65th Annual Grammy Awards: 5 of Chris Brown’s Greatest Records So Far

The veteran musician is up for 'Best R&B Album' for his tenth studio album ‘Breezy.’

Veteran entertainer Chris Brown debuted in 2005 with the release of his single “Run It” featuring rapper Juelz Santana. The track was almost an instant hit ushering in a new r&b sound with hip-hop influences. Since then, Brown has released several major songs and broken industry records while collecting various accolades, including 21 Grammy nominations, one of which he won in 2012 for “Best R&B Album” for his fourth studio project F.R.A.M.E.

This year the “No Guidance” singer earned another nomination in the same category for his tenth studio album Breezy. Ahead of this year’s ceremony hosted by comedian and television host, Trevor Noah, check out some of Brown’s greatest career records.
