Chris Brown - Chris Brown: 'New Album Is A Triumph'

R&B star Chris Brown has declared his recent number one album a "triumph" because it proved to critics his career is not over.
The singer hit headlines back in 2009 for a vicious attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna which landed him an assault conviction, probation and a community service sentence. Brown's career nosedived after the incident and he has fought hard to regain his popularity over the last two years.
His latest album, F.A.M.E., debuted at the top of America's Billboard 200 chart in March (11), marking Brown's first ever number one record - and the star is adamant his success has proved "everybody" wrong.
He tells The Source magazine, "I don't really think it's a comeback album. I feel like it's an album of triumph, like an underdog type of album. It's more of me showing and proving everybody wrong. I don't think I ever went anywhere..."
He adds, "I recognise my music touches people and everything I do negative or positive affects people all over the world. So that's definitely a blessing and a curse... The thing I dislike most about my life is living up to everybody's expectations, never being able to be like, 'F**k it,' and do what I want to do, not care about someone's opinion. As artists we're opinionated, but we definitely do care about the public's opinion because that's our consumer."
