Chris Brown “Heartbreak of a Full Moon”: Review
A week ago Chris Brown delivered his 45 song album, why? We still don’t know but people are liking it even though people’s attention span’s are so short these days. While most artists are accustomed to delivering short body’s of work, Chris Brown decided to over deliver his art to his fans. But to be fair, Brown has always catered a variety of sounds to his audience ranging across all genres sending him from chart to chart. On “Heartbreak on a Full Moon” he acts as a one man streaming service.
In “You Like” we see Chris Brown giving radio friendly messages on an electronic, up-tempo beat. “I want you to dance because you feel beautiful inside, baby,” he sings. Other groovy tracks are “If You’re Down,” ″Bite My Tongue,” ″Frustrated” and “This Way.” (FYI: “This Way” is one of the most happiest break up songs you’ll hear this year)
R&B SINGER BROWN
R&B Chris Brown is not to be mixed with his rapper persona, in a set of tracks the singer goes into full R&B mode and just like his pop tracks, it’s good stuff. We get a strip tease jam on ‘Pull Up” and the tasty but lyrically debatable “Covered In You”. ″A leak in your lovin, it’s on the verge of caving in.,” Brown croons, before adding, “go ’head and drench me with your body.”
CHRIS BROWN THE RAPPER
This is Chris Brown spitting real bars, he boasts about “a hundred on my wrist” on “Party” that features Usher and Gucci Mane with it’s super catchy hook. Brown channels singing and rapping on the down-tempo track “High End” with Young Thug and Future. And he dives deeper into his rap skills with “Pills & Automobiles” and “Sensei”.
CHRIS AT A VULNERABLE STATE
You see Chris Brown in a very vulnerable state in songs like “Grass Ain’t Greener” and his version of vulnerability seems to be in it’s rawest form on the achy “Paradise”, which is inspired by Donell Jones’ “Hope You Do” and the regret-laden “Enemy.” ″She was just one night/baby, you were my whole life,” he sings on the latter track. And Brown gets introspective about fame on “Yellow Tape.” ″Meeting with the devil,” he sings. “‘Here take this contract. Signature please. You can have it all, but your soul I’mma keep.’”
If you’ve been a Chris Brown fan from the start you’ll love this album, if you’re a casual fan you will have your select tracks that you will bump. It’s a nice album but a bit too long..all in all this seems like a trick to gain more streams and enter the Billboard Charts.
