    @TEAM CANTY, He has already released great music with ‘Won’t make a fool out of you’, this song was the shit. ‘In & Out’ as well in a different style.

    Rihanna and Chris Brown two of the best 5 albums??


    I like them both, but…. lest be serious, there are wayyyyyy better albums and artists out there and making really different and unique things.

    But I guess this singer doesnt use to hear too much music appart from the mainstream young singers
