Don't Judge Me

Album: Fortune (2012)
Charted: 42 67


  • Brown addresses potential paramours on this Messengers produced ballad, in which asks them not to judge him by his chequered past but to, "take me as I am." Later on he admits, "I won't deny what they're saying. Because most of it is true."
  • The song is one of several tracks on Fortune that finds Brown returning to his rhythm-and-blues roots after releasing a series of Hip-Hop and EDM tunes. "It was important for me to go back to the basis of what people love me for, and that was my R&B," he explained to MTV News. "You know, the 'crooner' kind of record," he added with a smile. "So, on this album, you get to see the different textures within Chris Brown. But I think all in all, you get that R&B guy again, you get the love songs and the more intimate songs."
