While Chris Brown‘s X promises to pay homage to soul greats (see: debut single “Fine China”), the R&B singer has also enlisted some of his own peers for the task. The album will feature fellow BET Awards winners Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna (!), plus Kelly Rowland, Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B. and “more surprises to come,” Brown said on July 4.
Brown’s X was due out July 16, but its release was pushed back even after several promotional appearances. As of now, Brown has yet to announce X’s new release date.
