Chris Brown Confirms Kelly Rowland & Rihanna Collaborations On ‘X’

Published: Monday 1st Apr 2013 by Sam

‘X’ marks the spot for both Kelly Rowland and Rihanna.

The Pop-Urban divas have both been tapped to appear on Chris Brown‘s hotly anticipated new album.

Details after the jump…

Confirmation came courtesy of 23-year-old Brown during an interview with Fuse today to promote the project’s lead single ‘Fine China’.

 Peep  C-Breezy spill his collaborations – both on and off his album below…

On paper at least, ‘X’ gets more exciting by the day.

For, say what we will about his relationship with Rihanna, it’s hard to deny that the duo generally make solid music together — even if it’s apparently ‘Nobody’s Business’.

On the Kelly Rowland front, we’ve been awaiting this collabo for the longest! The Destiny’s Child alum is arguably one of R&B’s leading ladies at present and with Brown re-embracing the genre on this particular project, their pairing now seems more apt than ever.

Peep Chris and Kelly getting close on tour together below and be sure to keep it all the way locked on TGJ for the latest on ‘X’…

    As long as he is still planning to provide us with the ‘Classic R&B/Soul’ sound he promised us; ‘Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway etc’… I couldn’t care less who he’s featuring but WHY Rihanna? AGAIN…

    It better not be another ‘B’Day Cake/Nobody’s Business’ Part 2.

      We can dance if we want to
      We’ve got all your life and mine
      As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
      Everything’ll work out right
      I say, we can dance if we want to
      We can leave your friends behind
      Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance
      Well they’re no friends of mine

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

  3. Alex April 1, 2013

    YAAAAAS! That Kelly Rowland duet better be a single! I’VE BEEN WAITING MY ENTIRE LIFE! Kelly is my favourite artist ever, and Chris is my fav male artist. Now that they’ve joined forces, it only means a SMASH record in the making! Can’t wait for ‘X’ and ‘Talk A Good Game’ #RowlandStone #TeamBreezy

    • mob: I love my boy C Breezy f*ck you haters April 1, 2013

      I’m really getting excited for his new material. I’m loving FINE CHINA the song and video simply slay! I can’t wait to see what he has cooking with Kelly and JLO. He and Rihanna always seem to slay together so we know what that will sound like.

  4. HoneychildPlease April 1, 2013

    I can’t wait to hear his album!!! I’m so here for Chris!

  5. Bizo April 1, 2013

    Miss Kelly and Breezy, two of the hottest names in R&B are going
    To kill the colabo!! Can’t wait to hear what they been cooking up..

  6. Late April 1, 2013

    I really want Chris to win this time around. If he plays his cards right, this album will do great things for him and could see him musically back in the same place he was in when his first cd dropped…before all the dance music. This new song just sounds so retro/pure r&b, and I think this is what people really want from him right now.

  7. Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

    TBQFH Beyonce fans should kiss Kelly & Michealle’s ass because had it not been for Destiny Child sales

    beyonce Album sales would be just average

    as it stands Beyonce solo sales Dims in comparison to GAGA and Swifty

    Notably Billboard Did an article which asserted that with every successive beyonce album her sales has decloned

    poor dat!!!

    what Kinda Kang Does that?

    i f****** CANT

    • Vee April 1, 2013

      How do you know that? Where is your glass ball? I guess you could say the same about any other solo artist that’s been in a group then. Because there are a lot of them. And you are shading Beyonces albums sales, when Rihannas aint any better either honey.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013


        Beyonce is KING remember? a KING!!!!

        Kings do Swifty and Adele Numbers they dont do numbers in comparision to RIHANNA?

        im dying looooool 😀

      • Vee April 1, 2013

        I don’t call Beyonce king because of sales tbh. In fact I don’t call her King at all. But Beyonce is one of the greatest female performers of her generation its undeniable, so that’s why her fans call her that. And unlike Rihanna, what she lacks in sales, she can fall back on with talent.

      • Fresh Navi April 1, 2013

        I agree beyonce is a EXCELENT PERFORMER!

