Has fatherhood changed Chris Brown? That’s something that we all have to judge for ourselves. But his recent actions may sway that opinion.
Brown announced today that his seventh solo album will be titled Royalty, named after his 15 month-old-daughter.
Chris Brown is currently on his “One Hell of a Night Tour” with special guests Kid Ink, Omarion, Fetty Wap, and Teyana Taylor but took the time to tweet out the new title of his album. Brown has been in full father mode since it was announced that he had a daughter with a former model named Nia Guzman. Recently in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Brown had nothing but good things to say about his new role as a father.
I think this was just a blessing in disguise with my daughter because I get a chance to look at her and teach her the right path and also be a father in my daughter’s life…Just to see a smile on her face—just to see the littlest things—is emotional for me, so I just love that aspect of being able to be a father now.
Brown hasn’t given a release date for Royalty but it is expected for this Fall and could even include a track with a contribution from Zayn Malik (former One Direction member). Brown told Capital FM “I don’t shy away from anyone and I think he’s a great artist…Now he’s doing his solo thing, I know he has a huge fan base and the fans are waiting to hear his stuff, so it would be cool to get down and collab.” Brown even referred to Malik as his “homeboy!”
Back to Royalty, here at the Social B., we just can’t get enough! She’s just so cute! Which might be part of the reason Brown told ET that “Being a father is great. I’ve been able to set aside my own wants and necessities for my daughter.”
