NEW MUSIC: CHRIS BROWN | WE (WARM EMBRACE)
R&B star Chris Brown has released his latest single, “Warm Embrace,” which comes two months after he dropped “Iffy” in January 2022. Both are part of the much anticipated tenth studio album Breezy, which will feature sixteen tracks. He had previously stated, “the number of songs on this one will be the same amount of songs as my first album. Keep it classic.” Even though he has been attempting to keep it all music-related, he suddenly found himself in the headlines because of the voicemail from a woman who accused him of rape and filed a $20 million lawsuit against him. However, as seen by her subsequent voicemails to Brown, it seems that the lady was not done reaching out to Brown even after the alleged rape had taken place. In January of this year, the unidentified lady filed a legal claim against Brown, accusing him of rape aboard a Miami boat in December of 2020. There has been no turning back for him since then. If the woman’s charges are accurate, Chris Brown wants to file a counter-suit against her for defamation, and the woman’s lawyer has also dropped out of the legal proceedings. A Virginia native, Brown signed with Jive Records in 2004 and released his self-titled debut album, which became certified triple platinum. His single “Run It” went straight to number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the first male artist since 1995 to have his debut single top the chart. His second album “Exclusive” generated an even bigger commercial success and earned him his second Billboard Hot 100 number one.
