Brown Moves Up "Graffiti" Release Date

Fearing more bad press due to comments made by ex Rhianna, Chris Brown and company have decided to move up the release of Graffiti from December 15 making the album now available on December 8. Okay, truthfully, there was no reason given behind the moved release, however, one can only imagine that sooner is better than later considering Brown is currently in the forgiveness stage with both Rhianna and his fan base. More time can only lead to one thing, a chance to further slander Brown's name.

Brown's first single from Graffiti "I Can Transform Ya" was released in association with Transformers 2: Rise of The Fallen — this is evident in the song's lyrics. This collaboration, featuring Swizz Beats and Lil Wayne, didn't make a normal overplayed showing on 95.5 The Beat, but it has been on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop song charts for five consecutive weeks and currently holds the number 16 spot on the chart.

Check out Graffiti single "I Can Transform Ya" after the jump.

Also, Brown is performing for the second time since his ugly, bruising (pun intended) split with Rihanna his first performance being back in October headlining Power 105.1's concert in New Jersey on his own solo tour beginning November 14 in Houston, TX.

This tour, appropriately coined "fan appreciation," will be another move toward the massive apology Brown is trying to make for his previous relationship no-nos.  The tour will span 19 cities, including:

November 14: Houston, TX (House of Blues)
November 15: Dallas, TX (Palladium)
November 18: Los Angeles, CA (Avalon)
November 19: San Francisco, CA (The Fillmore)
November 22: Richmond, VA (Landmark)
November 25: Detroit, MI (Royal Oak)
November 26: Chicago, IL (House of Blues)
November 29: Ft. Lauderdale, FL (Revolution)
December 1: Orlando, FL (House of Blues)
December 2: Atlanta, GA (CenterStage)
December 4: Washington, D.C (Warner Theater)
December 5: Providence, RI (Lupo's)
December 6: Boston, MA (House of Blues)
December 11: Baltimore, MD (Sonar)
December 12: Wallingford, CT (Chevrolet Theater)
December 13: Philadelphia, PA (Electric Factory)

Glad to see Brown is back and still apologizing. Don't forget to check out Graffiti, available on December 8.
