Chris Brown's X has been a long time coming. We heard the first single "Fine China" last year, but legal issues have delayed the release of the album. Brown is currently serving 3 months in rehab for anger management, but it looks like he's begun to start thinking about getting his album together, as he's announced the release date today.

Taking to twitter, Chris announced that the project will be coming May 5th, as well as calling it his "best album yet". He included a photo which looks like it could possibly be a piece of the album cover, but we'll have to wait and see.

May 5th happens to be the same release date as Lil Wayne's "Carter V". Who's gonna sell more?
