Singer Reveals Album Art For His Fifth Full-Length

"F.A.M.E." worked out pretty well for Chris Brown's career, and this spring, the R&B star will offer fans his "Fortune." Brown's fifth full-length will be released on May 8 through RCA Records, less than 14 months after "F.A.M.E." debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

"Fortune" was previewed by first single "Turn Up The Music," which debuted at No. 10 on last week's Hot 100 and slipped to No. 19 on the chart this week. According to a press release, "Fortune" will be released in both standard and deluxe editions, and both are available for pre-order on April 10.

The album announcement kicks March off for Brown after a hectic February for the singer: he performed at the Grammys and collected the Best R&B Album award for "F.A.M.E." before hopping on two controversial remixes with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown then unleashed the music video for "Turn Up The Music" -- his directorial debut -- before delivering a surprise performance alongside Pitbull and Ne-Yo at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night.

"I hope this album shows growth and positivity to all my fans," Brown wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night, "and will inspire them to live life to the fullest!!! #FORTUNE"
