Chris Brown, Fortune cover


It ain't easy being Breezy these days.

Chris Brown is drowning in so much bad press—Rihanna redux, Twitter throwdowns, and, oh yeah, even more Twitter throwdowns—that you might have forgotten that the guy actually makes music.

So…he's here to remind you. The Grammy winner just unveiled the cover of his new album, and it's yours for the dissecting.

What's the lowdown?

The album, titled Fortune and out May 8, shows Breezy looking like quite the slick cad in a tailored blue suit, retro eyewear and a smothering whiff of 'tude. Did the guy happen to snatch Tom Ford's leftover threads from the similarly styled A Single Man perhaps?

Or maybe he fancies himself all Keanu Reeves Neo-ish: The curious typography of the album's title looks like a hybrid of Matrix-style hieroglyphics struggling dastardly hard not to look like closeted emoticons.

In the background: a smattering of foreign words and characters that, we're guessing, translate into "fortune."

The first single off the album is already out—that would be "Turn Up the Music," whose Rihanna-laden remix spurred loads of talk.

What do you think of Breezy's new album art, and will you snap up a copy of Fortune when it hits stores? Weigh in below!
