Chris Brown May Retire After 'X'

Chris Brown has announced plans to retire after the release of his next album, X. The R&B singer revealed his intentions to fans on Twitter in response to the massive amount of criticism he has faced in recent years.

"Don't worry, mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album," wrote the performer in a tweet that has since been deleted. "Being famous is amazing when it's for [your] music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when I was 18. I'm cool [and] over it!"

The mistake he refers to was his assault on girlfriend and pop singer Rihanna back in 2009. Since then, Brown has become a headline staple for his run-ins with the law. Just last week, he turned himself in to authorities after his probation was revoked over a hit-and-run incident he was involved in earlier in the year. He spent less than an hour in jail before being released without bail, but he's expected to return to court later this week.

Only time will tell if Brown's "retirement" will stick. Musicians often un-retire when inspiration strikes. But his Twitter page has taken a somber, reflective tone as of late. On the other hand, this could be a not-so-subtle attempt to drum up publicity for his LP.

Chris' sixth studio album will be released Aug. 20. The project, which strays from his usual house-pop sound, will feature collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and late singer Aaliyah.
