We’re just weeks away from the release of Chris Brown’s forthcoming album X July 16 and today CB dropped the video for his second single, “Don’t Think They Know.” The song features vocals from Aaliyah, a booming beat and defiant lyrics about a relationship that only the people involved can understand. The video focuses on a different message, however. Brown and his friends ride through Compton in the clip wearing red and blue and attempting to bring unity to the community for the sake of the children. And, of course, there are some pretty nice dance moves scattered throughout the clip. Continue reading
I’m not sure if Christopher has ill intent with this new Aaliyah feature, but it knocks. Chris Brown samples Aaliyah’s vocals from “Don’t Think They Know” in the new X cut “They Don’t Know.” The teaser is low quality, with people screaming in the background, but it’s enough to get fans excited for what’s to come.

BET held a conference to announce this year’s BET Award nominees moments ago with Chris Brown, Tamar Braxton, Kendrick Lamar and Charlie Wilson announcing this year’s nominees. Drake scored a total of 12 nominations and Chris Brown was announced as one of this year’s performers. Breezy also announced that his new song features Aaliyah…
Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz scored 8 nomination each and Beyonce snagged a nod in the Best Female R&B/Pop Artist category just because. Brandy Norwood her album Two Eleven were ignored, though, which is a real tragedy.
The BET Awards will take place on June 30 and be hosted by Chris Tucker. Continue reading

Chris Brown dropped “I Can’t Win,” a track about a dysfunctional relationship today via twitter, but it was the accompanying message that’s sure to make fans excited. “‘X’July 16″ appeared on the screen of the video uploaded to Vimeo, indicating that Brown’s forthcoming album will be released in a mater of months. The song is definitely download worthy, but I can’t wait to hear what else Breezy has in store for us because I love “Fine China!”
X is Brown’s sixth studio album. Continue reading
When Chris Brown said he was returning to his R&B roots I didn’t really believe him, because let’s face it, he’s been on the dance craze for a while now.
Breezy released the video for “Fine China,” the lead single for his forthcoming album X today and it’s actually just what he said it would be. The song features a funky beat, MJ-ispired adlibs, soulful runs and falsetto, but with a youthful touch. The video shows Brown and a woman, I’m sure people will compare to Karrueche, running away from her controlling father.
So far so good.
UPDATE: “One take” version added. Continue reading
Chris Brown isn’t one for press, but the singer has been doing press these last few days in support of his sixth studio album. Breezy says he began recording X last month and will release it later this year. He says he’s staying away from cliche EDM this time, and taking the “Quincy Jones” route instead, focusing more on R&B and soul. So far Breezy has about 50 songs to choose from, but says Kendrick Lamar will be featured on the album. As for Rihanna, the two have recorded a song titled “Put It Up” that may make the cut as well.
The video for X’s first single, “Fine China” will debut on April 1.
If Christopher Brown really is going back to his old sound I couldn’t be happier.
DJ Afrojack, the man responsible for Ne-yo’s “Give Me Everything” is preparing to release his debut album this year, and Billboard exclusively debuted the lead single. “As Your Friend,” is another EDM song about dancing and friendship or something…i don’t know, really. There’s a lot of autotune and synths and I just can’t focus.
“I mean, this is exhausting.”
I’m interested in seeing what else will come from this project though. It could be interesting!!
