Chris Brown, the Turn Up the Music singer, dancer and heartthrob, came onto the music scene in 2004 when he signed with Jive Records at the age of 15. His good-boy image was established with his 2005 song Yo (Excuse Me Miss), and Brown quickly captured the hearts of girls and women everywhere.
By 2008, his album Graffiti, with the hit I Can Transform Ya, showed a more mature side of Brown. At 19, his relationship with singer Rihanna catapulted his personal life into the spotlight. After Feb. 8. 2009, the day Brown physically assaulted Rihanna, his image strayed far from the good guy who originally caught the industry’s attention.
As Brown rebuilt his career with his albums F.A.M.E (2011) and Fortune (2012), he was once again known as an industry sex symbol due to his raunchy lyrics, such as in his single No Bulls**t, and suggestive dance moves. In an April 2013 appearance on BET’s 106 & Park, Brown shared details of his sexual escapades while on a flight. He stated, “It was like one of them European first classes where you’ve got the big front, so you can put the cover up so don’t nobody see nothing.”
