Has fatherhood changed Chris BrownThat’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.”

Teyana Taylor is showing just how sexy seven years of progress looks.

In a recent shoot, for Rolling Out Magazine, the Do Not Disturb singer gets a little seductive for their latest issue. During her session, she dished the latest on her highly anticipated debut album, VII, dropping this Tuesday! Taylor also highlights how the G. O. O. D. Life with future icons Kanye West and Pharell helped her along the way.

“Pharell and Kanye are perfectionists and that’s all they surround themselves with and that’s all they know,” she says. “When you’re around that, it automatically rubs off on you. So everything I do has to be perfect, it can’t be half-a-ed. You either gotta do it or not at all. So, definitely perfection is the most important thing.”

In addition to, Teyana also reveals how she deals with the haters, and her happiness with Knicks baller Iman Shumpert, who she calls her “peace of mind.”

“I’m happy,” she admits about her relationship with Shumpert. “I’m not on the phone too much and I’m not really on social media now. When you have a peace of mind, which is your companion, you listen to your man so when he’s telling you to calm down, then eventually you let it go. But when you’re in your own space and you feel independent with your feelings, then its just like, “Ok, I’m going to do what I want to do. But when you have your peace of mind, it takes your mind off all the negativity and all the people that [are] trying to bother you.”
