Update 9:20PM: Chris Brown stopped by Hot 97 to give details on his new album, Royalty. He revealed that the album will be available for pre-order this Friday, with its release date set for Dec. 18th. It's named after his daughter, and he gave radio host Nessa some details about being a new parent. "It's just amazing to see an extension of myself growing up, and I'm able to just show her happiness and love."
He also gave some details on its production ("I think I'm really just focusing on great music,") and sounded off on the negative stereotypes of black men. "I feel like everyone has a stereotype and everyone has a way of living that always comes off of doubt. Doubting themselves to never be able to be good enough because of situations in life." Check out the interview below, and look out for the Royalty pre-order this Friday.
See below for the original story.
Despite reports that its release date was being pushed to December, it looks like we'll be getting Chris Brown's Royalty album this month after all. Brown took to Instagram today to post a promotional video for the project, which claimed it would be available in just four days. This means he will sneak the album in just in time for the lucrative Black Friday shopping day.

The album will include the already-released singles "Zero," "Liquor," and "Back to Sleep." It was originally set to release this week, but was supposed to be pushed back, reportedly to avoid conflicting with the massive release of Adele's 25. Now it seems the original plans are back on, and it will release this Friday, Nov. 27th, as scheduled. Royalty will be Brown's seventh solo album, and his second project of the year, following his collaborative Fan of a Fan: The Album with Tyga. It is named after his young daughter, who is featured on the cover.
