Leading the way to the May 8th release is the album’s infectious first single “Turn Up The Music,” written and produced by The Underdogs and Fuego.

On Sunday (2/26), Brown surprised fans when he joined Pitbull’s high energy NBA All-Star Game halftime show. The crowd took to their feet as Brown assisted on Pitbull’s “International Love” and segued into an exhilarating performance of “Turn Up The Music.”
With “Strip” heading towards the #1 spot at Urban radio, his Grammy Award winning album F.A.M.E. currently #2 on iTunes’ Top R&B/Soul Albums chart and four (4!!!!) Top 10 songs on iTunes’ Top R&B/Soul Songs charts (#1 – “Turn Up The Music,” #3 – “Strip,” #6 - “Look At Me Now” and #7 - “Beautiful People”), there’s no denying Chris Brown’s star power.
