Chris Brown, 'X': Fall Music Preview 2013

Chris Brown

Release Date: November
Label: RCA

Brown dips back into the "F.A.M.E." (Diplo) and "Fortune" (Timbaland, Danja) producer wells for "X." He's already scored a top 10 hit on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with "Fine China." The album has also produced two other charting singles: "Don't Think They Know" featuring Aaliyah (which peaked at No. 29) and "Love More" featuring Nicki Minaj (which is now No. 13). An "X" sneak peek in March revealed a return to R&B. "I wanted to touch musically on Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Sam Cooke, and incorporate those influences with the new," Brown said.
