Chris Brown's highly-anticipated X album has been given a new release date.
Breezy took to Twitter this afternoon to share with fans that his upcoming sixth studio album is now slated to drop on his 25th birthday, May 5, calling it his “best album yet.” The tweet also featured what looks to be a possible album cover.

Originally set to be released last summer, X has been pushed back a few times before. Since the announcement of the project, Brown has released three singles: “Fine China,” “Don’t Think They Know” featuring the late Aaliyah and “Love More” featuring Nicki Minaj. The singer also tweeted last year that X would be his “last album.”
X is expected to incorporate more R&B influences than his most recent dance-heavy albums, according to an interview with Billboard last year.
"I wanted to touch musically on Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Sam Cooke, and incorporate those influences with the new," he said.
Brown’s X will also feature production from Timabaland, Diplo, Danja and Drumma Boy.
