Chris Brown is pulling out the big guns for his sixth studio effort X. After featuring Aaliyah's vocals on his latest single "Don't Think They Know" and debuting a new track with Nicki Minaj at the 2013 BET Awards, the "Fine China" singer revealed Kendrick Lamar, Kelly Rowland, Wiz Khalifa and B.o.B. will also be owning some real estate on his next LP. The most surprising (or unsurprising) collaboration? A duet with his on-and-off-and-on-again pop star gal pal Rihanna but hey, ain't nobody's business... till the album drops.
One of his songwriting partners RoccStar said that the project will definitely paint a picture of Chris' emotional state. "Chris was like, 'We got to do some real shit this album," he told VIBE. "People need to feel exactly what I’m doing, it needs to be emotional and people need to be emotionally attached to this record,' so we just went in. All the singles that are coming get better from here."
