Chris Brown tries honesty in new music
It's no secret that R&B crooner Chris Brown hasn't had the best luck over the past few years. From the altercation with then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009 to his most recent scuffle with fellow singer Frank Ocean, Brown's temper seems to get the best of him.
BET recently sat down with the 23-year-old musician who admits he's made plenty of mistakes in the past, and he explained to the source he is looking to make amends and share his side of different stories through personal songs.
"I just wanted to go and write personal records about what I've been going through, whether it's been heartbreak, joy, sorrow or anger [laughs]. Anything," Brown told the publication. "I would just rather let my people and my fans identify with who I am as a person."
Brown will have to wait and see how fans and critics alike will receive his sixth studio album, "X," set to drop late this summer. The rapper opened up further about his transformation in The Los Angeles Times, admitting he's trying to be as honest as possible, both with his lyrics and how this record is being made. He added he's doing everything from the heart, rather than what the record label wants.
Are you interested in hearing Brown's truthful music or do you think he's making a record to try and encourage fans to forgive him for his past problems?
