Chris Brown Announces ‘X’ Release Date, Drops New Song ‘I Can’t Win’

X

July 16 is shaping up to be a big day for albums. In addition to Pusha T’s My Name Is My Name, Chris Brown has set a July 16 date for his sixth album X.

Breezy took to Twitter to make the announcement and surprised his fans by dropping a new song. On “I Can’t Win,” he sings about a relationship that has reached its breaking point.

“Tell me what did I do to make you hate me so much?/ Why you angry all the time?/ Why you don’t wanna ride for me?” he asks his girl.

But the song won’t appear on X. “Some shit I felt like writing that’s not on the album,” he explained.

Listen below.

    @susan, no they’re not saying the song isn’t raw with emotion. They’re saying that they hope releasing this song isn’t a gimmicky pr stunt to get people thinking there’s trouble in the relationship he has with Rihanna. Maybe it is, idk.

    Im a Fan but I just think Chris needs to focus just like the F.A.M.E era…this whole drama with Rihanna has people tired of the bullshit already, if its love…well its toxic for their work environment. I hope X doesnt flop…few artists use drama for PR and people see through that shit, CB must give this girl space & let her be controlled by her masters.

    @CBE, LOL! You act like you know what’s going on between them. Smh you sound foolish. Quit worrying about what Chris and Robyn are doing and buy his music.

    cass Reply:

    @CBE, That’s not my name. If you have a problem with what he is doing, don’t buy his stuff. Everyone got some bs going on in their life. It’s up to him to do better and to control what he can. Chris is a grown man and unlike some of TEAMBREEZY, I know he aint perfect. He phuck up at times, and it be his fault.

    @Joseph, How do you know if CB cheated on her, because you see females around him, they could be their for his cousin or friends. How do you know that Rihanna wasn’t the one who cheated, because Asap just did interviews last week, stating that he didn’t sleep with Rihanna. How do you know whats going on behind close doors with both of them. Stick with their music and not personal life.

    Ain’t that a bitch? The minute they break up he drops a single that maybe for Rihanna and implies that they’re threw! Maybe i’m reaching or not reaching enough idk! Love the song! It’s so weird that i love his sad/angry songs more than the happy ones! I guess that’s when he’s realer in his songs! Sounds like they’re on the verge of breaking up meaning it’s not official! Chris you have to make up your mind before you miss what could be a good/bad thing!

    Chris Brown is pure greatness when he lets his emotions do all the talking in his music. THIS is music that MOVES THE SPIRIT. I couldn’t stop listening to this last night because it moved something in me. I’m super hyped for his album now. If a non-album track can evoke this kind of emotion out of me, there’s no telling what X – the album is gonna do.

    If life is imitating art, then Chris Brown is going through more relationship woes. Breezy dropped his latest, “I Can’t Win,” Monday (April 29) night, and it sounds like an open letter to Rihanna.

    Amid rumors of another split, and his father slamming the relationship, the timing of “I Can’t Win” couldn’t be more suspicious — as are the lyrics, which in part address a woman who’s picked up a drinking habit. “Why don’t you wanna ride for me? Girl, we used to make love/When you called, I would follow/Now the only thing you love is a bottle/The only thing you got left is a shadow.”

    By the time he gets to the hook, Brown has stripped away the mystery and accepts that the relationship is coming to an end. “She ain’t bluffing,’ she gon’ do it/I think its time for me to face the music.”

    Although it sounds good enough to be a single, the mid-tempo track won’t appear on the 23-year-old’s forthcoming release. “Some s— I felt like writing that’s not on the album,” he tweeted yesterday.

    Brown and Rihanna seem to go their separate ways every week, and the latest alleged breakup has spilled over into the Twitterverse. The Virginia native stopped following his on-again, off-again love on Twitter, and started following ex girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, which is probably the last thing Rihanna needs right now. After a few canceled shows due to illness, the “Stay” singer is back on her Diamonds world tour, and opened up about not being able to “understand” love, during a stop in Anaheim, CA, earlier in the month. She hasn’t responded to “I Can’t Win,” but chances are, he got her attention.

    Aside from new music, Brown also announced the release date for X, which is due out July 16

    I don’t understand why you haters stay mad. Is it because Chris Brown is still here or the fact he runs through you all’s minds all day everyday? I like the song, but what makes some think he is talking bout Rihanna, it just can’t be a song? Either way, I liked it.
