In line with his acting career, his career in music continued to thrive on with the work of sophomore album titled "Exclusive"(2007). First single "Wall to Wall" peaked at #22 in Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and continued to climb to the top.
Chris Brown really has come with a loud thud into the R&B music scene. Being extremely busy going around U.S. and across the globe to hold some shows, he has become one of the year's sensational acts in American music industry with his genuine style and creativity.
