Now it all makes tremendous sense why Chris Brown released a 2 disc 45 song album in 2017 called Heartbreak on a Full Moon, and he released almost no music in 2018. He potentially was fulfilling his prior contractual obligations and waiting out the time on its agreement. The music industry is a funny monster at times and have been playing artists almost since day one. Decades after its formation, and seeing what happened to those before themselves, artist have wised up. Chris Brown is one of those artist who have wised up. Realizing his power not only as an artist and song writer but also as a marketeer, he demanded his worth.
Yesterday (January 4th), Chris finalized and sign a very lucrative deal with RCA. The deal gives him a great deal of creative power with his music. Importantly, it also give him a great deal of ownership in his own art. In fact, the deal Chris signed with RCA has made him one of the youngest musicians to ever own any of his own master recordings. This deal in its face value will set an example for many of the artist who will come after Chris Brown, encouraging them not to settle for less. CONGRATS are in order to Chris Brown!!! This is truly a landmark deal.
RCA Records released a statement stating, “This new deal structure between Brown and RCA Records, will undoubtedly enhance the release of new Chris Brown music, content, and much more throughout 2019 and beyond.”
Chris’ first release via his new RCA deal will be his upcoming new album, Indigo, which is scheduled to drop later this year. The first single from Indigo is the Scott Storch produced song “Undecided.” Check out its video below.
