Many of us were debating about how strong Chris Brown's influence has been over the years this weekend. Justin Bieber sparked up a discussion when he claimed that Breezy is a combination of Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur. After Biebs got some heat for praising the controversial star, people like The Game were quick to speak up, defending the Virginia-bred R&B singer. It's insane to think that after accomplishing so much in the last decade, Chris Brown is only turning 30-years-old. The man has contributed so much to music and the surrounding culture, influencing the sounds of others and continually impressing us by adding to his already-stellar repertoire. Although his decision to include thirty songs on his upcoming Indigo album is questionable after the response from his last body of work, it also makes perfect sense considering the artist's recent birthday.

This weekend, Chris Brown celebrated his birthday party with a good number of his celebrity friends, hitting the dirty thirty in style. Although Breezy was rumoured to have been spending his late nights with a new woman, his old flame Ammika Harris popped back into the picture to remind us all she's still feeling the kid. The social media personality wished her man a happy birthday, posting a few shots with Chris and throwing a quick jab in the process. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SCHATZ," she wrote. "Dirty 30 huh, handsome old man." She quickly shot back her joke by reminding the singer that 30 isn't old and that he's still got lots of time left to share his magic with the world.

Happy birthday, Chris! All the best in the upcoming year.
