Breezysees Brown enlisting Fivio Foreign, Lil Baby, H.E.R., Wizkid, and more for the 24-track follow-up to 2019’s Indigo. In a recent interview with Big Boy, Brown revealed he had amassed nearly 250 songs at one point in the Breezy process.
“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,’” Brown said at the time. “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.”
During the same conversation with Big Boy, Brown addressed recent viral comparisons of him and Michael Jackson. In Brown’s opinion, there is “no competing” with the late King of Pop.
