Chris Brown drops ‘Summer Too Hot’ video

Rapper recently finished sold out UK/European tour

Grammy winning singer/songwriter Chris Brown shares his new music video for 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.

Last summer, Brown released his Breezy (Deluxe) album. The 33-track deluxe version adds Anderson .Paak and Davido to the already star-studded list of features from major artists that include H.E.R., Jack Harlow, Bryson Tiller and more. The original version of his 12th studio album, Breezy, which came out in the end of June, debuted at No. 2 on the R&B Albums and R&B/Hip Hop Albums charts and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking this as Chris Brown’s 11th album to chart in the top 10 on both the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip Hop Albums charts. Additionally, Brown currently stands as the R&B singer with the most Hot 100 entries in Billboard history to-date.

Over the past two and a half 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 for “Go Crazy,” four BET Awards including Video of the Year for “Go Crazy” and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist, two BET Hip Hop Awards for Best Hip Hop Video for “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 four BET Awards for Album of the Year, Best Male R&B/Hip Hop Artist, Best Collaboration for “Call Me Every Day” featuring Wizkid and Video of the Year for “WE (Warm Embrace),” and is currently nominated for an MTV VMA nomination for “Best R&B” with Chlöe.
