Royalty (Deluxe Version)
No matter what life throws at R&B bad boy Chris Brown, he stays focused and confident. His seventh album Royalty gives Team Breezy plenty to obsess over. He keeps the focus on himself—only three guests are featured, Future being one of them (“U Did It”). Music styles like trap, EDM, and G-funk pepper the tracks, thrusting him deeper into the pop jet stream. He confirms his super lover status on “Back to Sleep” and “Little Bit” and estimates how much chill he has on “Zero” and “No Filter.” Like the hero in a samurai flick, Brown artfully fends off the haters and returns the love.
