Chris Brown has changed the release date for his forthcoming third studio album "Graffiti", moving it from December 15 to a week earlier. "Good NEWS: my album date has changed.. December 8. Graffiti. If u love me get it twice and if u hate me still get it," he wrote on Twitter.
The first and second singles from the forthcoming effort have come out. In the first one "I Can Transform Ya", Chris collaborates with Lil Wayne and Swizz Beatz. Meanwhile, he chooses to go solo in the second single "Crawl" but brings fellow singer Cassie for its music video.
Recently, Chris has also hit studio with Trey Songz. They recorded a duet track with the help from powerhouse producer Polow da Don. "He put this beat on, we started playing around with a crazy concept - just having fun for real," Trey told MTV. Since it was meant just for fun, he was unsure whether it will make it to the "Graffiti" album. He said, "When I tell you I came by last minute and we cut it real quick - very quick. He's keeping it. It's gonna be a great look."
Starting from date 14 this month, Chris Brown will embark on a "Fan Appreciation" tour. Beside aimed to acknowledge and thank fans for their ongoing support, the gig is also meant to support the new album and raise funds for non-profit organizations. He will make one last stop on December 15 at Nokia Theater in New York City.
