Chris Brown has officially marked the date of his upcoming album release, X, as July 16.
The singer made the announcement on Twitter Monday night (April 29), when he posted a link to his new song “I Can’t Win.” While he confirmed that the track did not make the final cut of the album, writing “Some s*** I felt like writing that’s not on the album,” the video itself confirms the July date.
In the moody new song, which details the ups and downs of a relationship, he croons, “She ain’t bluffing/ She gonna do it/ I think it’s time for me to face the music/ I couldn’t really give a damn about my pride.”
The track comes a month after the debut of his “Fine China” video, in which Brown similarly plays the misunderstood boyfriend. With on-and-off girlfriend Rihanna as inspiration, he seems to have plenty of fuel for new material.
