Chris Brown has been a controversial figure throughout his career in music. He remains insanely popular despite this. He continues to churn out hit after hit.

Brown is still active and popular to this day. He can still sing just as well as he could as a young man. Fans don’t want to give up on such a huge talent.

That popularity has carried over to the world of social media. Chris Brown recently passed the 100 million follower mark on Instagram. He took to the site to make a post celebrating the achievement.


The post alone received over 600,000 likes in one day. His artistic ambitions seem to be matching his popularity. Chris Brown is working on a new album that is expected to come along with a short film.

The perplexing case of the popularity of Chris Brown shows that talent often supersedes morals when fans decide who they support. Brown’s history of domestic violence hasn’t affected his popularity at all. One must wonder how things would be if he was just a little less talented.
