Brown has also talked about the positive and negative feedback Graffiti has received.
"My fans [have] given me a great response on the album," Brown said in an interview. "They actually said they love it. They tell me what songs they love. Like 99 percent of the comments are all positive about the album. I didn't get the way they looked at my album. I just felt like there was a little bit of hate because of the situation and not because of the music. But we're gonna keep it moving." (MTV)
