Chris Brown is an American R&B singer, songwriter, and dancer. He made his career debut in 2005 and has since gone on to release more than 10 albums, several of which have gone multi-platinum.

His interest in music started when he became part of the church choir. By age 15, he signed with Jive Records and released his first album in 2005, which went double platinum. His second album, “Exclusive,” became a massive hit, spawning multiple chart-topping singles. His fourth album, F.A.M.E., became his first album to top the “Billboard” 200. What’s more, the album also earned him a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album.

Born Christopher Maurice Brown on May 5, 1989, in Tappahannock, Virginia, Brown combined his music career with acting. He made his acting debut in the film “Stomp the Yard” and has also appeared in the films “Takers,” “Think Like a Man,” and “Battle of the Year,” as well as the TV show “Black-ish.”

His music career has seen him amass several accolades, including a Grammy Award, 19 BET Awards, 60 ASCAP Awards, and 4 NAACP Image Awards. Also, he has sold over 140 million records worldwide.

In addition to music and acting, Brown is an entrepreneur with several business ventures and various investments. He is behind the CBE record label, which is a subsidiary of Interscope. After owning 14 Burger King restaurants, introduced a cereal known as Breezy’s Cosmic Crunch.

He has also collaborated with several brands over the years, including an NFT sales and distribution site, a cannabis brand, and an electric vehicle manufacturer. He also has partnerships with clothing brands such as Black Pyramid, A Bathing Ape, Snipes, and The Auracles. In March, he launched a line of vape pens under the banner CB 15K x Chris Brown Disposable Vape.

His success in music, movies, and business has fetched him a fortune. Based on speculative estimates from various sources, he has a net worth of $50 million.

His impressive art career has not been without challenges. Brown has had a chequered past in terms of his relationships with his former flames. In 2009, the Excuse Me Miss singer made national headlines after he physically assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna during an altercation. The incident reportedly left the Bajan singer with severe injuries and in need of medical attention. After reaching a plea agreement, Brown later pleaded guilty to the assault. Although the incident has been around for more than a decade, it continues to be a topic of discussion.

In 2021, he was also under investigation for battery after a woman claimed the R&B singer hit her during an altercation at his home in San Fernando Valley.
