(Newser) – A Chris Brown collaborator says the disgraced singer is focused on music despite facing felony assault charges, People reports. “He's predicting this will be his biggest album,” said songwriter Robert Allen of Brown’s upcoming effort, Graffiti. “He wants this to be his masterpiece.”

“Chris is trying different things and experimenting,” Allen continued. “We've been making things really eclectic. The direction of this album is really fun and free spirited. It's like a collage.” The songwriter was philosophical about Brown’s disappearance from the public eye after allegedly attacking Rihanna. “You want to go away so your audience can miss you some,” he said.
