Chris Brown Drops Diplo-Produced 'X' Title Track


Chris Brown

With Chris Brown's long-delayed X album dropping Sept. 16, the R&B star just revealed the title track to his upcoming sixth album.

"X" -- produced by Billboard's current cover star Diplo -- finds Breezy in decidedly EDM territory. Although his voice is restrained and silky for most of the song, he gruffly shouts, "I swear to GOD I'm moving on" right before the bass drop. Listen to it below. Aside from Chris Brown, Diplo is also working with Usher and Madonna on upcoming music.

Telling Billboard about one of his upcoming Madge collabos, Diplo says, "That song is on like version 20. It went from a piano ballad to a 'Turn Down for What'-style song, which I didn’t like. Now it’s somewhere in the middle, which is a more pop record."
