The 'Turn Up The Music' star admits his upcoming record takes him back to his R&B roots.
Chris Brown has admitted that his highly anticipated new studio album 'Fortune' will show "the different textures" of himself as he promises a taste of his old R&B sound.
The 'Don't Wake Me Up' singer told MTV News that he felt it was important to focus on why people fell in love with him.
"Well for me it was important for me to go back to the bases of what people love me for – and that was my R&B," he confessed. "You know, that was the kind of 'crooner' records.
"On this album you get to see the different textures within Chris Brown, but all in all you get the R&B guy again."
Talking about the subject matter of some of his tracks on the album, he also revealed that he will be including romantic based songs.
"You get the love songs, the more intimate songs. Being 23 now I get a chance to be a more mature and adult but at the same time still cater to my younger audience," he continued.
He went on to admit that his R&B return is also intended to silence those critics who have labeled him simply as a dancer.

"That's what the avenue was and to really tap on my R&B and get the singing out. Everyone was like 'he's just a dancer', nah, I'm a singer."
He added: "I think people have a tendency to jump on clichés and jump on fads. I think for me, I don't attempt that or put myself in that box."
Chris' new record will be released on 2nd July.
Meanwhile, the singer is currently involved in an investigation concerning an apparent late night altercation with Drake.
During the morning of the alleged incident, the singer also spoke to MTV where he praised the Canadian for his rapping style.
