Chris Brown recently released the cover art for his upcoming album “Royalty.” The cover features an intimate moment between Chris and his 1 year-old daughter, who the album is named after. The photo is absolutely adorable, Chris seems to be enjoying fatherhood, and we can only hope that the presence of his little princess keeps him out of trouble and focused on creating the music that we love.
While adorable, the cover has certainly stirred up some curiosity from fans regarding its content. Will this be an album of reflection? His latest feature with Rick Ross, titled “Sorry” certainly gives off that impression. Or will it be an album of truth – that focuses on the man he is – and stems away from the “hoes ain’t loyal” bit. Either way, we can expect to get a more focused and less reckless Chris Brown. The question is, will that be good for his music? And what exactly will change?
I’m curious to find out. Let me know what you think. In the meantime, listen to “Sorry” by Rick Ross ft. Chris Brown below.
ONE Musicfest held its annual festival in Atlanta on Saturday at the Aaron’s Amphitheater in Lakewood. The festival featured performances from several fan-favorites, including The Roots, Lauryn Fill, Janelle Monae & Wondaland, SZA, Wale, A$AP Rocky and Ghostface Killah (no Action Bronson in sight).
Thousands of people joined together to witness the wide variety of music, which ranged from hip-hop to alternative to soul, etc. The festival aimed to bring together a roster of artists that would prove to be enjoyable across multiple generations, and judging from the photos it was a huge success.
ONE Musicfest founder and producer, J Carter mentioned the vision behind ONE Musicfest, which stemmed from a lack of representation of soul and hip-hop under the same roof as alternative and rock genres.
“We have noticed that while there are many pockets of individuals that share taste in the same music, rarely do you see them share in this together. ONE Musicfest was created with the idea of ‘music as the universal language,’” said Carter.
The festival, which began in 2010 has been successful in bringing together the mentioned variety of genres over the past five years. Check out photos from this year’s performances below.

A$AP Rocky may have had a few unpleasant words for Rita Ora on his latest album, but those words have not stopped the British pop star from flaunting her body for the world to see. The 24 year-old artist has been and remains quite comfortable with her sexuality, which is clear in her latest music video.
The song “Body on Me” features Chris Brown who stars as Rita’s love interest in the video. “Body on Me” tells the story of a man and a woman who share a desire for one another, but for some reason have not been able to make a move.
In the video, both Rita and Breezy fantasize vividly about being intimate with each other. Rita flirts around with Chris in her bra and some jean shots, while Chris takes control of the situation – leaving PLENTY for the imagination. Then there’s this sort of awkward dance routine.
Not really a fan of the song, but anything that features Chris Brown has my vote.
Watch the video below and let me know what you think.
