Chris Brown is back! Of course, he never really went anywhere to begin with.
The singer's fifth studio album, "Fortune", hit shelves this morning with a round of positive reviews. The album features a more serious sound for the R&B superstar that strays away from his dance friendly songs of the past. Whether you love the new sound or hate the new vibe, the album is sure to make headlines for a few weeks after securing the top spot for iTunes album downloads!
Here are some of the upcoming music of the summer:
Christina Aguilera: The singer is finally moving out of her coaching chair on and back into the spotlight with a new single anticipated to be released in August. "The Voice" coach has been hard at work on a new album to follow up 2010's "Bionic" and reportedly plans on releasing a club friendly dance song before the end of the summer. She'll be back in her coaching chair in time for the reality show's fall debut.
Zac Brown Band: Country music fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Zac Brown's highly-anticipated third album, "Uncaged", which hits stores on July 10. The prolific band has ruled the country airwaves for the past few years with music from their 2010 album, "You Get What You Give".
Alanis Morissette: It has been more than a few years since she released "Jagged Little Pill", so it must be time for a comeback for the iconic star of the early part of the millennium. The new album, "Havoc and Bright Lights", promises to bring a grown-up Alanis back to our radios. We can't wait!
