Chris Brown Confirms Title Of Sixth Album, Kendrick Lamar Feature
R&B/Pop star Chris Brown has announced his sixth album. Though the release date is unknown, the Richmond, Virginia vet will title his 2012 Fortune album, X. The 23 year-old notorious figure’s upcoming album already has atleast one high-status Hip Hop guest, Kendrick Lamar.
The product of their collaboration, reportedly titled “Autumn Leaves” was described by Chris Breezy as “If you’re in your car just riding, it’s perfect. It just feels like a weather record—an emotional record. I feel a certain way when I hear it.” In an interview held by MTV, they reported the song to have a tempo inspired by a heartbeat. Production on the album has been confirmed by Diplo, as well as former Timbaland protege and fellow V.A. native Danja (f/k/a Danjahandz).
As for the general title, Chris says it takes on a number of meanings. “The song and the album title ‘X’ has a couple different meanings,” explained Brown.
“It can refer to an ex-girlfriend, in terms of you always look forward to moving forward from. 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 bullsh– now.’”
“Fortune” was a #1 debut for Chris Brown, selling about 135,000 copies upon its June, 2012 release. It was Brown’s second #1.
