Sixth single and the title track from highly anticipated Xalbum. The song was released on August 22nd 2014.
Here is what Breezy had to say about the meaning behind “X” for MTV:
The song and the album title X has a couple different meanings. It can refer to an ex-girlfriend, in terms of you always look forward to moving forward from. It’s also about being a reject in a sense. In me being myself, being able to grow up, me not always hanging around the right crowd or doing the right thing all the time — it’s me saying, ‘I’m over it. I’m past the bulls**t now.’
Chris Brown is known for crossing over many different genres and perhaps this song is the best example. It starts off smooth (like a fully R&B track) before Breezy declares he knows just who you are and the EDM build up begins. The drop blends perfectly with the pre-hook instrumental but has more urban vibe to it, providing a sound that is sure to catch the heart of many different music lovers.
