The singer claimed he would retire after putting out the release of his supposedly-last album,X. The album originally set for November didn't surface in stores, and instead, Brown put out mixtape X Files to hold fans over.
This week, he announced a tentative release of the album and his collaboration with Tyga. At this time an exact date for either release of the albums hasn't been announced. According to kovideo, since 2012, Brown has been putting out singles from X, with the latest being "Wildcat." Prior to that, he released "Loyal," with East and West Coast versions available, "Nobody's Perfect," "Don't Think They Know," and "Love More," featuring Nicki Minaj.
It is still unclear if Brown has scrapped any of the music intended for the original release of "X". Despite announcement of his plans for retirement, Brown continuously put out music for the time being.
It can be remembered that Brown has several hits that topped the Billboard like: "No BS," originally recorded and featured on his mixtape, "In My Zone" (2010). The single, which hit No. 3 on February 5, 2011, No. 1 slot on the Hot 100 and No. 2 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in late 2007 with some help from T-Pain's synthesizer magic; "Strip's" long chart life -- it debuted in Nov. 2011 and is still on the charts as of June 2012; "Poppin," hit late in the album cycle, jumping to No. 5 on March 3, 2007; Take You Down at 6 that rose to No. 4 on June 7, 2008;"She Ain't You," which was No. 5 on June 18, 2011, gave Brown's fans a sneak peek at his electro-pop stylings and foreshadowed his deep dive into the genre; Big Sean's "My Last," which features CB, peaked at No. 4 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs the very same week Breezy's own "She Ain't You" peaked right below at No. 5; Run It, his debut single, featuring Dipset rapper Juelz Santana, became his first No. 1 on November 9, 2005 and claimed the top slot for two weeks; "Look At Me Now" is a hit, sonically, lyrically -- and of course, in terms of the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where it ruled for an amazing eight weeks beginning on April 2, 2011 and Deuces the song welcomed Breezy back to the No. 1 position on September 11, 2010 for the first time since his 2005 No. 1, "Run It!" and remained atop for nine weeks.
