In Chris Brown news, the singer pleads for his fans to help him get his music back on the radio. The audio that Chris Brown recorded for his fans can be heard at RadarOnline.com.
In Chris Brown news, the artist has put it out there that his records are not being played enough
In June of 2008, Chris Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault charges against singer Rihanna. The abuse against Rihanna continues to plague Chris Brown today, despite the community service he has already completed and the probation he’s been put on. Perhaps worst of all, his record sales have been affected, and the singer has made it clear that he’s worried about it. Back in February of this year, Chris Brown was a guest on Mojo in the Morning and said that he was being treated unfairly as an artist. Now Brown has produced an audio tape begging his fans to ask the radio stations to play his music. “I ain’t never really did this, but right now I’m just callin’ y’all. I need all of my fans help. I need all of the fans I have,” says Brown. “Some radio stations are not playing my records.”
In this news on Chris Brown, Chris says radio stations aren’t playing his music. Is it right for radio stations to blacklist Brown?
Said Brown on Mojo in the Morning, “I’m a performer, but people make mistakes, I think people have to realize that everybody’s human…” But according to Brown, the radio stations aren’t listening, and fans of Chris Brown who listen to stations that play his music will likely agree. Most would agree that Brown’s latest album Graffiti has not hit the air waves as well as his hits from the past. If there is indeed a reluctance by radio stations to play Brown, should the stations get over it or is domestic violence so reprehensible that no apologies are accepted? Will fans come to Brown’s aid? If they haven’t come to his aid yet, is it realistic to assume that they will now?
The news about Chris Brown isn’t just a problem with radio stations
It’s not just radio stations that Chris Brown has had to worry about. Other entertainment promotional vehicles have blasted him or ignored him. Simon Vozick-Levinson of Entertainment Weekly criticized Brown’s video for Crawl, a song on the Graffiti collection, focusing his comments on Brown’s domestic abuse problem. “By centering this clip on an ex he can’t stop thinking about (played by Cassie), Brown is practically begging for us to read it as a statement on his former relationship with Rihanna – you know, the relationship he hastened to an end by brutally assaulting her in February.”
Back in December of 2009, Brown said he was ignored by the annual BET Awards, an African American award show that could have been a good showcase for his new music. Brown responded to the slight by calling the award show “wack.”
