CHRIS BROWN – Chris Brown has been in the music industry for ten years now and now the 24 year old is gearing up to release his latest album ‘X.’ Chris Brown explains the title of his upcoming album and title track as, “The song and the album title ‘X’ has a couple different meanings. It can refer to an ex-girlfriend, in terms of you always look forward to moving forward from. It’s also about being a reject in a sense. In me being myself, being able to grow up, me not always hanging around the right crowd or doing the right thing all the time—it’s me saying, ‘I’m over it. I’m past the bullsh– now.” Chris Brown’s latest single ‘Fine China’ is already a hit for the R&B star as it gives fans a taste of what to expect on his upcoming album.
