Preview The Deluxe Edition Of Chris Brown’s ‘Graffiti’

Chris Brown’s “Forever” was one of the best pop songs to emerge out of 2008, despite the flak it received for its Wrigley’s corporate tie-in. And so, setting all scandal aside–if that’s even possible—it’s nice to see (or hear, rather) there are what appear to be two obvious successors to synthy dance number “Forever” on Brown’s otherwise ballad-heavy Graffiti. They come in the forms of “I.Y.A” (or, “In Your Arms”) and “Pass Out.”

Catch a video clip of all the Graffiti Deluxe Edition album snippets (via Amazon France) below.

Other than the tracks that have already done the rounds (“I Can Transform Ya,” “Sing Like Me,” “Crawl”) or the ones mentioned above, Graffiti sounds like its going to be full of pop balladry (“So Cold”), a couple mid-tempo jams (like “Famous Girl”) and—well, basically more soaring ballads (“Lucky Me,” “Fallin’ Down”).

There’s also sexed-up number “Take My Time”—which contains the classy lines, “Girl, when you step all wet from out the shower, baby/ I want you to lay down/ Just stay naked/ Now I’m starin’ at you for hours”—and the guitar-driven toe-tapper “For Your Love.”

Hopefully some of the more upbeat tunes are slated for singles. Though at the rate Jive is tossing out songs to promote this album, it seems like anything goes.

Here’s the full tracklist for the deluxe edition of Chris Brown’s Graffiti, as posted on Amazon France:

1. “I Can Transform Ya” (featuring Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz)
2. “Sing Like Me”
3. “Crawl”

5. “What I Do” (featuring Plies)

8. “I.Y.A.”

10. “Wait” (featuring Trey Songz & Game)
11. “Lucky Me”
12. “Fallin’ Down”
13. “I’ll Go”
14. “Girlfriend” (featuring Lupe Fiasco)
15. “Gotta Be Your Man”
16. “For Your Love”
17. “I Need This”
18. “I Love U”
19. “Brown Skin Girl” (featuring Sean Paul)
20. “Chase Our Love”

    @nancy: WTF are you kidding the next mj? First he’d actually need to be able to sing worth 2 cent and #2 He’d need to be able todo real choreography that doesn’t involve “pop-lockin” or “crumpin” he is a joke nothing more than a pretty face, a complete Usher clone (and at least he can sing).

  • Devo

    sigh, i canceled my myspace account two years ago for a reason.

  • http://blog.newsok.com/staticblog StaticBlog

    I don’t understand what this has to do with Lady GaGa.

  • nancy

    @TotallyN2Musc chris is the next mj. if u dont like it kick rocks and kill ur self. no one in this world can do it better than cb. no one even mj said chris is the closet next to hi that was 2007, talk more of 09

  • http://mrmiddletown.blogspot.com/ TotallyN2Musc

    @nancy: I shouldn’t even waste my time replying to the ridiculousness that is what you just said, but I will cause Ive got some time to waste anyways.

    The very idea someone could think this guy is the next Michael Jackson is depressing but then again when “said person” is obviously nine years of age tops they don’t exactly know what music is anyways therefor I cant take them too seriously nevertheless you can take you overzealous maniacal fan-antics elsewhere.

  • ZOMBIEBOT-C37

    ZOMBIEBOT NOT SURE WHOSE SIDE TO TAKE ON THIS ONE. QUERY: WHO IS LESSER OF TWO EVILS? BORDERLINE ILLITERATE NANCY OR ZOMBIEBOT HATER TOTALLYN2MUSC/MIDDLETOWN.

    MORE INPUT NEEDED TO MAKE FINAL DECISION.

  • nancy

    @TotallyN2Musc no, no, no, u are the stupid one, am 20yrs old. u dont like chris but u, take time to comment on him, that is some groupie behaviour, can point to any one who could dance and sing like chris. chris is the next mj, dosent matter if u like it or not. his is comming back with full force so hop of his d**k

  • Pradajames

    Chris Brown hits women. That and the pose with a guitar he doesnt know how to play is enough for me to piss all over his record.

  • http://mrmiddletown.blogspot.com/ TotallyN2Musc

    @nancy: Nice to know that you “am 20yrs” sadly it doesn’t show in the slightest, I tend to actually “read” the things posted on this site including those about Chris Brown just because I don’t like him doesn’t mean Im blind to seeing him it has nothing todo with “groupie behavior” considering the general basis of my comment was directed at “you” in-particular.

  • nancy

    @ TotallyN2Musc no if u dont like chris brown skip the article on chrs brown it is simple as abc. i will not comment on the person i hate, that is just ignorance. live ya life and dont worry about chris thank you chld

  • http://mrmiddletown.blogspot.com/ TotallyN2Musc

    @nancy: And that is what separates the real 20 year old’s from the 9 year old’s and again I was commenting at “you”.

  • nancy

    @ TotallyN2Musc no u were looking at chris brown article, and snooping thru the comments to see my comment next time dont bother looking at his article so u could aviod my comment ok snoopy.

  • http://mrmiddletown.blogspot.com/ TotallyN2Musc

    @nancy: Ok nancy seriously? Grow up and if Chris Brown is truly the next Michael Jackson what criteria does one need to have to hold such a title obviously talent and sales have nothing todo with it what does that leave?

    This Post has 20+ comments and five of them are of me arguing back and forth with a 9 year old. I’m done here.

    Mr.Middletown

  • nancy

    @TotallyN2Musc yeah the criteria is talent he is a brillant dancer and singer, and sales his two previous album have more than 8 million in sales. eat that snoopy.

    It’s so sad to come back to see the site that Idolator has become. I bet if Maura were to return it would be her Bedford Falls/Pottersville moment.

  • nikkib

    I can’t wait for Chris new album he’s a very talented singer and dancer and indeed he may just be the next MJ.

  • http://www.idolator.com Chrianna Fan

    Im sure if i will buy CB’s album but will buy the singles like i can transform you, so cold and crawl.theres to many songs with too many techno and electronic sounds that over power his voice.dont get me wrong i am a CB fan but i love when CB sings his ballads.

  • Beaupreen

    @Chrianna Fan: well said about the “techno and electronic sounds that over power his voice” maybe mixing it up with more producers might have helped…

  • yhtak

    cant wait for Graffiti Dec 8th!!

    @pradajames just because chris made one mistake doesnt mean he beats women in general, please grow up comments like that only spell ignorance, and just for your information chris does know how to play the guitar, he has actually been learning some time ago and has already written songs using it but of course i dont expect for you or anyone to know that other than his fans who keep up with him and what he is doing musically

  • ZOMBIEBOT-C37

    ZOMBIEBOT CANNOT ADD ANYTHING HERE. POSTERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. ZOMBIEBOT SCARED FOR AMERICA’S FUTURE.

  • Jorge

    He is the next michael jackson, hands down

  • B-Peezy

    It is good to see Chris getting back on his feet, no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes yeah it is not right to hit a women but thats the past so lets move on, I can’t wait for his new album to come out the cb is the next MJ.

  • KeriBerri

    I heard it already and I can say I love it. What I don’t understand is why people who don’t like CB are spending time talking about him.

  • KANDISE

    ITS OKAY, HIS OTHERS ARE BETTER

  • Tasha

    I love CB, But great songs, Can’t wait to get the Album, Bestfriend buying it for me for Chrismas; Next mj for suree

  • R-busy

    Blah, few tracks are good, one exception that I love is the track Crawl, the video of it is awesome too. “I Can Transform Ya” is a ridiculous track, hate it.

  • Han7
