Chris Brown’s 45-song album not the skip-fest you would expect

Chris Brown, “Heartbreak on a Full Moon” (RCA). Chris Brown sure has some nerve, releasing a 45-song album when audience attention spans are notoriously short, while most artists agonize over trimming their set into a carefully curated bundle that precisely captures the latest evolution of their sound.

But, alas, Brown doesn’t seem concerned about attention spans or careful curation. And, to be fair, his sound has always been the sum of varying genres, each one sending him to the top of one chart or another. That said, with “Heartbreak on a Full Moon,” Brown performs like a one-man streaming service, and he’s got hits on every channel.
