Chris Brown Drops New Single ‘Turn Up The Music’

Brown revisits electronic-dance sound for first single from Fortune.

Chris Brown is getting the club banging with “Turn Up the Music.” The first single from Brown’s upcoming album, Fortune, was released Thursday (January 26), and much like his 2010 hit “Yeah 3x,” Brown revisits an electronic-dance sound that is destined to get people in the clubs and on the dance floor.

The track, which was written and produced by the Underdogs and will be available at all digital music stores February 14, is a house-inspired song with a pulsing beat that has Breezy singing, “Turn up the music, ’cause the sun just came up/ Turn up the music if they try to turn us down/ Turn up the music, ’cause I’m trying to hear the speakers blow/ Turn up the music, fill your cup and drink it down,” followed by repeated chants of “If you’re sexy and you know it, put your hands up in the air.”

With a release date for Fortune to be announced soon, Brown is in the studio putting the finishing touches on his fifth studio album, the follow-up to 2011′s F.A.M.E.

Back in October, Brown reached out to Team Breezy via Twitter, revealing a single from his upcoming album. “STRIP [from Brown's Boy in Detention mixtape] is one of the singles off of FORTUNE so request at RADIO!” Brown tweeted.

Fans can’t expect Brown to be doing much more than tweeting about this album: Earlier this month Brown’s manager, Tina Davis , told Billboard magazine that the singer wouldn’t be doing any interviews in 2012. “We’re not trying to be rude, selfish or disrespectful to anyone in any way,” she told the mag. “If people are going to judge anything, judge him for his talent. He signed up to sing and entertain, not to talk about his personal life.”
