Chris Brown single "Don't Think They Know" features Aaliyah
How did THAT happen?
The video includes a message at the beginning rattling off stats about gun violence. In the black and white video, only accents of red in some scenes and blue in others are tinted and visible. It feels like a blatant nod to the Bloods and Crips, uniting gangs. Perhaps Brown will have another explanation. Lucky for Brown, he knows his way around an R&B song, so the track is a steady stream of R&B-slash-pop goodness. Brown even interpolates the hook from Jon B's classic "They Don't Know."
Aaliyah's part fits like a glove, and it really does feel like she was meant to be on the track. There is of course the sadness that comes from hearing Babygirl and knowing she's no longer with us. However, Brown does an OK job of commemorating her in the video. When she handles the bridge, there are a series of people in black hoods holding candles. The weird part is Brown is wearing neon contacts and his eyes are altered to shoot lasers. Highly inappropriate for the "memorial" portion of the video.
Despite the video having a few quirks, the track is damn good. Check out both below.
As a die hard Aaliyah fan y'all haters need to stop, if u want to respect Aaliyahs work as an artist and know her work as an artist she was an extremely talented woman who had a vibrant positive personality. Granted Breezy's past mistakes but other than that who else could replace her on this track? If she were alive Beyoncé` would prolly still be wit destiny's child. It fits the message he's been trying promote for a while now. ACT LIKE you aint got people in ur own damn family who might've beaten a women. Then holla at me. ****in ingrates
Babygirls legacy is like a diamond, and nothing Drake or Brown or any of todays artist can do to make it shine any brighter. As Brown himself says, "let it go"!
Aaliyah is exactly what Chris Brown always wanted Rihanna to be:
