After meticulously releasing new music and booking shows, [artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist] is planning another comeback with his forthcoming album, F.A.M.E. According to a label press release, it appears the 21-year-old singer’s new project finally has a release date: March 22.
Even with his ongoing mixtape success, Breezy has been working on F.A.M.E. for quite some time. Back in September, the “Deuces” singer first revealed the title for the set and his plan to bring a focus to his art by releasing a string of singles.
“I’m putting out singles a lot right now, so everything’s coming together. But I definitely am gonna to say this and plug it quick:
The name of my album is F.A.M.E. , so make sure you check it out,” Brown said in a radio interview. “I’m trying to get everything together, figure out what I’m [going to] do with the album.”
Since then, Brown has kept his word by catering to both his pop and urban audiences with dual singles. His high-energy dance tune “Yeah 3X” is currently in the Top five on the Mainstream Top 40 and Rhythmic radio airplay charts and has sold nearly a million combined digital/mobile sales to date. Bringing in the new year, the singer also released his Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes-assisted urban tune “Look at Me Now.” An active Twitter user, Brown has mentioned that he hopes to turn the album into a double disc.
In a recent interview with target="_blank">Access Hollywood, Tom Carrabba, executive vice president and general manager of the singer’s label (Jive), spoke about Brown reverting the focus back to his professional endeavors.
“We feel good now that everybody’s talking about his music, which is exactly what Chris’ intention is,” he said. “I think when he was a little bit younger, he was still trying to find his way a little bit and fine-tune his craft, but I think over the last two years he’s absolutely developed a confidence and is very secure in his decision-making process.”
Besides his recent Twitter feud with former B2K singer Raz-B , all seems to be going smoothly for Brown. On February 13, the R&B star will let his music do the talking at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards as he competes in three categories: Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals (“Take My Time” with Tank), Best Contemporary R&B Album (“Graffiti”) and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“Deuces” with Tyga and Kevin McCall).
