R&B’s favorite Snidely Whiplash impersonator and generally upsetting person Chris Brown took to Twitter last night to announce the release date of his upcoming album Xwhich hits retailers July 16. This is great news for Team Breezy, but not-so-great news for those of us who just don’t have the constitution for another round of endless promotional appearances characterized by empty contrition and mediocre music, the jaw-dropping circus of watching putatively intelligent and principled journalists congratulating him for not being a complete monster as he tweets smoke-hazy Instagrams with Rihanna that fill us with a queasy, portentous dread. Can’t wait.

The “Fine China” crooner also shared the link to a new track just for fans, tweeting, “Some shit I felt like writing that’s not on the album.” Sure!

That song is a clattering midtempo about a troubled relationship titled “I Can’t Win,” which is one of those awesomely self-pitying Chris Brown song titles like “Changed Man” that really just says it all. (Upcoming song titles include “Feel Sorry For Me” and “I Am Very Grounded & Humble Now, Fuck Haters.”)

Listen to the new song below.

This is all just the worst, right? Isn’t it? Okay, great. Just checking. Sound off in the comments, then let us know what you think on Facebook and Twitter

    “What did I do to make you hate me so much?” Well, first you almost beat a woman to death, tried to push her out a vehicle, and then you tattooed the image to you. That’s a start.

    The fact that I’m slightly bobbing my head to this song makes me feel the need to go to confession. Or take a shower.

    As an artist I love love love Breezy. Who are we to judge and obviously forgiveness has come from many different entities that have to do with that situation, don’t know him personally and neither does most ppl so get off of it already… damn.
