Get ready for Royalty. Chris Brown announced the impending release of his latest album a few days ago.
“#ROYALTY. Available December 18th. #BringRoyaltyHomeForTheHolidays,” Chris shared on Instagram. The singer also uploaded advertisement that featured him with his daughter, Royalty. The two were wearing red coats and Royalty was basking in the comfort of her father’s arms in the picture.
Chris has learned a lot since becoming a father. “I think with me, the main thing is probably patience,” says the star. “With me, I always want stuff done right now—’Let’s get it done, let’s get it done!’ but, you know, being able to be a father and, you know, seeing my daughter, you know, from those gradual stages, from crawling to walking to saying words now, you know, learning different things every day is kinda just teaching me patience.”
Parenthood has also taught him the value of nursery rhymes. “[Royalty] loves ‘Ring Around the Rosie,’ so she loves just to sing it and do the circle. When me and my mom ‘fall down,’ she just watches us fall down. She doesn’t fall down with us.”
He further explains, “Bedtime is crazy for me ’cause I always was like…trying to avoid bedtime when I was a kid, like, ‘No, Mom, just 15 more minutes, please!’ So I’ll keep like the kids’ channel on and turn it all the way low and turn all the lights out, and you know, I’ll lay in the bed with her and like rub her back until she actually falls asleep. But some nights, she’s not having it. Like, she just is totally energetic.”
Royalty is Chris Brown’s only child with Nia Guzman. Pre-order the singer’s upcoming album here.
