Chris opened up on a BET special about how emotional it was for him to make his ‘Grafitti’ album. Was it because of Rihanna? Read on to for more details!
Chris Brown didn’t hesitate from opening up about personal tribulations on the BET special, “Defining Moments: Chris Brown’s Journey.”
The 25-year-old R&B star revealed that he CRIED when working on his Grafitti album which he coincidentally — or not — began working on after he violently attacked ex-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009.
“When I put out Graffiti, at first, it was like, okay I want to do When I put out Graffiti, at first, it was like, okay I want to do Prince, Michael Jackson, mix it up, pay homage. But my situation in life, being an adult and trying to grow up, my own trials and tribulations, I just kinda focused on writing whatever I felt,” he said. “Different producers would fly in and out and I would just write, write, write. Some nights I cried, some nights I laughed so whatever you heard on that album, it was strictly from the heart.”
Looking back at his album, it definitely appears as if some songs were written about RiRi.
In his song “So Cold,” he sings: “If you ever see her. If you ever meet her. If you ever get a chance to sit down and talk to her; then tell her it’s so cold; it’s so cold, it’s so cold, here without her.”
And in “Famous Girl” Chris sings: “Drake would say that you’re the ‘Best He Ever Had;” rumors come and go; but keep your shadow everywhere you go it follows.”
Hmm! The special was definitely amazing and it was totally cool to see Chris open up about his music.
