A spokesperson says she is working on a new album titled "Black Roses," which could be released by the end of the year. "Several" major labels labels are interested in signing Brown, according to the spokesperson.
As previously reported, the artist has a development deal with MTV for a reality show titled "Foxy's Family," but the network has yet to set a premiere date.
