Chris Brown Reveals ‘X’ Features

Chris Brown

Chris Brown is adding some star power to his sixth album. With just weeks to go until its release, the R&B superstar has revealed some of the big features.

The partial guest list for X includes Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Wiz Khalifa, and B.o.B, he announced to his fans on Twitter.

“New album features @NICKIMINAJ ,Kendrick , @rihanna, @KELLYROWLAND , @wizkhalifa ,@bobatl and more surprises to come,” tweeted Breezy.

He performed his Aaliyah-assisted single “Don’t Think They Know” and debuted his collaboration with Nicki, “Love More,” at the BET Awards last weekend.

Chris previously said that Kendrick would appear on the somber ballad “Autumn Leaves,” while he recorded an R&B duet with Rihanna called “Put It Up.”

X includes production from Timbaland, Diplo, Polow Da Don, Danja, Pharrell, and Drumma Boy.

“I tried to stay away from the Euro beats, and not go totally pop,” he told Rolling Stone. “Instead, I wanted to take the Quincy Jones approach. The record pays homage to the Stevie Wonders, the Michael Jacksons, the Sam Cookes. I wanted to put that classic essence of R&B and soul with the new age of music now.”

    @Dee, I am to I’m not even gone pay any of the tired haters below any attention… I’m glad he chose to add the Rihanna track also….. The only thing I would Pefer for Chris to do is push back the release date to August maybe because there needs to be more PrOMo before the release…. His new single has not even hit radio yet…. The album has so much potential with all the great artist features to throw it out with out the right promo would be insane…..

    I recommend a few late show performance

    A few video snippets for some songs he knows are not gonna be singles or maybe a 4 min clip with multiple songs kinda like Michael Jackson did with moonwalk showing more of the clean & attractive breezy rather the. The rugged look. He has been showing is lately… The video should have a few celeb cameos of acting….

    But I’m excited for the album breezy had never released a bad album yet maybe lack of sales but never a wack album…. I’ve enjoyed each one….

    @Cassidyboi, If you watched his interview he said they’ll be 10 videos dropping the same day as the album. So we get to see the visuals and hear the music all at once.

    @kam, So in other words nothing to give a second look at. A feature from a Vocalist like Alicia keys would have been nice, Dance feature from Ciara would have been exciting, Male R&B collaboration with Trey songz would be interesting, or a feature for a legend like Stevie Wonder would be appreciated but nope.

    Chris is CAPABLE of making a classic album without features. I wish he’s come out with something that sets himself apart from every other artist commercially.

    the album looks good i hope it can sell more units than fortune because that album was a FLOP AND THE ALL THE SONGS ON FORTUNE WERE JUST TERRIBLE EXPECT DON’T WAKE ME UP AND MIRAGE WITH NAS

    channel_ROMAN Reply:

    @AA, Honestly, listen to you guys talk about Fortune made me not even give it a listen. But, one bored day I decided to and it’s not bad. Out of the 22 songs off the album (including deluxe, UK, ireland and Japan editions) I downloaded 16. It’s more R&B than euro

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @AA, completely agree w/ you. since when have r-n-b/pop artists EVER had this many collabs on one album? it’s stupid & such a waste also it short changes his fans because there’s not enough chris. not to mention when you go see him in concert, if the songs are on the setlist the artist he collab’d w/ won’t be there. he is so much better than the sh*tty music & foolish behavior he’s displayed over the past couple of years. i hope he gets it together soon.

    [Reply]

    Wow Reply:

    @karamelkisses, he’s still trying to recover from the last 3 albums that flopped. He says he’s focusing on quality and blah blah blah but really he wants a platinum album and chart topping singles. You realize he hasn’t had a platinum album since Exclusive? You realize he hasn’t had a top 10 hit in years? It’s about sales and he thinks that these artists will sell because it’s clear he can’t sell on his own. What he should do is take a break, focus on developing his voice, and work on qualify music. He sings about the same stuff and he gets boring.

    Zack Reply:

    @Wow, i completly agree with you and also think there are way to many unnecessary features(Wiz, Kelly Rowland, Nicki Minaj), but Chris had some top 10′s the last years. Dont Wake Me Up, Look At Me Now, Yeah x3 etc. were top 10 hits.

