Singer Chris Brown continues to feel the fallout in light of his 2009 arrest for viciously assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna. It seems listeners still aren't rallying behind Brown and the R&B singer (whose single "Forever" was immortalized in the viral YouTube "Wedding Dance" video, and again on The Office), has decided to beg for help. Brown, 20, recorded a plea on the online open forum SayNow.com, begging fans to "bring me back."
Brown also said in the message, "A lot of radio stations aren't playing my records. They are not being that supportive and I wouldn’t expect them to." Brown also promised fans he is a "better man" and urged that without getting him back on the radio, he'll no longer be relevant.
In December of last year, Brown was livid that stores refused to carry his latest album, Grafitti. In a hostile display of disappointment, he twittered (from his now-suspended account), "the industry can kiss my ass. WTF… yeah i said it and i aint retracting s–--"
While Brown has made an apology regarding his assault on Rihanna, and claimed he "never had" anger issues, radio stations and listeners still aren't quite ready to forgive and forget. MTV reported that soon after details of the assault, radio stations were dropping Brown's songs due to "listener criticism."
