Chris Brown, who is currently serving his community labor stint as part of his sentence for assaulting Rihanna in February, is making his way back to music scene as he has been confirmed to be among the line-ups for the upcoming Power 105.1's Powerhouse concert. The 20-year-old performer is slated to take the stage of the event on October 27.
There will be the likes of Fabolous, The-Dream, Trey Songz, Keri Hilson, Mario, Ginuwine and Day26 among the other tapped performers, the radio station announced on Wednesday, September 23. The Power 105.1's Powerhouse concert itself has been set to be held at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Chris Brown has been living a low-key life ever since his battery case was exposed. His upcoming performance at Power 105.1 Powerhouse show, thus, will mark his first major return to stage.
Speaking of his recruitment for the concert, an unnamed promoter says, "This is a pretty C-list lineup. Keri Hilson is good, Ginuwine has some following, but this is nothing like the lineup that would have surrounded him this time last year. Chris was the Michael Jackson heir apparent, he had huge endorsement deals. This isn't the sort of show you would have expected from him before he got in trouble."
Beside the planned concert, Chris is having a new album in the work. The effort, which will be his third, is titled "Graffiti". Of it, a representative for the R 'n' B singer has told MTV News that no release date has been set just yet. The album's first single, "Transformer," featuring Lil Wayne and produced by Swizz Beatz, is slated to drop soon.
