Chris Brown has shared his long-awaited studio album Breezy.
The project, which was announced nearly two years ago, marks the artist’s first solo effort since 2019’s Indigo. Since then, Brown reportedly recorded hundreds of tracks for the project before narrowing it down to the final 24. He spoke about the process during a recent interview with Big Boy, explaining his intention to give listeners a variety of sounds.
“I be having so many songs. I think for this actual project, I had almost 250 songs,” he said. “I was like, ‘Yeah, we gotta scale it down and figure out what we gonna do. … Too many of the songs sound in the same frequency. It’s like a show. You got the beginning, the climax, and then the end. But I still want to give my audience at least two or three of the same and not release a whole album where every song sounds the same.”
Breezy includes the previously released tracks “Iffy,” “WE (Warm Embrace),” and the Wizkid-assisted “Call Me Every Day.” It also features big-name artists like Lil Durk, Jack Harlow, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Ella Mai, Fivio Foreign, EST Gee, Lil Durk, H.E.R., and more.
“The features that I did have, they’re people that I have a natural, genuine relationship with and people that I feel are very talented,” Brown told Big Boy.
