In a new promo clip for Chris’ upcoming TV special ‘The Rise & Rise of Chris Brown,’ the singer reveals his expert opinion on how to have a successful music career — and his thoughtful advice may surprise you! Watch the teaser right here!
There’s no doubt that Chris Brown, 25, is one of the most successful young artists in the business. However, it’s also no secret that he’s had his fair share of personal struggles, which have at times impacted his ability to make music. In Chris’ new TV special, The Rise & Rise of Chris Brown, which airs on Oct. 28 on Music Choice Play, he gives open and honest advice to up-and-coming artists.
Chris Brown To New Artists: His Shocking Advice
Chris loves being a music mentor but it seems he’s not completely confident in his ability to help rising stars. When asked to give newcomers advice, he started by saying, “I’d say, ‘Well, don’t take my advice because I’m gonna show you the wrong way to do it.'”
Even though Chris says young artists should ignore his advice, he shares some really powerful thoughts in this interview. First, he says it’s good to have a “tight circle” of real people who will be loyal to you. They will help reign you in when your ego starts to get out of control, which he admits happened to him.
“Don’t let the fame get in the way of your talent, because sometimes you can be super talented, but then arrogance plays a part in it, and you start being cocky and that overshadows the talent,” Chris says in the clip.
Chris’ cockiness may have led him astray in the past, but now he really does seem to be back on the right track. We’re so proud of how far he’s come!
