In a recent interview, Chris Brown broke down the difference between R&B and hip-hop when it comes to “ghostwriting.”
As a singer and songwriter for multiple genres, Chris Brown knows a thing or two about ghostwriting.
While being interviewed on “Drink Champs,” he broke down the difference between R&B and hip-hop when it comes to ghostwriting:
“What are we listening to you for?” said Brown. The “No Guidance” artist was referring to rappers who use ghostwriters to tell false stories in their rap lyrics that were written by someone else.
Songwriters for other genres have existed for decades, but throughout the history of rap music, having someone write your lyrics has been looked down upon and many feel that rappers should be shunned for doing so.
Later, he unapologetically admitted to having many co-writers and fully welcomes them. During one comment referring to when he sings, he said:
“They can write it, but who’s gonna sing it like me?”
This was in reference to his known stage presence and vocals.
Dropping Heat Is A Breeze
It’s pretty clear that Chris Brown has no problem writing for either genre. He dropped his new album, Breezy, on June 24. This is the tenth studio album by the Virginia-born rapper.
The new project is also Chris’ first album since 2019’s Indigo. The 24-track album includes features from Lil Wayne, H.E.R., Wizkid, Jack Harlow, Bryson Tiller, Ella Mai, and more.
