Chris Brown has gifted fans his new album, 11:11, a day early. Initially set to release Nov. 11, Brown went to Instagram on Wednesday night (Nov. 8) to alert fans that the project would arrive sooner than expected.
The 22-track album is divided into two parts: 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. The first half contains all the above-mentioned features. Brown remains at center stage for the second half with no special guests.
Brown first hinted at new music in May via Instagram. He told his devoted fans, affectionately known as Team Breezy, to expect new music as early as the summertime.
He also noted that his next release would contain fewer tracks than what his fans had been used to over the years.
“Y’all ready for some new music? Been locked in the studio. Ultra instinct activated. I’ll let y’all know the album title soon. NO MORE 20 to 40 song albums. JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF MAGIC TO DIGEST,” Brown wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post.
In August, Brown delivered more news to Team Breezy, including the official album title and tentative Nov. 11 release date. Additionally, he confirmed the album would only contain 11 tracks, as he wanted to make his next effort more digestible.
“I see Some of my die hard fans wanting me to add more songs for the new project and I love y’all for that. But, I just feel I need you all to really miss me and take my art seriously. IM JUST focused on giving y’all the best to digest. 11:11 make a wish,” he wrote on Instagram.
Later, Brown shared 11:11 would feature 22 tracks in total and would be released in two parts, with 11 tracks dropping at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 and the remaining songs releasing at 11 p.m. It wasn’t until earlier this week (Wednesday) that Brown finally stated the album would be released all at once on Nov. 10.
11:11 is the follow-up to Brown’s 2022 album, Breezy. The standard version debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart, tallying Brown’s ninth top 10 album on that chart.
Brown followed up with Breezy (Deluxe) a week after the album release. The expanded version featured nine bonus tracks, including collaborations with Anderson .Paak and Davido.
