Chris Brown drops ‘Nightmares’

The single & video feature Byron Messia

Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Chris Brown drops “Nightmares” featuring Byron Messia via RCA Records. Directed by Travis Colbert and creative direction by Brown himself, the visual was shot in different communities in Jamaica. Near the end of October, he shared his new track and video “Sensational” featuring Davido and Lojay, which came alongside a child.-directed visual that highlights those signature Brown dance moves and special effects. Brown shares these two recent tracks with fans ahead of his new album 11:11 which is set to be released November 11th via RCA Records.

These recent releases follow Brown’s summer single, “Summer Too Hot.” Directed by Christian Breslauer, the video showcases dancers from all of Brown’s past eras in a vibrant, playful way that asserts that love rules all. It is an ode to a passionate summer in Los Angeles where he is continuing to level up and find his groove, while also acknowledging the people who have led him to where he is.

Brown released his Grammy-nominated Breezy (Deluxe) album in July 2022 and the alternative Breezy – It’s Giving Christmas version in November 2022. The deluxe version added Anderson Paak and Davido to the already star-studded list of features from major artists that included H.E.R., Jack Harlow, Bryson Tiller and more. Throughout his career, Brown has continued to break records – even his own – and received a plethora of accolades. Chris Brown currently stands as the R&B singer with the most Hot 100 entries in Billboard history to date.

Over the past three years alone, he’s garnered nominations and wins from multiple award shows. “Go Crazy” won three Soul Train Awards in 2020 for Song of the Year, Best Collaboration and Best Dance Performance and garnered seven more nominations in 2021. He was also nominated for seven Billboard Music Awards, including Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Album and Top R&B Song (“Go Crazy”), four BET Awards including Video of the Year (“Go Crazy”) and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, two BET Hip-Hop Awards for Best Hip-Hop Video (“Go Crazy”) and Best Duo or Group, and two MTV Video Music Awards for Best R&B Song (for two songs – “Go Crazy” and “Come Through” with H.E.R.). Chris recently won Favorite Male R&B Artist at the 2022 American Music Awards and Best R&B/Soul Male Artist at the 2022 Soul Train Awards. This year he’s been nominated for 4 BET Awards for Album of the Year, Best Male R&B/Hip-Hop Artist, Best Collaboration (“Call Me Every Day” feat. Wizkid) and Video of the Year (“WE (Warm Embrace)”) and is currently nominated for an MTV VMA nomination (“Best R&B” with Chlöe).
