Tappahannock, Virginia, U.S. Rihanna (2007–2009; 2012–2013). Karrueche Tran (2011–2015). Christopher Maurice Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor. According to Billboard, Brown is one of the most influential and successful R&B singers ever,[2][3][4] with several considering him the "King of R&B" alongside Usher and R. Kelly.[5] His musical style has been defined as polyhedric, with his R&B being characterized by several influences from other genres, mainly hip hop and pop music. His lyrics develop predominantly over themes of sex, lovesickness, regret, romantic love, fast life, desire, and the difficulty of managing emotions. Being described by media outlets and critics as one of the biggest talents of his time in urban music, Brown gained a cult following, and wide comparisons to Michael Jackson for his stage presence as a singer-dancer.[6].

Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. Having signed with Jive Records in 2004, Brown released his self-titled debut studio album the following year, which became certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[7] With his first single "Run It!" peaking atop the Billboard Hot 100, Brown became the first male artist since 1995 to have his debut single top the chart.


His second album, Exclusive (2007), reached an even bigger commercial success worldwide, also spawning his second Billboard Hot 100 number one "Kiss Kiss". In 2009, Brown pled guilty to felony assault of his then girlfriend, singer Rihanna.[8] In the same year of the episode there was the release of his third album Graffiti, which was considered to be a commercial failure compared to his previous works.

Following Graffiti, Brown's fourth album F.A.M.E. (2011) became one of his biggest successes, being his first to top the Billboard 200, containing internationally successful singles such as "Yeah 3x", "Look at Me Now" and "Beautiful People", also earning him the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album.[9] His fifth album Fortune, released in 2012, also topped the Billboard 200.


Following the releases of X and Royalty, his 2017 double-disc album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, consisting of 45 tracks, was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for combined sales and album-equivalent units of over 500,000 units after one week, and in 2019 it has been certified Double Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Brown's ninth studio album Indigo was released in 2019, and became his third Billboard 200 number-one album.[10] It included the Drake featured track "No Guidance" which peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.[11] Its chart success was outdone with the single "Go Crazy" released the following year, alongside Young Thug as part of their collaborative mixtape Slime & B (2020).

The track reached number 3 on the Hot 100.[12][13]. Brown has sold over 193 million records worldwide, making him one of the world's best-selling music artists.

  • Brown taught himself to sing and dance at a young age and often cites Michael Jackson as his inspiration.[21] He began to perform in his church choir and in several local talent shows.[24] When he mimicked an Usher performance of "My Way", his mother recognized his vocal talent, and they began to look for the opportunity of a record deal.[7] At the same time, Brown was going through personal issues.
  • His parents had divorced, and his mother's boyfriend terrified him by subjecting her to domestic violence.[25].
  • At age 13, Brown was discovered by Hitmission Records, a local production team that visited his father's gas station while searching for new talent.[26] Hitmission's Lamont Fleming provided voice coaching for Brown, and the team helped to arrange a demo package, under the name of "C.

  • Reid, who offered to sign him that day, but Brown refused his proposal.
  • "I knew that Chris had real talent," says Davis.
  • "I just knew I wanted to be part of it."
