Chris Brown's New Album to Be Called "X"

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!
