Fresh off the debut of his “Love More” video with Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown is already plotting his next move. The singer has announced plans to shoot a video for his collaboration with Kendrick Lamar.
Described as a “somber ballad,” “Autumn Leaves” will serve as the next release off his upcoming album X. “Directing next video ‘Autumn Leaves’ in Hawaii ft @kendricklamar,” tweeted Breezy, who will be in Honolulu this week to headline Power 104.3′s Power Bash.
“I wanted to—not rattle the hip-hop world, but have people appreciate [that choice] like, ‘I didn’t expect that, but dang, that’s dope,’” he told Rolling Stone. “I picked Kendrick because his subject matter as a lyricist is beyond everybody else’s. There’s a substance to what he says. It’s also fun to experience the ambitions and aspirations of a younger artist who’s just learning how the game works.”
The guest list for X also includes Wiz Khalifa, Kelly Rowland, and Brandy, with production from Polow Da Don, Timbaland, Pharrell, Drumma Boy, and Danja.
He also shared his desire to work with Beyoncé, tweeting a Vine video of her dancing on stage to “Bow Down.” “Beyonce,U might as well go ahead and do this collab. JAY might have a problem wit it but this Piru!” tweeted Brown.
