Chris Brown has released “I Can’t Win,” a poignant track about his rocky relationship with Rihanna which won’t be appearing on his upcoming album, X.

Like most of us, J. Cole was a shamelessly fanatical teenager, so he understands the way of the overzealous fan. During an “Intimate Conversation” with The Crosby Press’ Fat Jew, Cole recall fawning over Alicia Keys.
“I have fanatic tendencies in me, too,” he admits. “One time when I was like 14–Alicia Keys had just came out–I was in love with her. You ask my ma, she’ll tell you ‘[I had a] super duper crush on Alicia Keys’.” Read More
