If you are going to base your review on the album title, you would think that this is a confessional album.  Royalty is the name of her daughter and naming the album to her listeners expect thoughts on why he did not marry his daughter’s mother or what his deepest thoughts now that he is a father.  Every first time father felt confused the moment his first child is born.  If only for this idea, we can forgive the mess Chris Brown did in this album.

There is nothing confessional in this album except for lyrics that deal with his past which fans and other listeners already learned as these things were already tackled in his earlier albums.  One glaring mess in this record is that some songs like “Make Love” sounds like tracks for his daughter only to find out that these are another “fuck” songs.    Thus, some tracks ended up with good melodies but very unromantic and what you have are in your face lyrics.  Clearly, Chris Brown doesn’t know how to do romance and limit his views on love and romance on male chauvinism.

It is quite a downside considering that the record has above average production aspect, good hooks, and good melodies.  If only the lyrics in these album at least could have been reviewed and rewritten to make it more strikingly beautiful instead of hearing street lingo.

I rate this record 2.5 stars.  Hope he gets better in his next album.
