Chris Brown is one of the most important figures in contemporary R&B, and his skills have also earned him an indelible place in the worlds of pop as well as hip-hop. His reputation, however, has always been marred because of certain troubling extracurricular incidents, most notably his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. Since that incident, he’s been a frequent subject of unsavory media headlines, often to an extent that impedes upon the message he seeks to promote with his music. Yesterday, Brown announced that he’ll be telling his life story through a different medium, with an upcoming documentary titled “Welcome to My Life.”
Brown hasn’t shared many details on the documentary, though, along with the title, the film’s poster reads, “He went from being America’s sweetheart to public enemy number one,” so one can expect he will address the more controversial aspects of his life story. The film is directed by Andrew Sandler and produced by Riveting Entertainment.
