Page 2 - Chris Brown Is Finally Releasing 'X,' But Is It Too Late?
Ariana Grande and Chris Brown recorded a duet together
Other than the singles, what are some other songs that are going to be considered for X? Chris Brown and Rihanna got together to record the track, 'Put It Up,' while Kendrick Lamar and Brown are together on 'Autumn Leaves.' One of the most hyped unconfirmed tracks is probably his duet with Ariana Grande, 'Don't Be Gone Too Long.' Originally suspected to be on Grande's upcoming album, My Everything, it's probably a safe bet that a song like that is going to be on at least somebody's album, and X is the obvious one here.
Even though Brown's hopes are that X is a massive success, does it have any chance of possibly bombing? The singles have been popular - sure - but people aren't given much choice when it comes to what's played on the radio. Basically, there are a whole lot of people that are never going to give Brown the time of day again, and popular singles don't equal high album sales. The constant delays can quickly kill hype, too. Despite his troubled past, he seems like he may be turning his life around. According to Associated Press, a judge has ordered less drug testing for Brown and denied the request for more community service for him as he's displayed good behavior since his prison release. Whether he'll keep that good behavior up is essential, as another run in with the law may be the nail in the coffin for Brown's comeback. He may not win back a majority of people, but if X is an album with a lot of great songs, it's a good start.