    [Reply]

    jeanne Reply:

    @Wow, Rihanna and Nicki on a collabo add no value whatsoever. They have helped no one but themselves. The only people that buy their singles are caribbeans desperate to help their own no talent people be stars. These kind of buyers buy based solely on political reasons, and not quality of music. So he’ll be flopping again.

    And no one respects a disrespectful coward who doesnt have sense enough to speak up for himself during the skank rihanna trial and let her put all her lies out into the universe because he is a coward. Now he cant undo the damage and never will.

    [Reply]

    Wow Reply:

    @jeanne, I agree this certainly will flop. I was just pointing out that he thinks having all of these collabs will prevent him from flopping. Nicki Minaj is no longer a big seller so she won’t help and the song they did together for her project flopped. Wiz doesn’t move units nor does Kelly Rowaland. We see that the Aaliyah feature did nothing as that song peaked at #87 on the BB 100 which will surely fall next week. Based on Rihanna’s recent tweet, I don’t think the track they did together will make the cut. He just doesn’t have any selling power and his music is terrible.

    [Reply]

    jeanne Reply:

    @Wow, I wouldnt say he is terrible, but he makes business decisions based on what he believes is politically correct, and that is not a formula for success. He should make all efforts to distance himself from skank rihanna and never let her name cross his lips in public. Then people will know it is all about her after him, and the wind will shift in his favor. As long as he helps her use him for publicity she will.

    Ya’ll have to agree with me that Breezy should put Wayne in this one, Cuz they complete each other musically. I mean everytime you see Wayne and Chris on the Record is a certified #HIT

    A lot of you haters on this blog make me laugh. How is CB a flop in this day and age? Think about it…he has sold more records (singles and albums) in the last 2 years more than any black RnB male artist in the game. He is hard working!

    He has sold more internationally in the last 2yrs than…

    Usher
    Miguel
    Frank Ocean
    Trey
    Neyo
    Robyn Thicke

    So how the hell is he flo. You idiots talk nonsense and act like USA is the only place in the world to have success.

    @what, CB Fortune album outsold Miguel and every R & B artist except for Usher and Frank Ocean with all their promo. But CB singles Dont wake me up and turn up the music has outsold Miguel and Frank Ocean #1 songs for last year- Adorn and Think about you. CB Fame album and singles sold more than everyone except for Beyonce album, but CB singles outsold Beyonce in 2011.

    @susan, saying chris brown “outsold” beyonce in ANY context is a lie! beyonce’s release, 4, in 2011 was the best selling r&b album that year. she only officially released one single & that was run the world because the cd leaked 3 before the release. keep chris brown in his sh*tty music making lane. he’s been wack for the past 3-4 years … period. wack singles, wack vocals, wack performances; maybe he should go on a long vacation and get his mind & music right.

    @karamelkisses, Idiot! if you read the post and put your glasses on, you will see that she said “With the Exception of Beyoncé” Monkeyman and Susan’s comments are 100% dead on. Chris Brown, whether you like him or hate him has practically outsold every other artist in album and record sales including Usher, Trey, Frank Ocean etc. You people need to stop posting B.S. and get your facts straight. Hating on Chris Brown does not detract from the fact that CB is still one of the hottest R&B artist around! Don’t have to like him, but at least post with intelligence from facts not your stupid emotions!

    This piece of sh8t negro pulled Ciara into his rihanna mess when she did that sexy number with him on BET years ago that made his act memorable, and still he has not thanked her like he made sure to do with nicki minaj who added nothing to his performance, nor has he apologized for bringing her into his mess with his crazy girlfriend skank rihanna, and he did nothing to support Ciara’s comeback.

    A coward who only does right under threat of violence, and bites the hand that helps him up will have his haters turn on him with a vengeance again, and this time they will gobble him up.

    2)HE HASN’T DONE NO PROMO WHATSOEVER
    3)RIHANNA IS SHADING HIS ARSE ON TWITTER SAYING SHE DOSENT EVEN WANT TO BE ON THE ABLBUM

    I have a theory: I’m going to wait until the album releases, and the music videos, and then watch the videos and listen to the music, and THEN critique it.

    And when I do, I’m going to critique it by how the layers in each song mix. Not by the features, not by Fortune, not by Exclusive, not by his personal life, by the MUSIC.

    I think it’s a better idea than what I’m seeing on this feed
