Chris Brown is set to release his new album Breezy on Friday (June 24) followed by a co-headlining tour with Lil Baby starting in July. During a recent interview with Big Boy, the singer explained how he still gets nervous about performing despite the amount of experience he’s had on stage over the years.
“Man, that’s gonna be fun,” he said. “I still get nervous. I’m anxious about it, I have sleepless nights. I’m thinking of ideas. Because it’s the excitement, it’s adrenaline, it’s like a give and take. If you don’t understand that… you know energy, you can feel energy.
“Like, when I get in work mode or thinking about it, I’m also just putting it in my mind, ‘How are the fans gonna perceive this?’ And say you know what, ‘I didn’t waste my money coming to this muthafucka. I actually had a good time,’ you know what I’m saying?”
He added, “So there’s a lot that goes into that. I just don’t plot it out and say, ‘Look, we have to do this.’ But it’s something internally that I work on.”
Chris Brown and Lil Baby are set to kick off their 27-date One of Them Ones Tour in Raleigh on July 15, with stops in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, New York City, Boston, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and many other big cities along the way, before coming to an end in Las Vegas on August 27.
Scheduled to arrive on Friday, Chris Brown’s 10th studio album is set to include features from the likes of Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, Anderson .Paak, Jack Harlow, Fivio Foreign, EST Gee, Blxst, Yung Bleu, WizKid, H.E.R. and Ella Mai. His recent singles “WE (Warm Embrace)” and “Call Me Every Day” are expected to appear on the project.
