I agree that Chris Brown had pop appeal and had success in the pop charts going back to 2005, but he didn't made straight up pop music. I would say he made either R&B or R&B/Pop music if you get what I mean.
If you look at all his singles, I would say the first time he made a straight up pop song was Yeah 3x and that is obviously after all the backlash against him. He has since made Beautiful People and now Turn Up The Music which again are straight up pop songs... but prior to that I dont believe he "made pop music".
I think you could say Forever was straight pop... but I've never seen it as a straight up pop song.
From his discography the ones I would say people might debate are (all of which I would say are R&B/Pop):
Run It, Yo (Excuse Me Miss), With You, Crawl, She Aint You, Next To You.
I think similarly you could say the same thing with Usher (where imo his first straight up pop song was OMG)!
