Chris Brown has said that his forthcoming new album, 'X', is likely to be his last.

The US singer took to Twitter to tell fans the news. 'X' is set for release on August 19 and will be Brown's sixth studio album. It features collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Ludacris, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna and Diplo, as well as 'Don't Think They Know', which features vocals from the late Aaliyah. Brown wrote:



He then added, presumably about the domestic violent charges he was found guilty of after beating up then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009: "Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

Earlier this year it was reported that Chris Brown had made himself unpopular with his neighbours as they believed the "devil" artwork painted on the side of his Beverly Hills mansion was "scaring children". They claimed that the garish, sharp-toothed goblins, which are painted along the retaining wall of his Californian home, are ruining the community's aesthetic and upsetting local kids. City officials responded to the complaints about Brown's monster art and fined the singer $376 (£244) for unpermitted and excessive signage.
