He’s most known for his smooth vocals, infectious dance moves, vibrant personality, and dropping the hottest bangers. None other than the talented Chris Brown recently released his 8th studio album Heartbreak on a Full Moon on October 31, 2017. The album is a double-disc, which consist of 45 songs that complements each emotion you may be feeling. If you’re going to give it a spin, it’s best to listen to a few at a time because the whole album is nearly three hours long.

There have been no other double albums that received the most recognition and success as Michael Jackson’s HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I album, which sold over 33 million copies. The pressure was placed on Brown to release a high-quality album; and surely, he succeeded in producing one. This has been Brown’s most important project to date and people can see the blood, sweat and tears he put into this album to make it perfect for his “Team Breezy” supporters.  

Brown’s hit songs “Party”, “Grass Ain’t Greener” and “Privacy” were released prior to the album release date and have set the bar high for many of his fans. The R&B singer took a different direction with this project and provided his audience with a wide range of different styles. The album also features big names in Hip-Hop and R&B like Lil Yachty, Usher, Gucci Mane, Jhene Aiko, Dej Loaf, Yo Gotti, R Kelly, A Boogie, Kodak Black, and many more. HBOAF is surely an album that fits any mood you’re in. He has smooth, slow jams like “Hope You Do,” “This Ain’t,” and “To My Bed” and frenetic songs like “Rock Your Body,” “Bite My Tongue,” “Handle It” and “High End.” A few of his songs are borrowed from popular singles from other household names. In fact, “Questions,” the 5th single on HBOAFM, is an up-tempo dancehall song which samples Kevin Lyttle’s hit song “Turn Me On.” This album is extremely versatile and will certainly keep you intrigued to hear more songs—good thing there’s 45 songs!

Like many of his previous albums, HBOAF depicts what Brown has experienced in his life. In an interview with Complex, Brown explains the meaning behind the name of the album:

It’s that superstition, I’m around it. But, imagine the sorrows or pain of going through just life. Just having to do it alone or having to feel not always as peachy. It’s just an embodiment of everything; so, I felt like Heartbreak on a Full Moon was what my soul wanted to say.”

One song on the album titled “Yellow Tape” has a lot of meaning and expresses Brown’s views on being in the music industry. The R&B singer talks about what goes on in his life as well as his traumatic experience in 2014 and how alone he felt. This song invites Brown’s audience into his feelings and allow them to connect with him on a different level.

Anyone can see how dedicated he was in making sure this project was perfect for his audience. The album has since been receiving positive feedback and blowing up on the charts. The day of the album release, HBOAFM ranked at #1 on the iTunes charts for three consecutive days and is currently at #4. Heartbreak on a Full Moon is by far one of Chris Brown’s best albums.
