Even though Chris Brown is in jail, the rollout for his upcoming album is picking up.
On Monday (March 24), the singer released the video for his latest single, “Loyal,” featuring appearances and a verse each from Lil Wayne and Tyga. Brown is as nimble on his feet as ever, even in his work boots. Though he’s surrounded by beautiful women, he won’t let himself get too attached because, as he sings, “These hoes ain’t loyal.”
Filmed at Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles, the setting serves as constant promo for the song and its authors, as the backdrop wavers between storefront billboards donning brand names from Brown (“Black Pyramid”), Tunechi (“TRUKFIT”) and Tyga (“Last Kings”), as well as the song title itself. In addition, Usher, Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign join the singer.
The fourth official single from the upcoming X, when it was officially released in December,”Loyal” offered two versions: an “East Coast Version,” with Lil Wayne and French Montana; and a “West Coast Version,” which swapped Too $hort for French. Now, for the third incarnation, it’s a Young Money party, as Tyga joins Weezy.
On March 14, after being kicked out of an anger management treatment facility, Brown was arrested for violating his probation. Then, last week, he was sentenced to remain behind bars until at least April 23.
X is slated for a May 5 release. After the release of the album, he and Tyga have plans to link back up for Fan of a Fan 2, tentatively scheduled for a release later this year, as well.
