Chris Brown Sets ‘X’ Release Date

Chris Brown

The wait is over. After several delays, Chris Brown has announced a release date for his long-awaited sixth album X.

The follow-up to 2012′s Fortune will arrive on May 5, which coincides with Brown’s 25th birthday.

X is by far my best album yet…. Setting the date for MAY 5,” tweeted Breezy.

The album has spawned the singles “Fine China,” the Aaliyah-assisted “Don’t Think They Know,” “Love More” with Nicki Minaj, and “Loyal” featuring Lil Wayne, French Montana, and Too $hort.

He has also collaborated with Kendrick Lamar (“Autumn Leaves”), Brandy, Kelly Rowland, Wiz Khalifa, and B.o.B., as well as producers 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 last year. “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.”

In addition to X, Chris and Tyga are working on their collaborative album Fan of a Fan 2, which is also expected to drop this summer.

    @meme, His recent output is clear testament to the validity of his statement. Shut your loose mouth and maybe try thinking before you type next time. I don’t understand how someone can be so quick to hate and yet so slow to evaluate.

    Hope he stays focus and promote that album…I hope next single is a slow tempo ballad, I heard many good songs on X-Files that were album material, some of his released singles are ok.

  13. from france

    Fine China, Don’t think they know, Loyal.. they all sound like classics..

    so yeah it’s going to be one of his best albums .

    LOYAL is my song of the moment
    can’t wait for him to come in France. He has to become more than “the rihanna ex” or the “badboy” in my country .his real songs (so hip/hop, rnb are only broadcast on the hip hop radios. Jason derulo is catching up with him here on the big radio station . It’s sad . He has to come to the big shows , promote ..
    I think he has to change his press attaché bc his team only send hin in american shows .
    it’s CHRIS BROWN!The king, the greatest performer of our generation. He deserves to be at an higher level

    Seriously, shouldn’t he be dealing with sobriety and being less angry for a long while? Rehab isn’t check in, check out, and go back to business as usual.
