We poppin’ like aaaayo because it’s Breezy’s birthday, and it gives us an excuse to listen to his music on repeat all day today!
The incredibly controversial (yet oh-so-talented) multi-hyphenate turns 27 today, with lots in store.
Aside from celebrating his birth on Cinco de Mayo, Chris Brown just released the first single off his new album, which is reportedly titled Heartbreak on a Full Moon. The new jam is called “Grass Ain’t Greener,” and my guess is there’s a chance he’ll perform it tonight during his scheduled appearance at Sutra night club in Orange County, CA. Scroll to the very bottom of this post to hear it.
Although there is much negativity associated with Royalty Brown’s dad, today is strictly about the music. So, lets celebrate one of the most gifted artists in history with the playlist below of his 27 best songs (in no particular order):
I’m still on a musical high from Friday night’s Chris Brown concert at Hollywood Palladium. But even if you didn’t have a chance to see adorable baby Royalty hit the stage with her dad at the end of the show, you can still get in the Breezy spirit by checking out his new album (named after his little one), which dropped on Friday.
I personally think the already-released radio tracks from this album are his best of the latest options, but I’ve included his song “Anyway,” featuring Tayla Parx as part of this week’s New Music Monday.
Also in the mix this week are Bag Raiders, J.Cole, Death Team, The Toxic Avenger, Great Good Fine OK, Coyote Kisses, Diiv and Nora en Pure, among many others.
I must point out that up until this week, I was unfamiliar with Retro Culture and P’ARIS, but I’m totally in love with their songs “Cold” and “Focus” (respectively).

Oh my goodness! Tomorrow is December 1st. That means the next turn of the months will also mean turn of the year!
But before we dive wholly into Christmas carols and dreidel classics, let’s kick off holiday month with some brand new “regular” music, shall we?
I’m thrilled because a longtime favorite of mine, Sneaky Sound System (who has apparently shortened things to just Sneaky) is out with a funky new dance track “All I Need,” while another fav, Wild Nothing, brings their signature indie dream pop sound with “TV Queen.”
Also on the list of 21 new songs this week is Chris Brown‘s “Fine By Me,” off of Dec. 18th’s Royalty (Deluxe version) album. I had the pleasure of previewing the 18-track LP over the weekend, along with his 34-song baby-making mixtape Before the Party. Fans will not be disappointed!
And here’s a little unexpected throwback love: Third Eye Blind released a new single “Rites of Passage.” The “Motorcycle Drive By”-loving high schooler in me will forever have a soft spot for Stephan Jenkins and anything he does. And fans of the rock band will be happy to know this fresh track does not stray far from their classic sound.
