“This tour will allow me to paint a picture musically,” commented Brown. “I want to bring a lot of energy and excitement to all the fans. It’s going to be a great show.”
It has been a big year for Chris. He dropped a new mixtape Boy In Detention on August 5th that features producers Kevin McCall, David Banner, The Bizness and many more, along with cameos from Justin Bieber, Tyga, Dawn Richard, just to name a few. MTV.com says: “Is there anything that Chris Brown doesn’t do?”
MTV recently announced the first line-up of artists who will perform live at the “2011 MTV Video Music Awards” with this statement: “After his memorable debut at the 2007 VMAs, Chris Brown, who has multiple VMA nods, is ready to up his game and unleash another huge performance.” The “2011 MTV Video Music Awards” will air live from the Nokia Theater at L. A. Live in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 9 p.m. (live ET/tape delayed PT.)
Billboard Magazine recently reported “When Chris Brown took the stage last month for the Today Show summer concert series, few expected that his performance would trigger a record turnout of a reported 18,000 plus fans for the largest turnout ever for the show.” The magazine also noted “Chris Brown posts three new titles on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop charts, marking only the third time the feat has been achieved since Billboard began using Nielson data to power the charts in 1992.” Chris is featured on Ace Hood’s “Body 2 Body” and Game’s “Pot of Gold,” along with his own “Wet The Bed” featuring Ludacris.
