#TBT 2006: Watch 16-Year-Old Chris Brown Handle Newfound Fame

Believe it or not, it's been over a decade since the release of Chris Brown's double platinum, self-titled debut LP. The album, deemed a classic by members of Team Breezy, gave us gems like "Say Goodbye," "Run It!" and "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)."

For this week's #TBT, we revisit the time when Brown greeted a studio of screaming fans and explained how he transitioned from Virginia to the big leagues.

Just 16 at the time, the R&B star found himself dealing with everyday teen issues like hanging at the mall and finishing homework—except, well, stardom became a factor.
