Chris Brown says he is retiring from music. The singer took to his Twitter page to announce that his upcoming album “X” might just be his last.
“Don’t worry mainstream America. After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album,” Brown wrote. “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!” The tweets have since been deleted.
Brown’s career has been tumultuous at best since his ‘mistake’ prior to the 2009 Grammy Awards when he attached his then girlfriend, Rihanna (he was actually 19-years-old at the time). He has since had high profile, and violent, feuds with Drake and Frank Ocean. Earlier this week, Brown turned himself in to authorities for a hit-and-run in Los Angeles.
However, when musicians announce a retirement, things don’t always go as they planned. Most return to the industry before many even realize they had left.
Do you think Chris Brown will actually retire?
