooting for him. Get into some of them below:
“I don’t pray for success. I pray for knowledge for understanding and peace of mind. So I just try to get a peace of mind and me understanding that being at peace with my flaws and my talents. I’m cool with that. ” – Chris Brown

On being a role model:
“It’s not my job to be your role model; my job is to be your inspiration.”
“I’m the general statistic of the young black male: a father out of wedlock, tattoos, sags my pants, hangs with people that would be called outcasts, been to jail, has a criminal record.”
On discovering Royalty was his daughter:
I had thought about it. I had saw pictures, and I was like “Damn.” So I asked, and [Royalty’s mother] was like “Nah, it’s not you.” So I was like, “Cool,” I didn’t think it was an issue. But when I found out, it was kind of like, “Damn, she looks just like me.” And I didn’t care about how me and her mother didn’t have a relationship, I didn’t care about any situation. I just wanted to see her. I just wanted to be able to have that opportunity, as something personal to me. I’m not gonna be upset, I’m not gonna be mad. I have to be honest with myself and pick the priorities over the situation. I had to make my priority my daughter.
