At the age of 16, Chris Brown was the first male solo artist to release a single that went straight to No. 1 with his hit debut song “Run It” in 2005. After dating Rihanna in 2009, the prince of R&B became the center of controversy when news spread of his alleged abuse towards the songstress. As a result, the Grammy nominated singer was sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community service.

The 22-year-old revived his music career, releasing his fourth album, F.A.M.E., in 2011.
