Chris Brown- Ancillary Adverts

This is a magazine promotional ad for Chris Browns album known as 'Graffiti' this was an album which was realsed when he was going through a lot in his personal life which affected him also in his professional life. This was known as Chris Browns come back album he wanted people to like him again. The colours which have been used are colours which are seen traditionally in hip hop promotional. The colour black tends to be associated with depression and death, I believe he used the colour black as a way of him expressing how people feel about his career people's view was that he would not be able to come back, and he was gone for good so in a sense his career was dead. I believe that the reason why the graffiti has been written with light in the background this is him saying to the world that their is hope for him he knows that he will be able to make a comeback even if people doubt him. Chris Brown has a image of his bare chest this is him saying this is who i am take it or leave it i feel like this is showing his vulnerable side but its also appealing to the female gaze. The product is a very simple pieces with artist that have been around for a long period of time they don't feel the need to create a big. This has given me a lot to think about for me when coming to create my own magazine adverts as this is a new artist i may need to find colour that still fit into the conventions of hip hop but needs to be eye catching so people are aware of him
