Chris Brown Talks Double Album, ‘X’ Collaborations with DJ Skee

DJ Skee and Chris Brown

Chris Brown took over L.A. Live during AXS TV’s “SKEE Live” last night. In addition to performing three songs, the R&B singer shared details about his upcoming album X.

He hopes to release a double album with 20 songs (10 songs on each), pending approval from his label RCA Records.

He has assembled a star-studded lineup including Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Rihanna, Diplo, Timbaland, Sevyn Streeter, and Kendrick Lamar, who appears on “Autumn Leaves.”

“He actually wrote from the mindset of a critic, if a critic was sitting there talking to me, and then he’s coaching me through it,” said Brown, who has already shot part of the video in Hawaii. “It’s amazing how lyrical he is and how he can put it together just by rapping.”

During the interview, he also spoke about the negative media attention, his graffiti art, and his position in music.

“I actually love being the underdog because I get a chance to prove somebody wrong every day,” said Breezy.

    “Underdog”? The only reason you’re an “underdog” is because you constantly make bad decisions in public. It’s okay to have moments and act out, we’re all human but the way you display it is the reason you’re a has been.

    @Raven-Symone, A Raven-Symon fan talking about has been? The only time Raven is relevant is on Instagram. His famous of course his acting moments are going to be made public that’s not his fault. If its not for TMZ nobody would’ve known anything.

    @channel_ROMAN, raven is riches black actress in Hollywood under 40 she doesn’t have to do anything. she’s already done it. Unlike these thirty acts like Chris and nicki who have to constantly be seen because if they go one day without being on a blog they’ll be forgotten.

    @Deejay, Funny you say that because FAME was supposed to be a double album called FAME and Fortune. Then RCA said just release Fortune six months later onstead, which didnt happen either. So whos copying who? Oh like I thought. White boys are so unoriginal when it comes to music, all they do is copy what blacks do and bexause whites push them on tv, it sells more

    @Bruce, lmao you just reached so far with that stupid ass comment. I don’t wanna hear anything about what chris brown was “supposed” to do. This has nothing to do with white/black skin color either you racist fucktard. Call me when that irrelevant ass Chris Clown sells 1million in the first week like JT did effortlessly, then we can talk. Until then, sit down right beside Fist Brown(the underdog).

    A damn target? LMFAO. No one is still penalizing him for the Rihanna attack, it’s all the other poor decisions he’s made. Drake, Frank Ocean, Jenny Johnson, etc.

    @Raj, lol what did he do to drake? If I recall right he was the one actually cracked with a bottle. They never even fought at all.

    I agree his responses could be handled way better but to be fair he didn’t start anything with any of these people lol. He complimented Frank Ocean n he took it as an insult and came for him. Jenny Johnson harassed the guy for 2 years straight before he said anything to him. It’s easy to say he should just shut up and take it but unfortunately for him, he just doesn’t seem like that’s his thing.

    Not excusing him because he does need to tone it down a lot but let’s not just act like he randomly attacks people.

    I think it’s safe to say that the general public is no longer checking for this album. Good luck to him though.

    Why complain? Maybe his decision was affected by Justin Timberlake, maybe not? After all he wanted F.A.M.E. and Fortune to be one double album, so it’s not like it’s a new idea for him.
    Hopefully they’ll let him do it that way, if not, it’s still gonna be around 20 songs with a deluxe edition.

    Yo seriously? This guy has potential to be one of the great ones. He just needs to stop working with so many ordinary artists. You’re only as good as the company that you keep
