Chris Brown Readies ‘Calypso’
The tide is finally changing for Chris Brown. The R&B crooner has both a No.1 movie -- 'Takers' -- at the box office, and a No.1 single -- 'Deuces' featuring Tyga -- on the Billboard charts. In lieu of his re-established success, the 21-year-old is prepping the release of a new track off his untitled fourth album.
"Geeked UP!!! NEW SINGLE called 'Calypso' coming real soon produced by POLOW DA DON," Brown wrote yesterday via Twitter. "This is a song that women have been missing from ME!"
The youngster has experienced a heavy public backlash following his arrest for physically assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna in early 2009, but has since been doing his best to get back in the public's good graces. Aside from meeting his probationary requirements, stemming from the assault, the singer performed a heartfelt tribute to the late Michael Jackson at this year's BET Awards, and took home the AOL Fandemonium Award.
Last year Brown released his third album 'Graffiti,' which fizzled on the charts. He would later blame the album's lukewarm reception on being blacklisted from radio and retailers because of his legal issues. Brown's fourth album, which is said to feature appearances from Usher, Drake and Keyshia Cole, is due in stores sometime next year.
