Chris Brown says a lot of things. Earlier this year he claimed a country album could be in his future. He also said he will retire from all social media. Months later, he proclaimed that that his next album will be his last.
While it remains to be seen if Brown’s upcoming album X will in fact be his last, he took to Twitter late last night (Sept. 30) to announce that his album will be released next month.

Originally slotted for a July 16th release, X features Brown’s latest collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B. and more, according to his tweet from July.
Despite his supposedly impending retirement statement, Brown told Charlotte radio station Power 98 (a Radio.com station) a couple months back that he will continue to make the music he wants moving forward.
“Music is for everyone,” he said. “When you put genres on music, you segregate it. I want to always be able to do any kind of music I want. When I get older I might want to do a country album. Next year, I might want to do all hip-hop album or alternative album. Just making sure that anything that goes down, showing my audience or showing people that have a creative mind that you can do anything you want, it’s just about believing and loving what you’re doing in a positive way.”
As far as his upcoming release, Brown touted that “some songs might change your life.”
