Chris Brown’s Royalty album won’t make your Black Friday shopping bag as expected. The singer revealed in an interview with Hot 97 on Monday (Nov. 23) that he will be pushing out the LP named after his 1-year-old daughter to next month.
“Well Black Friday, the pre-orders will be there, but the real date is gonna be Dec. 18,” he said.
Brown also assures that being a father won’t make him switch up his act. “For me, with my daughter and most of the records that I make are more sexual — that’s how my daughter was made,” he explains. “I wouldn’t change my whole regimen of how I move and how I act music-wise. I do music that can appeal to all different ages and all different races.”
He also spoke about his high-profile exes, Karrueche and Rihanna, sharing nothing but well wishes. “I’ve made my mistakes and I’m totally in acceptance for any wrongs that I’ve done but I can only wish and hope for the best for that person … it’s just more blessings and success to them,” he said.
Before exiting, he also offered his two cents on Aaron Carter’s recent Michael Jackson comment. “People are always gonna have their views on what they think they deserve — even myself,” he explained. “I could’ve done the same thing. I could’ve been on Instagram, saying ‘Hey, I’m the next Michael Jackson. What do you mean? I dance, I sing.’ But once you realize that crying out for help … it’s not gon’ matter ’cause people are never gonna give you what they want, they’re gonna give you what they think you should have … I respect Michael Jackson. There will never be anybody else like him.”
