Apparently, everyone's just misunderstood Chris Brown these past three years, according to him, that is.
"Basically, I'm saying the negativity is in the past for me. I'm just all about positivity and moving forward, being able to X out the negativity and stay on a focused path," he says. "Now, instead of me being the temperamental guy that everyone thinks I am, I'm more about crafting that into my music, so when my fans hear it, they can feel it."
"Whether it's personal or life experiences—my girl, my exes, love in general, or just reality—I'm putting all that into this album," he adds. "That's the basis of what X is, and who Chris Brown is. The stuff I wanted to talk about, I found clever ways to add myself into the metaphors." (And talk about himself in the third person, apparently.)
The 23-year-old singer also wrote a song titled "Put It Up" for Rihanna and collaborated with her on the track. "It's still in the pot of songs we have to pick from," he says. "It may or may not make it [onto the album], but you know, because she's already on it, it's a strong possibility."
He also seems to address his alleged nightclub brawl with Drake in some of his lyrics. "You can start a fight, but I ain't fighting back/ I'm cool with it," he sings to the interviewer. "I simply came here to party/Why would I trip off the bullsh-t/ When I'm on the good sh-t?"
