Hear Chris Brown’s Diplo-produced ‘X’ title track
Billboard cover boy Diplo has been tapped by Chris Brown to produce the introductory and title track from his upcoming X album. Historically working wonders for artists in pop, hip-hop and R&B, Diplo often treats these areas of production with unique efforts that stray from his dance music persona; take Usher’s “Climax,” Sia and The Weeknd’s “Elastic Heart,” or even Justin Bieber’s “Memphis” for example. For Chris Brown, however, Diplo laces his more signature stylings. “X” rings per Brown’s melodic work with Diplo easing undertones into a sudden trap climax, where both the singer and producer get aggressive and flip the record on its head.
