Chris Brown scored himself a number one album with the recently-released F.A.M.E., which sold 270,000 its first week out, only 5,000 fewer units than Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale debut.
But with the whole Good Morning America fiasco casting an entirely new cloud of menace around Brown, he still needs a pretty intense infusion of image rehab.
Enter Joe Jonas, whose squeaky-clean Disney image might be just the thing Brown needs to stay on the straight and narrow. The two spent some time in the studio over the weekend alongside producer Hit-Boy (crafter of bangers for Nicki Minaj and Pusha T), who tweeted the photo of the three of them. “@joejonas @HitBoy_SC @chrisbrown just did a smash! Whooo,” the producer wrote. And yes, The windows/”smash” correlation did occur to us, but sometimes we like to let these things slide.
The team-up will likely be appearing on the middle JoBro’s upcoming solo debut. Fans have already gotten a taste of Joe on his own with “Make It Right,” but considering the personnel involved, the new track promises to be a lot more hard-hitting. (That one you can have for free.)
Jonas told EW that his solo joint wouldn’t be “a cheesy pop record,” and he recently confessed to Details that he wanted to make music that could get played in a club. It appears as though he’s on his way.
Who do you think benefits most from the Brown/Jonas tag-team? Does Joe pick up some street cred or does CB re-earn the trust of teen girls everywhere? Pick your side in the comments below.
