Chris Brown has announced a release date for his delayed new album X.

On Saturday, he tweeted, “X is by far my best album yet…. Setting the date for MAY 5.”

He included some artwork (see below).

Last summer, Brown suggested that his sixth studio album could be his last, although he never officially announced a retirement from recording music.

In November, he released his X Files mixtape, with six songs including guest spots from Busta Rhymes and Ludacris.
