Overview

The week "Run It!" was released, it went straight to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and became the first single from a male artist to debut at that spot. That's no slight feat, especially for a reheated version of Usher's "Yeah!" made by a fresh-faced teenager who reps a little town in Virginia that rhymes with "grab a hammock." On "Run It!," Chris Brown is boosted by production from Scott Storch and an appearance by Juelz Santana. The song's way of tempering Brown's small-town innocence with hard-edged backing and a guest spot from an MC of ill repute is clearly a strategy to make the singer appeal to more than tween girls. (Had Brown been coming up in the early '90s, Quincy Jones -- not Dr. Dre -- might've produced him and Prince -- not Luther Campbell -- might've assisted, which just goes to show how much R&B has changed in 15 years.) Chris Brown, a durable debut album, almost always involves an even push-and-pull between what appeals to kids who don't consider street credibility, and those who do, all the way down to the visuals: check the album cover, featuring the singer's strained "Don't mess with me!" face, and compare it to the photo spread inside, featuring Brown's natural "Pinch my cheeks!" face. He doesn't often try to sound harder or more demonstrative than necessary, unlike a lot of singers his age who have sprouted during the late '90s and early 2000s, and he rarely oversteps the kind of romantic territory that most teens find relatable. Toughness comes instead from the beats, whether they're provided by the Underdogs, Dre & Vidal, Cool & Dre, or the overworked Storch. While Brown's audience will be almost exclusively 18 and under, few of his fans will feel sheepish in owning this album. He's a refreshing presence, a high-schooler who's neither as family friendly as Will Smith nor as comically vulgar as Pretty Ricky. [The 2005 DualDisc edition comes packaged with an additional DVD of bonus material.]

chris brown is one of the most herd cd's in my cabinet. it has everything, from romantic songs, to hip hop songs that always cheers a girl up when she's sad, or makes her jump up and dance when she's happy.

Hey Chris! My name is Delores Leandry and I used to live in New york but now I live in savannah Georgia. I love your CD i listen to it everyday. I dont have a favorite song beacuse they all are so nice. Everytime I hear the song Say Goodbye on the Radio or on the CD I start dancing to it. I saw your video and I love the part when you was on stage and started danceing with those two girls. I love the way you dance it really ispires me to see u dance. When you first came out i thought you was so sexy. You still are and your voice was just OMG i cant even explain. Alot of times I wonder If i will ever meet you. I LOVE YOU CHRIS BROWN!! Keep ya head up and keep up the good work.
