Personalities | Chris Brown | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1989)

American R&B star Chris Brown burst into the charts at just 16 years old in 2005. His self-titled debut album went straight to No. 2 in the US off the success of his debut single ‘Run It!’. Second LP Exclusive made the Top 5 two years later, but an assault conviction involving then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 threatened to derail his career. Even so, third album Graffiti (2009) made the Top 10 at the end of the decade.
