NEW VIDEO: @CHRISBROWN FEAT. AALIYAH-DON’T THINK THEY KNOW

Finally, Chris Brown dropped his latest visual for his brand new single: Don’t Think They Know, featuring the lovely Aaliyah. I have been waiting for the single to drop on Itunes, along with the visual for awhile now. The song hit a few snags in legalities (the title was THEY DON’T KNOW after the 90’s hit sang by Jon B, and had to be changed) but finally here it is. Now I have to let you know how Chris explains the concept of the video: “I shot it in the hood, I went to the 60s. I went to Cedar block.” It’s both worlds, it’s bringing both worlds together in the video trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and just showing them where I’m from.” (via MTV)

Let me start by saying, I applaud the message! The task of trying to end gang violence is a daunting one, and I’m happy when anyone takes a moment not only to notice that somehting needs to be done but also lends a hand to get somehtnign done. However, this song did not match the video at all to me. It does not take away from the single at all because hearing Aaliyah on this track is just superb, but if the visual and the track are miles away from each other. No where in the lyrics of this song does have me thinking of rivals reconciling. Now I said that to say this…I believe that the treatment for the video changed…then later he spoke on twitter saying that the video was a tribute to Team Breezy.(during the time he was making of the video)..and now it’s become about unity. Like I said I love the message being portrayed..but I don’t think it was the original concept..at least I hope it wasn’t because this song does not SCREAM UNITY of all people. I honestly think it was his version of “Nobody’s Business”…*shrugs*..
I think it’s just me though (I don’t mind saying it), I hate “concept” videos…like when I hear a song..I want to see visually what the lyrics are portraying. I mean think about Drake featuring Rihanna, Take Care…that video with bulls, birds, etc in it did not scream anything about Taking Care of someone..hehehe…or Jay Z’s On To The Next One..smh. Ya’ll get my point. Heck what happened to video like Jon B-The Don’t Know…you know exactly what the video was portraying..you didn’t have to take a class on symbolism..haha. Anyway, Chris still will get my $1.29 for the song, but I refuse to believe that when he was writing his lyrics to this song..that he had the Bloods & Crips in mind. Where is his management..this is crazy?

Lyrics
Hook: Aaliyah]
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw (A-A-to the L-I-Y-A-H)
I don’t think they know, how could they know
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw
I don’t think they know, how could they know
[Verse 1: Chris Brown]
Don’t let them tell you any different
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
I owe it all to you
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
And as much as I messed up, always give me your best love
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
[Bridge:]
Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve you
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
They gon’ talk about it (gon’ talk about it)
Gon’ try to change your mind about it
Gon’ tell you things you don’t wanna hear
Cause we good. (Don’t worry ’bout it)
So when they talk about (they talk about it)
Just let ‘em know we already got it
Just tell ‘em that we gon’ work at it, we good (Don’t worry ’bout it)
[Hook: Aaliyah]
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw
I don’t think they know, how could they know
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw
I don’t think they know, how could they know
[Chris Brown]
Don’t listen to (How could they know)
What people say (How could they know)
They don’t know about (How could they know)
‘Bout you and me (How could they know)
[Verse 2: Chris Brown]
At my best you love me
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
Even though I act my worse
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
And I know that it’s different, feels like we’re best friends
We connected
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
[Bridge:]
What did I do to deserve you
They don’t know about us, they don’t know about it
They gon’ talk about it (gon’ talk about it)
Gon’ try to change your mind about it
Gon’ tell you things you don’t wanna hear
Cause we good. (Don’t worry ’bout it)
So when they talk about (they talk about it)
Just let ‘em know we already got it
Just tell ‘em that we gon’ work at it, we good (Don’t worry ’bout it)
[Hook: Aaliyah]
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw
I don’t think they know, how could they know
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw
I don’t think they know, how could they know
[Chris Brown]
Don’t listen to (How could they know)
What people say (How could they know)
They don’t know about (How could they know)
‘Bout you and me (How could they know)
[Verse 3:Aaliyah]
How could they know x5
Thank you for the autographs
And the tears over the years
You still found me, you didn’t doubt me
I think you want some more
I do more than sing
I’m older now
Actin’ now
Cause I got my own movie now
After all the awards
That they gave me
You still found me
You didn’t play me, you didn’t doubt me
Think you want some more
I truly believe that if it wasn’t all for you
I don’t know what I would do
[Hook: Aaliyah]
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw
I don’t think they know, how could they know
I don’t think they know the truth
Say they saw
I don’t think they know, how could they know
[Chris Brown]
Don’t listen to (How could they know)
What people say (How could they know)
They don’t know about (How could they know)
‘Bout you and me (How could they know)
 

NEW MUSIC: AALIYAH-ENOUGH SAID (SOLO VERSION)

Aahh! Aaliyah’s solo version of Enough Said dropped this morning. I’m so glad they leaked this version of the song. Just hearing her voice, makes it seem as R/B will be revived, even if it takes Aaliyah to do it from the grave. Check it out.

NEW MUSIC:AALIYAH FEAT. DRAKE(@DRAKE) -ENOUGH SAID

Drake just released a new joint with Aaliyah called Enough Said. The young rapper also got a new tattoo in tribute to the late singer. It’s being said that Drake will also produce her new album & do her biopic, without the blessing of her family, or Timbaland. Timbaland let it be known that if he were to do it (Drake) he has to have himself & Missy involved. Take a listen to what Timbo had to say about it. Then check out the new joint.
