Since releasing his self-titled debut album in 2005, Chris Brown has been providing fans with Hot 100 top 10 tracks like his first single “Run It,” coming of age track “Kiss Kiss” ft. T-Pain, and the love song “With You.” Beyond his collaborations with hip-hop stars Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, and Nicki Minaj, Brown has embraced the mainstream push of electronic dance music courtesy of his collaborations with Italian DJ/producer Benny Benassi and rising talent Derro.
To celebrate Chris Breezy’s 11 years as a solo artist, Billboard Dance rounded up seven of the best remixes of Chris Brown songs for your listening pleasure.
#1 Chris Brown Song Remix: Run It – Haterade Remix
After spending 38 weeks on The Hot 100 Chart, Chris Brown’s first hit “Run It” gets a So-Cal trap update courtesy of San Diego-based DJ/producer Haterade’s high energy interpretation.
#2 Chris Brown Song Remix: Beautiful People – Felix Cartal Remix
Canadian DJ/producer Felix Cartal lent his electronica sound to Chris Brown’s official club remix edit of “Beautiful People.” The original version peaked at No. 43 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart on Sept. 17, 2011.
#3 Chris Brown Song Remix: Loyal – Dave Edwards Remix
Switching up the chord progression and adding an electro-pop melody with tropical house influences, Dave Edwards’ remix of Chris Breezy’s “Loyal” is a refreshing remake that will keep you in a summer state of mind year-round.
#4 Chris Brown Song Remix: Liquor – ChildsPlay & Hato Remix
Chris Brown’s smooth party track “Liquor” gets a trap meets moombahton flavor after Dutch trio Childsplay team up with fellow countryman Hato. The original track was the debut single off Royalty, CB’s seventh album which peaked at No. 60 on The Hot 100 Chart.
#5 Chris Brown Song Remix: Little More – CH3VY Remix
Chris Breezy’s adorable daughter, Royalty was the inspiration for his song “Little More.” The music video quickly transitions from the ending of “Liquor” to the daddy and daughter duo waking up and spending the entire day together at home and playing in the Hollywood Hills. CH3VY’s remix maintains the sweet nature of the song and adds a higher energy trap vibe.
#6 Chris Brown Song Remix: Kiss Kiss – Ruddyp Remix
The Tappahannock, Va. singer just turned 18 when his single featuring T-Pain hit the airwaves in the fall of 2007. Ruddyp’s remix of CB’s hit finds inspiration from classic video game sounds and piles on the nostalgic flavor by adding a smooth Soul Train-inspired instrumental about half-way thorough the track.
#7 Chris Brown Song Remix: Gimme That (Remix) ft. Lil Wayne – Gualtiero Bootleg
Electric DJ/producer Gualtiero’s version of Brown’s third single maintains slick sound of the original track by enhancing Weezy’s verse making it a fun addition to your going out playlist.
