Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Chris Brown announces that his highly-anticipated sixth studio album X will be released on September 16th via RCA Records. The album sees Brown teaming up with some of today’s hottest artists in R&B, hip-hop and pop, such as Usher, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Tyga, and more to be announced. The album will be available for pre-order at all digital service providers on August 19th.
With over one million in sales of “Loyal” featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga, Brown continues to prove his staying power as the single claimed the No. 1 spot on Mainstream R&B/Hip chart for nine weeks, eight weeks at the top of the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart and two weeks at No. 1 on the Rhythmic chart.
Brown’s latest track “New Flame” featuring Usher and Rick Ross is already Top 20 at both Urban and Rhythm radio and growing quickly. The Chris Brown-directed video for “New Flame” will premiere in a few weeks.
Coupled with previously released chart-topping hits “Love More” featuring Nicki Minaj, “Don’t Think They Know” featuring Aaliyah and “Fine China,” Brown has gained critical praise and excitement from the public for X. Regarding the new album, Brown has said, “I want everyone to take a journey with me through ‘X.’ We’re going to experience the highs and the lows, the love and the pain.”
X is the follow-up to Brown’s 2012 chart-topping album Fortune, which debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and earned Brown a Grammy nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
