Took you long enough, Chris Brown. After several setbacks and a year spent in both rehab and jail, Chris Brown has finally realeased his sixth album, the ever-delayed yet anticipated album, “X.” Marking his 10 year mark in the music industry, “X” is sophisticated and myriadic, showcasing the extent of Brown’s talent and his intent to make his mark and stay in the game.

The title track, “X” is sensually delicate. Breezy discusses the end of a relationship and the will to hold onto that lover while trying to hold on. The beat is an R&B/dance fusion that gets you both pumped and forgetful. The uptempo keeps you happy while the lyrics are powerfully safe and as a whole, Breezy presents the track in a memorable fashion. The track makes you more receptive and anticipant for the rest of the album with it’s slinky hook & dance tempo.

The number four, “New Flame,” features Usher and Rick Ross and is a studio perfecto. With todays R&B that cites the 90’s R&B with a slight uptempo that matches Usher’s, Breezy articulates the unexpected romance found in a club of all places, a simple yet deep tempo enveloped with trap beats. Breezy declares newfound love & almost says that the lover he sought out will only be his. Usher intensifies the persuasion with his legendary vocals and Rick Ross adds the hip hop flare, all of which propels the song into the hearts of young girls and amateur heartthrobs alike. Subtle in tempo and magical in sound, the track is a favorite.

Skipping past noteworthy tracks such as the ever sexual number seven “Drown in It” featuting R. Kelly, the number nine “Stereoype” and number 16 “Body Shots” leaves you hungry for more of the album. The tracks are deeply sensual, very sexual, yet Breezy manages to completely satisfy on each and every track with his teen heartthrob voice and his ‘grown and sexy’ lyrics.

The album finishes with a homage to the classics with “Fine China,” a savvy and sexy track that draws inspiration from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Sam Cooke. A contemporary R&B track with a mesmerizing tempo and great vocals, creativity was at work here.

“X” was released on September 22 and following the success of 2012’s “F.A.M.E.,” shows Chris Brown’s growth of an artist, unlimited talent and potential.
