Chris Brown

Brown in 2024 Christopher Maurice Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, dancer and actor. He is regarded as one of the most prominent artists in R&B music,}} being credited as an evolver of the genre, and often being referred to by contemporaries as the "King of R&B".}} His R&B has been characterized by several influences from other genres, mainly pop music and hip hop. His lyrics develop predominantly over emotional and hedonistic themes. Brown has had wide comparisons to Michael Jackson for his singing and dancing abilities.}}

In 2004, Brown signed with Jive Records and released his eponymous debut studio album the following year, which was later certified triple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). With his debut single "Run It!" (featuring Juelz Santana) peaking atop the ''Billboard'' Hot 100, Brown became the first male artist since 1995 to have his debut single top the chart. His second album, ''Exclusive'' (2007), was met with further commercial success worldwide, and spawned his second ''Billboard'' Hot 100 number one "Kiss Kiss" (featuring T-Pain). In 2009, Brown received much media attention after pleading guilty to felony assault of his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna; he was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service, with his personal life and legal issues being highly publicized by media outlets in the following years. This foresaw the release of his third album, ''Graffiti'' which was considered to be a commercial failure compared to his previous works. Following ''Graffiti'', Brown released his fourth album ''F.A.M.E.'' (2011), which became his first album to top the ''Billboard'' 200. The album contained the commercially successful singles: "Yeah 3x", "Look at Me Now" (featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes) and "Beautiful People" (featuring Benny Benassi), and earned him the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. His fifth album, ''Fortune'', released in 2012, also topped the ''Billboard'' 200.

Following the releases of ''X'' (2014) and ''Royalty'' (2015), both peaking in the top three of the ''Billboard'' 200, his eighth album, ''Heartbreak on a Full Moon'', a double-disc LP consisting of 45 tracks, was certified Gold by the RIAA for combined sales and album-equivalent units of over 500,000 after one week, and was later certified double Platinum. Brown's ninth studio album, ''Indigo'' (2019) found similar success, debuting atop the ''Billboard'' 200. It included the single "No Guidance" (featuring Drake) which broke the record for the longest-running number one on ''Billboard'''s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. Its chart success was outdone with the single "Go Crazy" (with Young Thug) released the following year, which broke Brown's own record for the longest-running number one on ''Billboard'''s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart set previously by "No Guidance". In 2022, his ''Indigo'' album spawned a sleeper hit with its song "Under the Influence", which was re-released as a single.

Brown has sold over 140 million records worldwide, making him one of the world's best-selling music artists. He has gained a cult following, and is one of the highest-grossing African American touring artists of all time. In terms of charts and certifications, Brown holds the record for the most ''Billboard'' Hot 100 entries of any male singer in history, the most top 40 hits of any R&B singer in history, the most RIAA Gold-certified singles of any male singer in history, and the most RIAA multi-Platinum singles of any male singer in history. At the end of 2019, ''Billboard'' named Brown the third most successful artist of the 2010s decade in R&B and hip-hop music, behind Drake and Rihanna in first and second, respectively. Additionally, Brown has won a total of 199 awards from 513 nominations over the course of his career. Brown has also pursued an acting career. In 2007, he made his on-screen feature film debut in ''Stomp the Yard'', and appeared as a guest on the television series ''The O.C.'' Other films Brown has appeared in include ''This Christmas'' (2007), ''Takers'' (2010), ''Think Like a Man'' (2012), ''Battle of the Year'' (2013) and ''She Ball'' (2021). Provided by Wikipedia
