Chris Brown has had some very public personal struggles but the Virginia crooner isn’t shying away from the spotlight on his next album. The singer has announced that the title of his follow-up to 2009’s Graffiti will be Fame.
“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 Fame so make sure you check it out,” Brown said when he recently played radio host on 102.3 The Beat in Austin, Texas. According to some reports, the title references a “Fame” tattoo a “Fame” tattoo the singer sports on his arm.
The singer also urged fans to look out for the singles “Yeah 3X,” a high-energy track infused with chirpy techno rhythms, and “Calypso” which he tweeted about in early September. “I’m trying to get everything together, figure out what I’m [going to] do with the album,” he explained.
Brown has been making a lot of moves on the music scene recently. His single with Young Money spitter Tyga, “Deuces,” topped the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop chart. He has also appeared on Chicago O.G. Twista’s “Make a Movie” and revamped Nicki Minaj’s “Your Love.”
Breezy’s “Deuces” collaborator Kevin McCall recently dished about some of the singer’s new songs, including the “Rest of My Life” and “Another You,” in which the R&B star tries out another musical direction.
“We’re going to keep working on new stuff from here. That kid’s got a lot of records so it’s tough picking out cuts. It’s really new right now,” McCall said. “The song ‘Another You’ is country. It’s like Hootie and the Blowfish, so it should be something different, something new and fresh.”
