Chris Brown, Audio Interview
Chris Brown - Audio Interview
We caught up with Chris in London to talk about his new recordings, singing with Rihanna and making his own videos.
Multiple award winning artist Chris Brown releases Wall To Wall, the first single to be taken from his second album Exclusive on 19th August 2007. This is Chris' follow up to his multi-million selling, award winning 2005 debut album Chris Brown which catapulted him to a world-wide superstar and led him to be crowned by Vibe Magazine as the `The Future Of R&B'. Chris will be in the UK for a very exclusive performance the day before release at Nike's Midnight Madness event.
Wall To Wall is produced by Scott Storch who also produced Chris Brown's smash hit debut single Run It. The accompanying video is a masterpiece inspired by one of Chris' greatest influences - Michael Jackson's Thriller, incorporating movie style special effects and Chris' now signature phenomenal dance moves. Chris performed with Michael Jackson in London during the 2006 World Music Awards that later Chris described as simply "a true honour".
Additional remixes feature famed dancehall artist Elephant Man, rapper Jadakiss plus the UK's newest producers B&B and the Ashanti Boys.
In 2006 Chris was nominated for over 14 prestigious awards around the globe and won 9 of them; including Billboard, MTV TRL, BET, NAACP, Teen Choice and Soul Train Awards.
Huge praise has followed Chris Brown ever since his debut single Run It entered the US Billboard Charts at No.1 and went on to break records that had been held for over 7 years prior.
Chris Brown's leap into the music world wasn't as straightforward as it is for most. He doesn't hail from a famous urban music hub like New York. Neither was he part of a well connected scene. He is a gifted 17 year old from Tappahannock, Virginia - population 2000. Chris' talent and persistence got him known, got him his deal and made one of his dreams a reality - a No. 1 album. Let's see where they take him next.
