It's inexplicable and strange that Chris Brown and Tyga have such a good chemistry. In 2010, they scored the number one hit 'Deuces' off the mixtape that relaunched Chris Brown's career. Four years after, they hooked up on the addictive, and anthemic single 'Loyal'. Seeing that Chris Brown is the most exciting male pop artiste now, and Tyga being such a limited rapper, it's kind of hard to fathom why they create hits with ease.
Maybe is their love for weed, money, women and fast cars, which is all they rap and sing about on the LP. Exploiting their chemistry to the fullest, the two acts construct an album solely dedicated to the trappings of fast life. If this album is to be recreated in a painting, it would be a graffiti painting of Chris Brown, Tyga in a tricked out Lamborghini groping naked women, smoking marijuana and dollar bills hanging out of their pockets.
It's a hedonistic project primarily made up of the prevalent Hip Pop sound out now, synth driven night life instrumentals. The album is one directional, and hardly has any introspective moments or epiphanies. Chris Brown's dynamism and talent helps cover up the album's lack of diversity; his rapping almost at par with his singing.
With the success of 'Ayo', Chris Brown and Tyga have extended their run of hits. For our generation, they are our Jay Z and R Kelly. Fan Of A Fan: The Album is an album that unabashedly focuses on the pleasures the world has to offer, basking in the thrill of the night, with little worries about the morning after.
