Rap-Up TV: Kevin McCall Speaks on Chris Brown’s ‘Fortune,’ Solo Debut

Kevin McCall is stepping out from behind the scenes with his forthcoming debut, due on CBE/Jive Records. The singer-songwriter, who helped pen “Deuces” and Keri Hilson’s “One Night Stand,” caught up with Rap-Up TV to discuss his solo music and what fans can expect from Chris Brown’s upcoming album Fortune.

“Chris Brown is behind me 100 percent,” said Kevin, who formed a writing team with Chris and SeVen (formerly of RichGirl). “I’m working with Chris a lot. I did a lot of stuff with other producers just because I believe you have to venture out to find new sounds.”

He and Breezy collaborated heavily on Fortune, scheduled for an early 2012 release. “The Fortune album is really done. Chris Brown has four albums done if he wants to,” he revealed. “But the album’s done and it’s great. I like it better than F.A.M.E. personally.”

Kevin plans to join Chris on select dates of his “F.A.M.E.” tour, starting later this month.
