Chris Brown is an American hip-hop and R&B artist. He began in 2005 with his self-titled album, Chris Brown, when he was sixteen. Since then his style has become more refined and mature. His music and dancing has been compared to that of Michael Jackson.
His second album is called Exclusive. The album lead singles like Wall to wall, Kiss Kiss (Ft. T-pain) and Forever. In 2008, Brown's musical setbacks were partially attributed to a domestic assault. At around 12:30am on February 8, 2009, Brown and his girlfriend and fellow R&B singer Rihanna had an argument which escalated into physical violence, leaving Rihanna with visual facial injuries which required hospitalization.
In 2008, Brown began work on his-then upcoming third studio album. According to him, he would experiment a different musical direction for his new album—titled Graffiti—while hoping to emulate fellow American singers Prince and Michael Jackson. He says, "I wanted to change it up and really be different. Like my style nowadays, I don't try to be typical urban. I want to be like how Prince, Michael and Stevie Wonder were. They can cross over to any genre of music." The album's lead singles I Can Transform Ya, Crawl.
