We already know Chris Brown can dance and sing, but did you know the young hitmaker is also a math whiz?
Breezy's upcoming X album title has a ton of meanings that you may need a pen and pad to figure out.
"I made it kinda numerical," Brown told MTV News last week, days ahead of the premiere of [article id="1704655"]"Fine China,"[/article] the first single and video from the upcoming LP. "X is a Roman numeral for 10; this also symbolizes 10 years of me being an artist. I started when I was 14."
Brown doesn't stop there. The number 10 — and, by extension, the Roman numeral X — not only represents the amount of the time he's spent in the business; Chris also connects the number to his birthday, May 5, 1989.
"X also means my birthday, 5/5/89. Five and five is 10; eight, nine, 10, so X," he said. "And then another quick one is 24. It's the 24th letter in the alphabet, and I'll be 24 when X comes out. That's kind of it in a nutshell."
On Monday, Brown debuted the album's first single, "Fine China," and he also opened up to MTV News about "Autumn Leaves," featuring Kendrick Lamar, and [article id="1704676"]"Put It Up"[/article] with Rihanna. "So we did 'Nobody's Business' for her album, and then I wrote a song, it's called 'Put It Up.' It's more of an R&B record," he said. "I wanted to do an R&B record with Rihanna because I didn't want it to be the same four-on-the-floor pop," he added, alluding to the sound on their previous duets like the remixes of "Birthday Cake" and "Turn Up the Music."
