Chris Brown Sets Final Release Date for 'X' Album


Chris Brown

Better 14 months late than never?

After more than a year of delays, Chris Brown announced his sixth album X will drop Sept. 16. Breezy's been dropping X singles since 2013, including the Lil Wayne collabo "Loyal" and the most recent single, "New Flame," featuring Usher and Rick Ross.

Brown teased a duet with Ariana Grande called "Don't Be Gone Too Long" back in April, but the full track has yet to come out -- and given Grande's chart heat, he shouldn't sit on it much longer.
