Chris Brown just dropped his aptly named 11th studio album 11:11 on Friday, Nov. 10 via Chris Brown Entertainment and RCA Records.
As the title suggests, the hip-hop star was originally set to release the album on Saturday (11/11, get it?) — but on Instagram, he announced in a short clip that “I’mma give [the album] to y’all a day early, album come out tomorrow.” He later wrote in the video caption that “the album was supposed to drop Saturday.. but we dropping early.”
He previously released singles “Summer Too Hot,” “Sensational” (featuring Davido and Lojay) and “Nightmares” (featuring Byron Messia) ahead of the album. “Summer Too Hot” hit No. 2 on Rhythmic Airplay, while “Sensational” hit No. 2 on World Digital Song Sales. Brown previously announced Future and Fridayy as featured artists on the double-disc project, with 11 tracks being on each side.
11:11 arrives a year after his 10th studio album Breezy, which he released on June 24, 2022, via CBE and RCA. The album — which was preceded by singles “Iffy,” “WE (Warm Embrace)” and “Call Me Every Day” (featuring Wizkid) — reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
The new LP also comes after a year of major collaborations for Brown, including songs with fellow stars like Ciara (on “How We Roll”), Chlöe (on “How Does It Feel”), Fridayy (on “Don’t Give It Away”), Ty Dolla $ign (on “Motion”) and Tee Grizzley with Mariah the Scientist (“IDGAF”).
