Chris Brown remains one of R&B’s biggest stars, but he has yet to get his star.
Taking to Instagram, the superstar singer questioned whether he has accomplished enough in his 17-year career to warrant a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“Do you think I’ve done enough to get a Hollywood star?” he asked his 118 million followers.
The response was overwhelming, with many fans surprised that he has yet to be cemented into the Walk of Fame. “Chris Brown definitely deserves a Hollywood star, that isn’t even a debate,” tweeted one person.
Chris Brown took to his Instagram Stories on Wednesday (August 17) to ask, “Do you think I’ve done enough to get a Hollywood star?” Chris is asking about the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which features some of the most legendary figures in entertainment.The performers inducted this year include Ashanti, DJ Khaled, Avril Lavigne, Los Huracanes Del Norte, Martha Reeves, and Nipsey Hussle, who received his star on Monday (August 15). Nipsey got his honor on what would’ve been his 37th birthday,
And his fiancée, actress Lauren London, told the crowd, “I think I speak for the entire city of LA when I say that we’ve always known Hussle was destined for greatness. This moment only amplifies this for us. Nip would’ve been honored by this moment.”
Earlier this month, Tory Lanez gave Chris his flowers by gifting him with a custom diamond chain that crowned him the “King of Pop.” The “King of Pop” title has been bestowed upon Michael Jackson by many, which Chris addressed in an interview in June, as he told Big Boy, “My personal take on it is I wouldn’t even be breathing or even be able to sing a song if that man didn’t exist. I don’t know if they look at it as a Jordan-Kobe thing, but I couldn’t even look at it. He’s lightyears ahead. There is no competing with him.”
Chris certainly has the credentials to warrant a star. Since the release of his debut album in 2005, he has sold over 40 million albums worldwide and surpassed 10 billion audio streams. He has won more than 125 awards including a Grammy and has more Billboard Hot 100 entries since the start of his career than any contemporary male singer alive to date, with 160 consecutive weeks charting on the Hot 100.
Chris is currently on his “One of Them Ones” tour with Lil Baby, which wraps at the end of this month in Las Vegas.
