Posted in F.A.M.E., Thatgrapejuice.net with tags , on August 10, 2011 by breezyworld2

It’s been a year characterised by chart success for comeback kid Chris Brown. As such, the 22 year old caps it off with a sprawling North American trek billed the ‘F.A.M.E Tour’.

Named after his hit album of the same name, Brown’s jaunt kicks off next month with R&B diva Kelly Rowland featuring as a special guest.

Chris Brown had a a very busy day in New York City yesterday. However, the ‘Beautiful People’ singer took a break from the promo trail for his ‘F.A.M.E’ LP to play basketball with friends in Manhattan before celebrating the debut of the album alongside Bow Wow, Kevin McCall and others at a launch party for the disc at Webster Hall.

Album Review: Chris Brown -F.A.M.E.

Fame. It is earned by people for either remarkable achievement or scandalous behaviour. However, for Chris Brown it occurs as a result of both.

Whether being praised for his brilliant live performances or scolded for his notorious actions, Brown has been the focus of media attention since his debut. However, the entertainer has managed to channel these pressures into a body of work that may very well be his album to date.

Aptly entitled ‘F.A.M.E’, the 13-track LP demonstrates the versatility of an artist who, regardless of the tabloid headlines, has both the talent and passion to become a lasting figure in the music industry.

Experimenting with an array of sounds, Brown gives listeners the opportunity to hear the full extent of his artistry on ‘F.A.M.E’. On songs such as the club-thumping Pop single, ‘Yeah 3x’, and its infectious followup, ‘Beautiful People (Ft. Benny Benassi)’, he ventures further into the genre of Dance/Pop; a seemingly natural progression for a performer who scored a massive hit with ‘Forever’ from his ‘Exclusive’ album in 2008.

Yet, unlike most of his peers, Brown has not abandoned his Urban roots in favour of finding success on the Pop bandwagon. Instead, he provides a healthy mix of material that features several Hip-Hop and R&B tracks, most of which he co-wrote himself.

Brown flexes his rap skills alongside Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne on ‘Look At Me Now’ and while he is certainly outshone by his more experienced guests, his delivery over the Diplo-produced beat is quite impressive. Thankfully, however, Brown keeps the focus on singing for the rest of the album, hopefully giving his rhymes a break until his next mixtape.

Those hoping to hear the capabilities of Brown’s voice would enjoy songs such as ‘Up To You’, ‘No BS (Ft. Kevin McCall)’ and ‘Should’ve Kissed You’. Unfortunately, on what is possibly Brown’s best vocal showing to date, ‘All Back’ is unpleasantly diluted with studio effects that shroud his voice behind distracting distortions.

Indeed, most of the additions to this album actually weaken it instead of helping Brown’s cause, a point that also applies to his collaborators. Justin Bieber’s flat, emotionless and blatantly annoying attempts at singing almost ruins the drum-driven ‘Next To You’ which was brilliantly produced by The Messengers.

On the unexpected hit ‘Deuces’ Kevin McCall does his best impersonation of Drake but the result is as interesting as one of the songs on Lil Kim’s ‘Black Friday’. Even Ludacris sounds awkward and out of place on ‘Wet The Bed’; a far cry from the brilliance of his classic hit ‘Splash Waterfalls’. Both records truly sound as though Brown is carrying his guests across the finish line and could have only benefited with the omission of their verses.

Other stumbles on the album include the ill advised Michael Jackson sample on ‘She Ain’t You’ as well as the confusing ‘Say It With Me’ which was clearly over-produced.

Still, regardless of a few missteps, Brown delivered a solid album with ‘F.A.M.E’. As he continues to find himself as a songwriter and diversify his audience, Brown proves his true dynamism as an artist.

Once consumers manage to look pass the media propaganda, he could very well enjoy similar success to Usher’s Grammy Award-winning ‘Raymond vs Raymond’ LP. Fans may be his everything as the ‘F.A.M.E’ acronym suggests but a platinum plaque and Grammy gold would certainly be an enjoyable bonus.

Chris Brown: “I Want ‘F.A.M.E’ To Sell A Million – First Week”

Posted in Billboard, Chart new's, Chrisbrown!, F.A.M.E., Team Breezy, Thatgrapejuice.net with tags , , , , , on March 19, 2011 by breezyworld2

Chris Brown certainly has high hopes for his fourth studio album ‘F.A.M.E’. During a recent interview to promote the record, which arrives in stores next Tuesday, the singer told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez that he hopes the LP sells a million copies first week.

His comments below…

“I wouldn’t consider it jinxing myself, but I always dream big. I wouldn’t have thought when I was 15 I would be able to do this music. I would love to just solidify that, as much as ya’ll wanna keep talking about stuff, bringing stuff up, ya’ll can’t stop (me and) my music.”

“I would love to do like a mill the first week, honestly. And that’s really pushing, and I know that’s pushing, but I’m happy with anything I sell. If I sell 100,000 like last time, I’m cool. My last Graffiti album was only 100,000, but it was a lot more added to it back then,” he added referring to the media frenzy surrounding ‘the incident’ – which at that time had only happened a few months prior.

However, Brown acknowledges the present to be much more optimistic a time for him, saying “right now it’s a more comfortable position. People are accepting the music now.”

…which begs the question; how much do you think Chris will sell first week?

Review On Chris Brown F.A.M.E.(2011)

Posted in Chris Brown, Chrisbrown!, chrissupereme!, F.A.M.E., Review with tags , , on March 18, 2011 by breezyworld2

 

 

The acronym apparently stands for “Forgiving All My Enemies”, a typically self-pitying claim on the moral high ground from someone who, lest we forget, was convicted of assaulting a woman.

Isn’t forgiveness something Brown should be requesting, rather than bestowing? But that’s the topsy-turvy mindset of US R&B for you, a world characterised, on this showing, by paranoia, reproach and bogus regret, along with the standard “aspirational” bragging about money and sex. F.A.M.E. is equal parts bubblebath boudoir soul and more bullish beat-driven floor-fillers, tricked out with familiar guests like Timbaland and Justin Bieber, the most lively of which is Busta Rhymes’s babble-rap over the Clangers-style bleeps of “Look at Me Now”. As regards originality, the use of a Michael Jackson sample on “She Ain’t You” shows how hard Brown’s trying.
