Rachel Kaplan for iHeartRadio
There are only a handful of male pop stars that can still put on a dance-heavy stage show like Chris Brown. Aside from both of the Justins (Bieber and Timberlake), Breezy has the hit-filled catalogue to dance his way through a choreographed show with just a mic stand and a few dancers in place, and that's exactly what he did during his iHeartRadio Album Release Party in New York City in promotion for his just-released seventh studio LP, Royalty.
During the almost 40-minute show, Breezy further solidified his ability pull off a suave set of dance-heavy numbers for the iHeartRadio audience. Among the cuts included a string of new album songs like "Liquor," "Zero" and "Back To Sleep" as well as fan favorites like "New Flame" and "Loyal."
Later in the show, Chris sat down with Power 105.1's Angie Martinez to discuss the project, which if you weren't aware yet, is named after his daughter. "For me, it's about where I'm at in my life right now. I'm 26-years-old now and I'm only getting older, so level of maturity has changed. Impulse has changed a lot," he said. "I have to pave a way to show a new life and not kind of be doing the same bull. This album shows my growth as a man."
Asked what he wants for Christmas, Breezy had an unexpected response, telling Angie that he wants people to tune into what's going on around them. "I don't want to be politically correct when I say this because it's totally not BS. It's real. I would just want people to start wanting to know more," the singer revealed. "Want to know more about life. Want to know more about where we come from. Want to know more about what the government is doing. Want to know more about what the police are doing...For Christmas, I just want to encourage knowledge."
