Fortune (Deluxe Version) (Edited)
by Chris Brown
Released: Jul 2012
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Fortune finds Chris Brown on cruise control after reviving his career with two great singles, "Deuces" and "Look At Me Now." He offers a sequel to the latter in "Till I Die," a rap roundelay with Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa, but it isn't as good. He's still going full bore on electronic dance music, cranking out "Turn Up the Music" and "Don't Wake Me Up," but his most impressive moments come when he seduces his female fans on ballads like "Party Hard" and "2012." "Don't Judge Me" could be a subtext for his controversy-filled life, but you wouldn't know that from the lyrics.
