Breezy does it again, well and truly reestablishing himself back in the r&b genre after his self-imposed exile. Love him or loathe him, Chris Brown provokes a reaction from the public, and there is no doubting his ability to produce catchy songs either flying solo or in collaboration with other stars of the hip-hop world.
Breezy slows things right down for this number, showing he can constantly reinvent himself and evolve as an artist. The video for this track is also emotive, and is his way of replying to the haters who are unable to forgive him for his legal troubles.
Hats off to the "young mike Jackson" for his resilience and innovative style. "Don't judge me" is a ballad of epic proportions, with the silky, sumptuous vocals we've come to expect from Chris. Recommended.
