Chris Brown Wants ‘Real Music’ to Make a Comeback

Chris Brown

Chris Brown may have lost in his category at the Grammys, but he wasn’t feeling sorry for himself. Instead, the R&B superstar gave props to his fellow nominee Miguel and weighed in on the state of music.

During the pre-show, Breezy co-signed Miguel, who he was up against in the category of Best Urban Contemporary Album (Frank Ocean won the award). “I think he’s had a great and wonderful year,” he told Ryan Seacrest on “E! News.” “To be from an R&B-kinda background, he’s taken that and he’s doing his thing.”

Breezy hopes that music is headed in a more authentic direction. “A lot of the music nowadays, I love it, but it’s very gimmicky. Even some of my music is gimmicky,” he laughed. “But I just want to go back to the real music—a lot of instruments, the real band, essence of being able to perform and be an entertainer.”

He also downplayed the car accident that he had over the weekend. “It’s cool, I’m fine. A litte bit of bumps, I’m good though,” said Chris. “The paparazzi tend to get out of hand. It’s all good though.”

    @coconut, cosign with both of you. ALL of his music is crappy. Not sure if he’s even capable of making authentic music. All he does is follow in others footsteps, never setting his own sonically. It’s the same ole beats and the same ole subject matter from him. THAT’S why his music isn’t selling.

    @Speechless, Couldn’t have said it better myself. He’s a hypocritical clown & he’s stifling the genre he claims to be a part of. If he wants “real music” to come back than why have his last few albums been riddled with trashy electropop & fruitier raps than Nicki Minaj? He’s whack & he knows it. Sell out.

    @Speechless, same thoughts, besides I’m sick of his electropop/europop songs, it ain’t R&B what he’s giving us.

    Well… he could start with himself and his girlfriend/main side chick.

    @DRB, actually Rihanna’s music of lately hasn’t been gimmicky at all. Diamonds and Stay incorporate new and old sounds and talk about more meanful things. So Cb on his own

    I honestly would like to see Chris go away like Kanye did, on an island somewhere, make the best music of his life, then come back with it.

    Well help bring if back Chris! He is dope with the pen, but he has to make music that sells (his gimmicky music). Congrats to Miguel & Frank on their wins.

    His an idiot, his the one that is making dumb techno music. What happened to Pop it, Winner etc! Chris sit down.

    I’m glad that he acknowledged the fact that his music is not as good as it used to be. This young man needs to take a long break to mature/ find a way to separate his private life from his art. People don’t even care about his music anymore. It’s all about his so-called “love” life and the negative things that surround his name. I’ve always thought he had the potential to be way better than what he is now. He needs to work on himself and stop giving the media reasons to push him down.

    [Reply]

    Wow Reply:

    @Sharlyn, you have a point. But he has pushed his love life to the forefront as a way to garner attention for his music. So now all people care about is the scandal.

    @Wow, How has HE HIMSELF pushed his love life to get attention? You sound so stupid. The media stalks him and posts stories based on pictures and assumptions. What does he have to promote for attention? smh.

    @Wow, i totally agree with you! you can’t force feed your personal life to people via twitter, instagram, etc. then get mad when people stop checking for your product but only want to hear about said personal life. you want it to get back to real music, then start making REAL music again chris! i miss the pre-thug chris!

    He needs to get his priorities and life in order before he starts about ‘real music.’ Real music is out there he’s just too busy smoking blunts to notice.

    @Ursula, lmao! Hence why frank ocean and Miguel were nominated. I’m surprised his album was because it was shit.

    You fools ain’t even noticed he said his own music is gimmicky lol HE isn’t stupid. When it comes to music, that man doesn’t play.

    His next album is gonna be serious

    Wow Reply:

    @Ethan, uhhhh no he said some of his is gimmicky. When in actuality all of it is. He said he was bringing real music with fortune and we saw how that turned out. He will forever follow trends. That’s all he’s been doing.

    [Reply]

    Monkeyman Reply:

    @Wow, But fortune has a couple of decent tracks on it. Not all is music are Gimmicky. Not everyone will agree with that opinion.

    ocean is like in love with brown or something. ocean started the fight for attentiona and he can’t leave brown alone, it’s like he wants him to be gay and ocean is just weird. brown can sing for sure and he does have good music on his albums. and if you listened to the whole interview brown admits even his is gimmicky. ocean just won because he came out as a gay black dude.

    @dawn, what does Frank Ocean have to do with this post? and Ocean did not just win because he came out he won because his album is critically acclaimed scoring a 92/100 based on 48 reviews. Brown’s album on the other hand got a 30/100 on an album full of techno hits which spoke about NOTHING.

    Chris Brown hasn’t made good music since 2007. And I doubt he will ever again. He’s too busy doing electropop shit and boiling with controversy then crying about how he’s been “crucified.”

  18. jhuntdaprodigy

    Well if Chris wants “real music” to make a comeback then he needs to start making it. CB himself wouldn’t like this example, but Frank Ocean proved you can create an album of real music without all the autotune, dubstep, europop gimmicky stuff, and still manage to sell pretty decently. Channel Orange outsold Fortune, that should be enough for CB to realize he’s not doing it right. I think now that Justin Timberlake has returned with music sounding like nothing else on the radio, all the other singers are gonna have to step their game up

    He says that NOW and when Carpe Diem, as this next album is supposedly tentatively called, is released, it’ll be little bitter than Fortune, with repetitive sex songs and techno/europop/house music. Yeah, whatever Brown.

    [Reply]

    Wow Reply:

    @Tevin, you called it! He said Fortune was better than Fame and it all sounds the same. He’s whack. Offers no real versatility. When you hear a Chris brown song you will know what it’s about before you even press play. That’s how predictable he’s become.

    He wants “Real music” but most of his songs lately weren’t even good at all . He’s too busy doing other shit . I suggest him to pull a Yeezy & just take a break , go on a long vacation to a secluded place to get his mind right .

    Chris Brown needs his go to producer like how MJ had Quincy, Usher had JD, Justin has Timberland,etc. All those producers are real musicians and play live music.
