Chris Brown Says He Recorded 250 Songs for ‘Breezy’ Album
Chris Brown’s tenth studio album, Breezy, will be available in less than a week.
The eagerly anticipated collection took more than three years to complete and included hundreds of tracks. Chris said that he recorded 250 tracks before selecting just 23 for the album’s final tracklist in an interview with Big Boy for BigBoyTV.
“I be having so many songs. I think for this actual project, I had almost 250 songs,” he said. “I was like, ‘Yeah, we gotta scale it down and figure out what we gon’ do.’”
He described the process of elimination. “Too many of the songs sound in the same frequency. It’s like a show. You got the beginning, the climax, and then the end,” he said. “But I still want to give my audience at least two or three of the same and not [release] a whole album where every song sounds the same.”
In parallel with the release of his most recent album, Indigo, which featured 32 tracks on the standard version and 42 on the extended version, he began work on Breezy.
Chris is renowned for producing a lot of work. He disclosed that he had 800 tracks in the vault when promoting his 2017 album Heartbreak on a Full Moon. He admitted to having 800 unheard tracks on his phone alone at the moment to “Ebro in the Morning.” I’m not boasting. Just that I can only continue to be creative because of my work ethic.
Jack Harlow, Anderson.Paak, Tory Lanez, H.E.R., Blxst, Fivio Foreign, and Lil Wayne, who gave Chris “one of the hardest verses,” are among the guests on the next album Breezy, which will be released on June 24.
According to him, “the features I did have are people with whom I have a natural, true relationship and whom I feel are highly accomplished.”
He released “Call Me Every Day,” a joint effort with Wizkid, on Friday. He described the Nigerian star as being his friend for more than 15 years. “This time, we really, truly broke the record.”
