Chris Brown is sharing his Fortune with his fans. Breezy has revealed the singles from his upcoming fifth album.

The R&B singer took to Twitter to announce that Tha Bizness-produced “Strip” and The Runners-produced “Biggest Fan” will serve as the lead singles from Fortune. “STRIP is one of the singles off of FORTUNE so request at RADIO!” he said of the Kevin McCall-assisted track, which appears on his latest mixtape Boy in Detention. “I’m also really excited about the release of my single titled ‘BIGGEST FAN’ produced by the RUNNERS!”

The songs are currently being mixed and will likely arrive later this year, with the album to follow in 2012. Meanwhile, he is still promoting his F.A.M.E. single “Wet the Bed” featuring Ludacris.

His friend and frequent collaborator Kevin McCall said the new album is basically done. “The Fortune album is really done. Chris Brown has four albums done if he wants to,” he told Rap-Up TV. “But the album’s done and it’s great. I like it better than F.A.M.E. personally.”

Earlier this week, Chris Brown dazzled Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris with a showing of his ‘FAME Tour‘ in The Staples Centre, Los Angeles.

Last night, he did the same for attendees of the concert at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Concord, California, stimulating their senses with performances of some of his oft celebrated music, which included ‘Run It!’ and ‘She Ain’t You’.

Watch Mr ‘Cinderella‘ in action below…

Electrifying indeed.

While many continue to equate his more recent controversies with his talent and ability as an artist, a performance like this can only serve to cement Brown’s status as one Pop’s more gifted contributors.

Job well done!

As one many of the performers who cite Michael Jackson as inspiration, last night must have been a very special evening for Chris Brown.

For, Paris Jackson, Michael’s only daughter, showed up at the concert to show her support for the young entertainer in Los Angeles and then spent time with Brown backstage soon after the show ended.

Seemingly a fan of the ‘She Ain’t You‘ maestro’s work, her appearance at the performance comes just days after her aunt LaToya spoke to That Grape Juice about her brother’s fame and legacy.

Chris Brown Barred From UK, Black Eyed Peas Pull Out Of Jackson Tribute

Though plagued with a number of growing unfavorable headlines, anticipation for tomorrow’s Michael Jackson Forever tribute is still mounting. And while fans ready themselves for the Jamie Foxx-hosted extravaganza featuring performances from the likes of Christina Aguilera, Ne-Yo, Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, and more, news has surfaced two formerly expected A-list guests won’t be in attendance – Chris Brown and Black Eyed Peas.

Much like Michaels’s pop superstar sibling Janet Jackson, their absences are not being received well by fans and critics of the show. Unlike Miss Jackson, their reasons – in Chris Brown’s case, especially – weren’t exactly voluntary.

Chris Brown, whose criminal record include domestic violence charges due to the 2009 assault of pop starlet/then-girlfriend Rihanna, was consequently denied VISA grant and was thusly barred from the United Kingdom. While rumors swirled that the ‘She Ain’t You’ singer would perform via pre-taped performance like fellow pop star Beyonce, those rumors have seen been silenced with insiders reporting the family didn’t want to put a ‘negative slant on the day’.

Black Eyed Peas, on the other hand, found themselves removed just days before the concert is to take place. Chris Hunt, head of Global Live Events (the sponsoring promoter) is quoted saying (via New York Times):

“Due to unavoidable circumstances, the Black Eyed Peas will be unable to perform at this Saturday’s Michael Forever event,” he told Reuters.

“It is with regret that we announce the removal of Black Eyed Peas from the Michael Forever bill, but I look forward to a great night with other earth-shattering artists,” he said.

This would be the second time Chris Brown was unfortunately unable to tribute his idol. As we all know and was proven via the 2010 BET Awards, there is no better fitting tribute performer than Brown who has not only praised Michael his entire career, but also has proven (time after time) to be his best emulator.

Given the number of setbacks and oppositions to the showing, from fans and Jackson family members alike, the outcome of the ceremony will certainly be one to see
