Album BackgroundEdit

Chris Brown started working on and recording tracks for the album a few weeks before the release of his seventh album, "Royalty" in late 2015.

He continued working on the album during 2016 and 2017, also during both tours, One Hell of a Nite Tour and The Party Tour. He also built a recording studio inside of his home to record several songs for the album.

Brown said about the album that he wanted to outdo expectations, explaining the concept for the album during an interview for Complex, saying: "I thought Heartbreak on a Full Moon was a depiction of what my soul wanted to say. It's funny because we're doing a double album. I've done so many records, but all of the records, to me, are personal favorites and I feel like it gets what I want to say across. It gives a vibe. You get nostalgia or you get a sense of individuality."

Chart PerformanceEdit

"Heartbreak on a Full Moon" debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, selling 25,000 copies and earning 68,000 album-equivalent units within three days.

The album was certified gold by the RIAA for combined sales and album-equivalent units of over 500,000 units in the United States.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Andy Kellman of Allmusic characterized "Heartbreak on a Full Moon" as an "artistically conservative" album, and stated that its length is a "scheme to exploit the 'consumption'-oriented data that drives chart placements".

Jenkins of Vulture.com said it is "one of the most ambitious albums of his era", with "60 minutes of forgettable tracks, but the rest is solid and way better than most of Chris Brown's past discography".

Scott Glaysher of HipHopDX called the album "incredibly long", praising the productions on songs like "Lost & Found", "This Way" and "Frustrated", but calling "monotonous" the singles "Pills & Automobiles", and "Questions".

Preezy of The Boombox described the album as "a statement project that will go down among the most ambitious albums of its time."

Zachary Hoskins of Slant Magazine said the songs were "largely unmemorable, blending together into a two-and-a-half-hour murk of mechanical beats and plaintive, occasionally AutoTuned vocals".
