Chris Brown, ‘Turn Up the Music’ – Song Review

Chris Brown Turn Up the MusicChris Brown revisits the electronic dance style of his 2010 hit ‘Yeah 3X’ on ‘Turn Up the Music,’ a brand new single from his upcoming ‘Fortune‘ album.

Brown has promised that ‘Fortune’ will incorporate dubstep, and while ‘Turn Up the Music’ doesn’t quite go that far, it presents a pulsating house-inspired beat with stuttering synths built for the dance floor.

Breezy sings, “Turn up the music cause the sun just came up / Turn up the music if they try to turn us down / Turn up the music cause I’m trying to hear the speakers blow / Turn up the music, fill your cup and drink it down,” followed by repeated chants of, “If you’re sexy and you know it put your hands up in the air.”

Clearly ‘Turn Up the Music’ isn’t going to blow anyone away from a lyrical perspective, and the music isn’t totally original. But as a song that’s meant to make bodies move in the club, its David Guetta-meets-LMFAO formula works.

‘Fortune’ will be released later this year, perhaps as early as March. Press play to get an early listen of ‘Turn Up the Music’ before it moves into heavy rotation on your favorite radio station.
