Other than his claim to the throne, Brown mentions what to look forward to with the follow-up to OLD, the album.

“It’s probably going to be a shorter release than normal because I’m trying to glance perfection with this one. With previous projects I had to branch out and show my range. But with this one, I feel like people know what I can do and what I’m capable of, so now it’s just time for me to show that I can make perfect.”

* Huge fan of Danny’s – HUGE – but I’m not too sure I would give him the best EVER. His fast-to-slow pace at any moment, word usage and uniqueness put him in a category with some of the greats, but he’s going to have to show me, “ever” on this upcoming album.