        She however has fell off there is no substance to her and she has become so conbtived

        In her attempts to keep up with rihanna and being jay-z wife shes lost who she really is.

        and thats with no shade at all its just the truth

        rihanna is a lazy performer with a steller discography and HUGE statistics to back her brand



        not saying that beyonce must smoke weed or whatever cause thats not what i meant about personality as it relates to rihanna


      • Vee April 1, 2013

        Well all you just said is totally subjective because I find Rihanna very pretentious as her person and her whole persona is part of her image and brand *Shrugs*. I dont relate to her all at 20, so its down to you and what you like get from an artist. Whereas people cant fathom Beyonce as a person because she is old school with her approach in many ways. I like her because she has her head screwed on with a business mind and can express herself however she wants in her music, but when do you ever hear anyone who has ever encountered say a bad word about her as a person? But that is the way I see it along with Beyonces and Rihannas stats (Rihannas stats don’t impress me besides her singles). And I don’t see how any of that has anything to do with your original comment in the first place.

  8. Bey a butterfly April 1, 2013

    Should be intresting, iv’e never pictuerd them working together. hopfully it’s go. And word up to Chris, just hear that fin china trake, sounds nice. I think you’ve got a winner. #Team Brezzy.

  9. riqueen April 1, 2013

  10. tina turner forever April 1, 2013

    I’m so tired of People talking s*** about Beyonce!

    Anyway I’m sooo excited to hear Chris and Kelly!! Ohhh this going to be amazing kelly has always spoke highly about chris and rihanna. So I know this collab will be out of respect. I can’t wait to have this record in my collection.

    I bet this will amazing I’m so happy about kelly always adds a flare to people songs..she gets on a song and takes it to a whole other level. So definitely has a Special. Presence about her and only a hater would deny that fact.

  11. DOSSOME April 1, 2013

    Ugh,3 features already confirmed in less than a week…Why Chris??If he really needs to get that Classic RnB/Soul feel,then he shouldn’t be collaborating with these mainstream acts…Try people like erykah badu,india arie,jill scott or solange if you MUST collaborate with other artists.I already love FINE CHINA & I sure don’t want to be disappointed

    • mob: I love my boy C Breezy f*ck you haters April 1, 2013

      Ooooo don’t make me drool……LOL I LOVE JILL SCOOT!

      We will see who is on what single. He is woking with them doesn’t mean the song will make the CD or even be a single!


    Kelly though? I’m not here for that gurl.
    He should collaborate with Keyshia Cole.

    • Melanie April 1, 2013

      You really want to hear keyshia cole raggedy voice ass on a chris brown record what hell lol!!

    • lyric lee April 1, 2013

  15. Cream April 1, 2013

    If you can’t get Beyonce lower your standers to Kelly. Chris brown is done and he look like he stank.

    • jason April 1, 2013

      First off kelly has always been the go to person for collaborations. Beyonce is a little to high on her horse. To collab with anyone that isn’t rocnation affiliated since when is kelly a low standard. Oh and who says chris wanted beyonce in the first place he is chris brown he can anybody he want to

      • jason April 1, 2013

        This isn’t 2003 anymore last time I checked Beyonce was the one being called washed up and done run the world vdeo has more dislikes than Friday by Rebecca Black. As does bowdown
        She called. Ot for stilling ideas for her countdown video and she hasn’t had number 1 song since single ladies. Top adele or lady ga ga Rihanna is known to make Better. Songs than her. And her album sales have decreased over years.

        So yea what where you saying?

  16. Lovebird April 1, 2013

    I miss Jake, thank the internet gods for Jared.

  17. Rosie April 1, 2013

    Hahaha. “Classic R&B” my ass. This will just be another generic run off the mill critically-panned Trey Songz mess.

  18. Oh hey April 1, 2013

    He should collaborate with JOJO, team breezy help me out!!!

  19. Oh hey April 1, 2013

    He should work with JoJo, I think they could make a hit together

  20. Lovebird April 1, 2013
