Chris Brown Working on Follow-up to ‘Fortune’
First, in the trajectory of Chris Brown’s comeback, there was F.A.M.E. Then, 2012 saw Fortune. And now, according to production duo Da Internz, the “Turn Up The Music” singer is working on a follow-up.
Fortune, which received mostly negative reviews from critics, aimed to bring R&B back to the clubs. The follow-up, however, still has no clear sound definition, as the project, while possibly released in 2013, is still in the early stages. Da Internz, as well, didn’t reveal too many details in their interview with MTV.
Marcos "Kosine" Palacios, one half of the duo, told MTV: "It's really crazy with Chris because Chris can really do whatever the h-ll he wanna do. I've never seen anyone work as fast as him in the studio. His voice is incredible. He knows what he wants, you know what I mean? Like you'll play him a track and he'll be like, he'll just start talking about you know 'Oh, I know what this is; video, visual. I know who I would put on it.' "
As of now, no collaborations between Brown and other artists have been announced.
Released in June 2012, Fortune brought in another No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for the singer/rapper, moving 135,000 units its first week. Opening single “Turn Up The Music” additionally performed decently, going as high as No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, even as a No. 1 release, Fortune didn’t perform as well as F.A.M.E. did on the Billboard charts.
For a follow-up, what would you like to see Breezy do? Should he continue with Fortune’s dance vibe, or go back to more traditional R&B?
