Chris Brown may be busy recording for his upcoming eighth studio album, but it looks like Breezy has also been hard at work developing a new sound for eager fans. According to recent rumors, Chris Brown has reportedly teamed up with Prince Royce for a “bachata”-style collaboration that will appear on the singer’s soon-to-be-released album, Five, which drops later this month on February 24.
Rumors of a bachata-inspired track by Chris Brown first emerged in November after a snippet of a song titled, “Just As I Am,” began making the rounds on Twitter, prompting fans to speculate over whether or not the track would appear on Chris’ upcoming album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon.

In addition to Chris Brown, Prince Royce’s star-studded album also features collaborations with artists such as Zendaya, Shakira, Gerardo Ortiz, and Farruko, to name a few.
The news comes just days after Chris Brown announced via social media that he was in the process of building a studio at his home in Tarzana, California, taking to Instagram to show off the work that had been completed thus-far on the exciting project, Hot New Hip Hop reports.
While Breezy has since deleted the video, the singer hasn’t been shy about his work thus far on his upcoming eighth studio album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, as Brown has been frequently teasing new music snippets and fueling collaboration rumors with several artists over the past few months.
Last week, Chris Brown was seen hanging out with rapper French Montana at his Tarzana home just days before making the announcement about his new home studio project, in addition to igniting rumors suggesting that he may be helping to produce a song for ex-girlfriend Rihanna after the duo was spotted at the same NYC recording studio last month.
In January, Chris Brown continued to tease fans with snippets of songs that are rumored to appear on Heartbreak on a Full Moon via brief, 30-second Instagram video uploads, this time confirming that a track titled “Sirens” is in the works for an upcoming project.
