[pic] BIOGRAPHY: Chris Brown Christopher Maurice Brown was born on May 5, 1989 in the small town of Tappahannock, Virginia. His parents had already been divorced, and he said his mother’s boyfriend made him terrified all the time, due to the domestic violence his mother endured from her boyfriend. Since his childhood, music was something which always had been present in Brown’s life. He used to listen soul albums that his parents had owned, but eventually, Brown began to show interest in the hip-hop scene.
Brown taught himself to sing and dance at a young age, often citing Michael Jackson as his inspiration. He then began to perform in his church choir and in several local talent shows. At the age of 13, Brown was discovered by a local production team who visited his father’s gas station while searching for new talent. The singer then, moved to New York. The discography of Chris Brown consists of three studio albums and thirteen singles. The name of albums are Chris Brown, Exclusive and Graffiti.

The « Crawl » features Brown pensively singing about a relationship that has slipped out of his hands. He also said that it could be the best record he’s ever done. It is also speculated that the song could be referring to Brown’s failed relationship with Rihanna, though Brown has confirmed that the track isn’t just about her but has more of a universal message. But Brown told MTV News that the song actually isn’t just about his own relationships. He said « Crawl » is more of a universal message dedicated to moving on past any type of heartache.
The video for « Crawl » features R&B artist and model Cassie. At the beginning of the video, we see Brown sitting on his bed with his heart being seen through his shirt as he starts to sing the first verse. The scene then changes to the street where we see load of paparazzi taking photos of Cassie and Chris standing there hoping she will notice him, but she does not so Chris walks away. The scene changes and Cassie walks into a shop where Chris is standing but he walks out singing which gets Cassie’s attention. Then they are both seen walking towards each other where they meet in the middle.
