Chris Brown Reveals Album, ‘X,’ Release Date: It Will ‘Tell His Story’ + Former Manager Leaking His Songs
[HollywoodLife] The 22-year-old singer has a lot to be excited about, as he just finished a 90-day stint in rehab, and even went back to spend more time after he was done to be sure he was on a positive track back.
His album, X, is finally coming out, we hope, in May. First it was supposed to be July. In August, he let his fans know that this could be the last album. Then in October, Chris announced that the album would be out in November.
“He’s more determined than ever to let X tell his story,” an insider close to the singer told HollywoodLife.comexclusively. “He knows that it’s do or die with this next album. Everybody has been waiting on this to drop for more than six months, and it’s been pushed back several times that people probably forgot all about it. He doesn’t want that.”
Chris Wants To Prove He’s Still Got It
He doesn’t want people to forget — instead, he plans to prove to them all that he’s only improved and he’s not going anywhere just yet.
“He’s an artist and he knows he’s got to come with it and hard with his new music,” the insider revealed. ”He knows that a lot of his fans are missing his music and he wants to prove to them and to himself that he’s still got it and hasn’t fallen off.”
The source added that Chris hopes this will “put him on the map, once again.”
[Rap-Up] Chris Brown is out of rehab and back to work. The R&B superstar is moving forward with his career after spending time in anger management.
According to TMZ, Brown has completed 90 days of live-in rehab at a Malibu facility, which was ordered by the judge in the Rihanna assault case.
The 24-year-old singer entered rehab on his own after being arrested for assaulting a man in D.C. in October.
Over the weekend, he was spotted at Universal CityWalk shooting a video for his latest single “Loyal” featuring Lil Wayne, French Montana, and Too $hort. He also announced a May 5 release date for his sixth album X.
But there’s already more drama brewing for Brown. On Sunday, he accused his former manager Tina Davis of leaking his music.
“My old manager is leaking my NEW album music and refuses to give me my back up hard drive to sabotage my album. That’s F’d up G!” wrote Breezy, who later deleted the tweet. “Snakes in the grass….. Just stay positive.”
Davis fired back on Twitter, writing, “@chrisbrown Trace it! Find out where it originated from…RCA can do that for you. Then send a defaming tweet out on who really did it.”
Davis had managed Chris since the beginning of his career. After parting ways earlier this year, he is currently being represented by Def Jam VP of A&R, Bu Thiam.
