Chris Brown ‘Fortune’ Album Review
Chris Brown released his fifth studio album called “Fortune” via RCA on July 3rd,2012.
The Virginian crooner delivered 19 songs made mainly for the bedroom and the nightclub (heck there are even few tracks made for the strip-club).
Brown attempted to recreate the pornographic R’n'B era which existed in the 90s with a series of steamy, mid-tempo songs (“Biggest Fan,” “Bassline,”"2012″) where he explicitly went on and on about how good he can give it to his girl.
The Grammy award winning singer who has a real passion for dancing surprised many by including only a handful of techno tunes on the record (“Don’t Wake Me Up” and “Turn Up The Music”).
While there were few interesting tracks on the album (“4 Years Old” and “2012″) there was an obvious lack of creativity (beats too generics and lyrics too simple) and depth to make it the masterpiece that he was hoping for.
At the end of the day Brown used “Fortune” not to revolutionize R’n'B, but to put out a message – yes I have had few rough years of misfortune but now I am winning in the bed, in the music business and in life.
