Chris Brown is a great artist and songwriter. He has a great deal of talent. He has released nine albums so far. He has had some personal problems in his life, but he seems to be getting his act together. He is a true star in the music world. I like this album and I would recommend it to anyone who likes R&B. Chris Brown is a young star and he has a bright future. I think he will become a mega star in the music industry. 827ec27edc
