Chris Brown is hoping that he will be able to insert a DVD and some new tracks into the re-packaged edition of his second studio album.
Chris Brown has more plan going ahead for his 2007 album "Exclusive". A deluxe edition is prepared to hit the stores in a couple of months with a string of brand new tracks plus, possibly, a DVD that chronicles his U.S. tour to promote the album. One fresh joint titled "Forever" is also slated to be added into the set.
"It's very fortunate, my label wants me to repackage the album and release some new records," Brown explained. "I've been recording a lot of new records as well as having some songs that haven't been released yet that I can put on my repackaging. I might put my tour that I did in the States on my repackaging. I did a big tour in the States. I want to put that in the DVD part, add some of my videos on it."
"Forever", produced by Polow Da Don and co-written by Brown himself, in fact is made as the fourth single off the album, toppling the previous candidate, "Down". Brown recalled how he came up with the song, saying "We went into the studio, Polow gave me a beat, and I just started writing. His record is more of a European, techno, house-type feel. We wanted to give it that other side of crossover, and go a little bit to that pop realm. Hopefully, (I'll) be the Prince of Pop. I don't want to say I'm the King; I just hopefully can be the Prince of Pop."
Brown has been known to be a long time fan of Michael Jackson who is dubbed the King of Pop. Him naming himself the Prince of Pop, has led to another story that has been haunting both him and fellow R'n'B singer, Rihanna. Although keep on denying, they have been rumored dating and in a recent gig at London's O2 Brown added the fuel by saying "If I was the prince of R'n'B, then I would need a princess," before launching into a remix of Rihanna's hit single "Umbrella".
The original "Exclusive" was released in November 2007 and opened at #4 on U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling roughly 295,000 copies in its first week.
