Chris Brown has the ability to turn grown women into whimpering teenage girls. His female fans, wet with desire as they daydream about the day he’ll have their legs wrapped around his head, continue to pledge their allegiance to him.
Forget the fact that at least four of the albums’ songs were released earlier this year, or that his star barely sparkled with his laughable post breakup album Graffiti, and let’s also overlook his recent Good Morning America tantrum; for all intents and purposes, F.A.M.E places Chris a step closer to relieving his glory days of R&B success.
Vocally, “Up to You” is one of the best tracks in Chris’ catalog. Crooning about allowing his girl to pilot their relationship while he takes the backseat is admirable; admitting that he messed up his last one makes him a man. Breezy is the latest celeb to catch 'Bieber Fever;' he and Justin collaborate on "Next to You," as they sing about their one and only.
Proving that he’s more than a singer, Team Breezy and The Taylor Gang collide on “Bomb”, a track featured on the extended version of F.A.M.E., which showcases a relaxed and energetic Chris rapping over a dance heavy electric beat. With three other bonus songs added to the deluxe edition, Chris could’ve easily swapped the done-to-death current singles and made one album.
What Chris lacks in the Michael Jackson-and-S.W.V.-sampling “She Ain’t You”, he makes up for by tag-teaming with Ludacris in the sexually-charged song “Wet the Bed”. Although the guilt-ridden “Should’ve Kissed You” reflects Chris’ past, it’s his smooth velvet voice on “Beg For It” that will have women everywhere exploding with anticipation.
