Chris Brown is adding some star power to his sixth album. With just weeks to go until its release, the R&B superstar has revealed some of the big features.
The partial guest list for X includes Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Wiz Khalifa, and B.o.B, he announced to his fans on Twitter.
“New album features @NICKIMINAJ ,Kendrick , @rihanna, @KELLYROWLAND , @wizkhalifa ,@bobatl and more surprises to come,” tweeted Breezy.
He performed his Aaliyah-assisted single “Don’t Think They Know” and debuted his collaboration with Nicki, “Love More,” at the BET Awards last weekend.
Chris previously said that Kendrick would appear on the somber ballad “Autumn Leaves,” while he recorded an R&B duet with Rihanna called “Put It Up.”
X includes production from Timbaland, Diplo, Polow Da Don, Danja, Pharrell, and Drumma Boy.
“I tried to stay away from the Euro beats, and not go totally pop,” he toldRolling Stone. “Instead, I wanted to take the Quincy Jones approach. The record pays homage to the Stevie Wonders, the Michael Jacksons, the Sam Cookes. I wanted to put that classic essence of R&B and soul with the new age of music now.”
