Chris Brown’s worst day is behind him. Now he’s in limbo until August 5th.

That’s when Brown returns for official sentencing, although unofficially everyone knows what he’s getting: probation and work.

Until after August 5th, don’t expect Brown to give any interviews or say a word about the case. If he’s smart, he will stay deeply on the down low. His lawyers have certainly recommended that.

As for his career, one insider told me yesterday: “The record company has been very good so far. They’ve liked music they’ve heard from Chris’s new album. He’s a great talent.”

Whatever is decided, however Brown decides to make a public mea culpa, there shouldn’t be any new music from him in 2009. It’s time for a break, and the biggest image makeover in history.

  1. It has already been 6 months since Usher released his track Lil Freak and I still enjoy it! The sample fits perfectly with Usher’s sultry voice and the horns mix well with Nicki Minaj’s fierce rapping voice. Though this song didn’t do as well as OMG, Lil Freak is definitely the better song, probably the best one on the album.
