Christopher Maurice Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer/rapper. He exploded on the music scene when he was just 15 years old, scoring a number-one hit "Run It!" from his first self-titled album and is considered to be one of the singers to claim Music/MichaelJackson's "King of Pop" title. His HipHop-infused R&B style and dance moves made him a perfect teen heartthrob.

He scored a number-one hit on the U.S. R&B charts with ''Deuces'' in 2010 and scored a number one album called ''F.A.M.E.'' in 2011 on the Billboard 200 charts, for which he received a Grammy award win in 2012.

He is also known for assaulting his then-girlfriend Music/{{Rihanna}} in 2009, ''[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment and that's all we're going to say about that.]]''
