Thanksgiving has yet to come and go, but Chris Brown is getting his fans in the holiday spirit early this year – a move that just may get him condemned by Martha Stewart. Regardless, the recently Grammy-nominated artist shared his “It’s Giving Christmas” two-pack this weekend, and fans are seriously loving it.
On the titular track, the R&B artist finds himself restlessly counting down the days until he’s able to see his lover again. “No matter all the riches or poorest / We’re all here as one / Christmas is giving / Now we’re all here for love,” he sings on the chorus.
The second song, “No Time Like Christmas” is undeniably more of a sensual slow jam. Brown tantalizingly teases listeners about exchanging gifts between the sheets. “Open up, take it out / Anywhere you want, I’ll take you down,” the flirtatious lyrics go.
As Rated R&B notes, this isn’t the father of three’s first time dabbling in holiday releases. Previously, in December 2017, he shared Heartbreak on a Full Moon (Deluxe Edition): Cuffing Season – 12 Days of Christmas. Among the songs on the certainly successful project is his Ella Mai collaboration, “This X-Mas.”
A decade before that, Brown shared his rendition of Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas.” The song appears on the soundtrack of a holiday comedy of the same name. The vocalist starred in the film alongside Regina King, Idris Elba, and others in 2007.
Just last year, “This Christmas” earned a platinum certification from the RIAA after selling one million equivalent units.
