LOS ANGELES, CA – A former pop star has turned to desperation in an effort to revive his career!
Chris Brown’s career has been on life support ever since his incident with former girlfriend Rihanna. The 20-year-old singer-dancer plead guilty to felony assault and is on probation for five years. The fallout from ill-advised actions has been catastrophic and Brown has resorted to desperate measures to stage his comeback.
“Hey, what’s up, y’all? CB. I ain’t never really did this but right now I’m just calling ya’ll, I need all of my fans’ help,” a humbled Brown said in a 90-second clip on SayNow.com. “I need all the fans that I have, I need y’all’s help. It’s crazy because a lot of radio stations … some radio stations aren’t playing my records. They’re not being that supportive and I wouldn’t expect them to.
Brown released this plea to his fans last week and the desperation is quite obvious. Brown’s recent album, Graffiti, has been less than successful when compared to his previous two. His 2005 self-titled debut album went double platinum and his 2007 album, Exclusive, went platinum. Graffiti has yet to achieve even gold status for album or single.
“It won’t be possible for me to be an artist if I don’t have support from people who give me an artist outlet,” Brown said. “I can’t be an underground mixture artist.”
Although it has been a year since his infamous incident, that’s not nearly enough time to heal the wounds. Brown might be going all-in a little too soon. He needs to relax and take a step back because it’s going to take some more time to completely fix his reputation. Releasing a new album merely eight months after everything seemed a little ambitious and its panned out that way. Chris Brown needs to stay positive and keep focusing on making himself a better person and the feel good news will start to pile up.
