After a private listening session in his So-Cal studio, Chris Brown chatted with MTV about his forthcoming album, entitled X. In speaking with MTV, Chris Brown revealed not only the concept behind the title, but his collaborative track with Kendrick Lamar.
In opening up about what his album title means: “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 talks describes his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, the song is called “Autumn Leaves”: “If you’re in your car just riding, it’s perfect. It just feels like a weather record — an emotional record,” he said of the slowed-down selection with a bass line that sounds like a heartbeat. “I feel a certain way when I hear it.”
