    Chris Brown's upcoming sixth studio album, X, is due in August. The first single, "Fine China," was penned with producer Diplo. Rihanna reportedly has a cameo, which does not shock us, since they are cray cray in love and dating.

    "For the first single, I wanted to go more nostalgic, bring Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke to it, but also bring a new sound to what my audience and fans are listening to," Brown told MTV News. "For this album, I wanted to have the same mentality as I did with the first album — me being green, me not thinking I know what's hot and what's next, me just being Chris Brown. I think this will show my vocal ability a lot more. I've developed a falsetto, I can sing at a higher register, and I can elaborate more on my skill."

    Breezy also spoke about the album title, saying, "It can refer to an ex-girlfriend, in terms of you always look forward to moving forward from," he said. "It's also about being a reject in a sense. In me being myself, being able to grow up, me not always hanging around the right crowd or doing the right thing all the time — it's me saying, 'I'm over it. I'm past the bullshit now.'"

    Thanks for the illumination, Breezy!
