Chris Brown Scores 'Mean Verse' from Nicki Minaj for 'X'
Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna aren’t the only stars set to appear on Chris Brown’s new album X. Nicki Minaj has just been added to the guest list.
After scoring a hit with “Right By My Side” off Nicki’s album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, the two have teamed up for another collaboration, this time for Chris’ upcoming sixth album.
The R&B singer shared the news with Team Breezy. “@NICKIMINAJ will be on the ALBUM. Just gave me a mean verse!!! Love Boo!” he tweeted.
Nicki teased her Barbz, adding, “The beat is stoooooooooooooooopid. Yall gon love it! ;)”
Chris previously revealed that Kendrick would appear on the somber ballad “Autumn Leaves,” while he recorded an R&B duet with Rihanna called “Put It Up.”
X is due this summer featuring production from Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Danja, Pharrell, and Drumma Boy. “I tried to stay away from the Euro beats, and not go totally pop,” Chris 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.”
