Album Review – Chris Brown “F.A.M.E.”
F.A.M.E. is the fourth studio album by the Breezy. Working with a variety of writers and producers, Brown continues to blur the lines between soul, hip hop, pop and dance music. Brown co-wrote the majority of “F.A.M.E.”, and collaborated with a wide range of artists including Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Ludacris, Justin Bieber and others. As for the album, Brown comes out firing in an attempt to put his past behind him. He doesn’t hide any bitterness as he opens the new album with “Deuces,” a send off that sweeps aside an ex (Rihanna) as “nothing but a vulture.” The bar was set high for F.A.M.E. after all that went down, but with singles like “Deuces,” “Yeah 3x” and “Look At Me Now”, Breezy shows that he’s still got it! The album thrives because there are songs from all genres: from street records, to real soul music, to 808’s that you’ll hear in the club, and then others that are strictly for the heart. Breezy is not where he use to be, but he’s on the right track. With a couple more albums like this, Chris Brown will solidify his spot in R&B history!
