Before the Party: the Mixtape No One Warned You About

After accusing his label of trying to sabotage his career, on what was supposed to be the release date of his sixth studio album, Chris Brown released a mixtape entitled Before the Party. Composed of an impressive 34 tracks the mixtape is everything one would expect from the superstar.

Touching on a variety of topics, including his very public break up with Karrueche Tran, the project also features another of his ex’s: Rihanna. Fetty Wap, French Montana and Wale are among others who make appearances on the tape.

With less than a month until the release of his highly anticipated album Royalty, it could be assumed that the mixtape is a compilation of songs that simply didn’t make the album. Never-the-less, it is definitely worth a listen.

In addition to dropping a mixtape with no warning, the heart throb also took to social media to announce that for every purchase of his new album $1 would go to the Children’s Miracle Network.

Too Much Fun for Sevyn Streeter and Chris Brown?

It looks like Chris Brown has teamed up with his protégé, Sevyn, again for her new single “Don’t Kill the Fun.” It was only a matter of time before the duo made an effort to score a follow up hit for their 2013 smash, “It Won’t Stop”, but is this the song to do it. The go-go inspired track, is rumored to has been produced by Rich Harrison who is responsible for Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love’ and  Amerie’s “1 Thing”. Harrison also worked with Streeter when she served as 1/4 of the short live r’nb girl group Rich Girl.

Sevyn Streeter and Chris Brown fans seem to be showing the song, released on iTunes, today love. It even merited tweets from actor, journalist and former 106 and Park host Terrence J, performer Ty Dolla $ign and actor turned singer/rapper (Tristan) Mack Wilds.

The r’n’b/ pop mash up has a horn heavy sound almost reminiscent of merengue and very similar to Ne-Yo’s “She Knows”. Probably not the sound expected from “nEXt” singer but maybe this change in direction will still be fun.
