Today, May 5, is the 29th birthday of singer, dancer and rapper Chris Brown.

Born in Tappahannock, Va., Chris Brown has been rocking the world of R&B and hip-hop for over a decade. With an abundance of platinum LPs, a collaborative album with Tyga and music that has effortless appeal across the globe, it's safe to say Chris Brown is one of the best musicians of this generation.

Although he's an incredible talent, Breezy doesn't come without controversy. The 28-year-old spent his last birthday behind bars, has had a tumultuous relationship with two high-profile exes and has kept his name in the headlines for his social media antics.

But he's also embraced the good in his life thanks to his young daughter, Royalty. He named his 2015 album after his baby girl of the same name.

Last spring, C. Breezy embarked on his Party Tour with French Montana, O.T. Genasis, Fabolous and Kap G. A short while later, the dynamic crooner unveiled the tracklist for his new double-disc album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon. In a move that aligned perfectly with the title of his mammoth 40-track album, C. Breezy unleashed Heartbreak on a Full Moon on Halloween 2017.

Known primarily as a crooner, C. Breezy returned to show the rap world his mic skills in early 2018. Linking with Worcester, Mass. rapper Joyner Lucas, Brown teamed delivered some rapid fire bars on their collab, "Stranger Things." Just a short while later, his Heartbreak on a Full Moon LP was certified platinum.

Happy Birthday, Breezy!
