The Artist: Chris Brown
Why A "Surprise Album" Would Work: Much like his ex Rihanna, Chris Brown has a legion of diehard fans who will flock to anything that he does. So even if he doesn't give them any warning about an album, they'll buy it simply off the strength of his name. Breezy's next album, X, also seems to be stuck in a little of a holding pattern right now. So why not breathe some new life into it by finishing it, getting it exactly how you want it, and then releasing it, Chris? People want it, so give it to them.
