Chris Brown fans received a welcome surprise today with the release of the 11:11 (Deluxe) album, boasting 13 new tracks on top of the standard version’s offering. This expanded project brings the total to a whopping 35 songs.

The new batch features a star-studded line-up of collaborators, including past partners Mario and Bryson Tiller, alongside heavy hitters like Lil Wayne, Tee Grizzley, Joyner Lucas, and Davido.

The deluxe edition opens with “Bruce Lee,” produced by YX. Brown channels vulnerability, hoping to weather a troubled relationship. “If we make it out the storm / We’re stronger / So we need to move like water,” he sings with a touch of desperation.

Fans of smooth R&B will find solace in “Won’t Keep You Waiting” featuring Mario. This sweet bedroom jam oozes charm as both artists harmonize in the sultry chorus.

For those seeking a club anthem, look no further than “Freak.” Brown joins forces with Joyner Lucas, Lil Wayne, and Tee Grizzley for an electrifying track that samples Nelly’s classic “Air Force Ones.” Each rapper delivers fiery bars over a bass-heavy production, guaranteed to ignite any dance floor.

Brown first hinted at the deluxe edition in February, teasing fans with the possibility of 11 new songs and a tentative April 11th release date. He not only delivered on his promise but also surprised fans with two bonus tracks.

This latest offering follows the critically acclaimed standard version of 11:11, released in November 2023. The original project featured the Grammy-nominated “Summer Too Hot” and the NAACP Image Award-winning “Sensational” featuring Davido and Lojay. Both tracks dominated urban radio and rhythmic radio charts.

11:11 (Deluxe) marks the follow-up to Brown’s successful Breezy album, released in June 2022. Breezy debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart and No. 9 on the Billboard 200, further solidifying Brown’s place as an R&B powerhouse.

To celebrate the new release, Brown will embark on The 11:11 Tour kicking off on June 5th in Detroit. Muni Long and Ayra Starr will join him on select dates, with Maeta providing support throughout the tour. The North American leg will wrap up on August 7th at the Arena in Los Angeles.
