Concert money is dictated by album sales though. You think you gonna get 50k a show if you go out there and sell 20k your first week? And Frank Ocean been selling out shows for 2 years now. These cats not performing at stadiums.

I like Chris Brown but Fortune is terrible; the only song I even like is Sweet Love

F.A.M.E was much much better and Take Care>>>>>>>>>Fortune

Fortune reminds me of a crappy mixtape with no direction 

Very true. It has no direction. Almost like a soundtrack except most soundtracks have better direction. He doesn't know if he's techno, pop or r&B or hip hop. Songs are intolerable. There's not even a comparison in Take Care and Fortune. Fortune is some trash you come up with when your label let's you have your way and "yes man" you to death. RCA just sitting by watching Chris career decline.. 


So "Fortune" had no direction but "Take Care" did? That album is ALL OVER the place. One second he's having a duet with Rihanna half way crying and then he's having a duet with Lil Wayne. Then he's rapping about Houston and how much money he has, then he's calling his ex on some female #%%+ disrespecting her new man. I don't understand how CBs album has no direction but Take Care was cohesive. Drake himself even said he hates the track order of that album and wishes he could make changes. Take Care has some of the best production you will hear and that's it. 
but at the end of the day "Take Care" is critically acclaimed not to mention it sold a hell of a lot of albums

just because this little group called NT used to slurp Drake and all the sudden turned on him doesn't dictate how the actual public perceives him and this is why I think Chris Brown doing that dumb diss and again putting himself in bad light has people ready to give up on him again

He dropped 4 singles already and it got him 100k. And those were the most commercial singles not the album so how "simple" is it?

That's what they get for not making real R&B. The older black market is heavy on buying CDs

For not making real R&B? smiley: laugh

Did you actually listen to the album? Or basing this assumption off of 2 singles released?

We all know why Frank Ocean is doing these type of numbers, and it's not because of the music even though it's good.

Why do rappers & R&B singers drop 1 single/video a month before their album release date? Drop 2-3 singles/videos 2 or 3 months prior to the album release to build anticipation and show different tracks to the audience.

Now, two things... Chris Brown still came in #1 on the the SoundScan when "Fortune" dropped, but this shows Chris Brown SEEMS like a really big star, which he really isn't. Only Hispanic/Black women are into his music, not white women.
This is why he drops the techno/house tracks because his label probably told him that, if he drops that crap then, he can crossover and get radioplay on every radio station. Therefore, more and more people will get to know his music.

"Fortune" was pretty decent. I enjoyed it, he has a great stretch of songs which were straight bedroom bangers.

Chris Brown can demand what price he wants for a concert. It will sell out. He's still Chris Brown.

I go to school in Hamden, CT and live in Northern Virginia which are both predominantly white populated areas and all of the girls I know love Breezy, despite his past actions. He's the go to black guy for all white girls imo even after what he did.

come to think of it. Itll probably pick up in sales. Son put out a bunch of material (rapping & singing) and kept his buzz consistent though and that nonsense with Drake only added to it.

People just ain't buying records anymore.
