Things have been looking up for Chris Brown recently. The R&B crooner’s new album, ‘X,’ has been climbing the charts and now he’s the latest artist to enter The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame this week.

Brown scored the victory with his song ‘Autumn Leaves.’ The track features Kendrick Lamar, who speeds through his verse in a breathy and lighter voice. The crooner sings about a relationship that isn’t working out. Using natural metaphors in his lyrics, he sounds emotional over the synthy R&B melody.

“I’ve been bleeding in your silence / I feel safer in your violence / I hold on like leaves and fall to what is left / Before I sleep I talk to God / He must be mad with me, it’s coming / I’m confused who’ll I’ll spend my forever with,” Brown sings on the second verse.

The journey to this title started a month ago when Breezy’s ‘Autumn Leaves’ went up against August Alsina’s ‘No Love (Remix).’ He then battled Eric Bellinger’s ‘Awkward,’ squeezing by the competition and remaining victorious.

Estelle’s ‘Something Good’ was his next competition, in which he breezed by with over three-quarters of the vote. And in last week’s battle, Brown battled fellow ‘New Flame’ collaborator Usher for the title. But just like the others, the Viriginia native was able to leave him in the dust.
