Billboard reports that Chris Brown is eyeing a September release for his sophomore Jive album, Exclusive. Brown, who has also written several songs this time around, says recording has been like “a family reunion.” Among the songwriter/producers working on tracks are several from his self-titled first outing—Bryan-Michael Cox, the Underdogs, Sean Garrett, and Scott Storch—as well as will.i.am.

Containing elements of rock and go-go (“Being from Virginia, I’ve got to go back to my go-go roots,” says Brown), several tracks recently previewed by Billboard exhibit an edgier, more mature tone that meshes well with Brown’s exuberant mix of R&B, hip-hop and pop. At deadline, a first single had yet to be chosen.
