Well, well,well it seems as if the Breezy vs Drizzy saga continues. In a random but somehow not super surprising turn of events singer Chris Brown has announced that a song on his upcoming album X will feature none other than the late, great and gorgeous Aaliyah. The song is entitled They Don’t Know and will feature never-before heard vocals from the late singer. Chris had this to say about the song, which he just shot a vid for in the hood in Compton [guess being besties with the Game buys protection]:“”I’ll reveal it now! I just actually shot a video and the song is dedicated to all my fans. Its called, “They Don’t Know” and the song features Aaliyah! Never heard before vocals, all new stuff that has never been heard before, its something special for all my fans. I shot it in the hood, I wanted to bring both worlds together in the video and try to uplift the positive side of the community. I mean I come from Virginia, but everyone come from a broken home or broke, I remember when I was!”
To me, this is just a low blow to the competition. While it was still a shock for Drake to use Aaliyah’s vocals at least he paid homage to her multiple times over his entire career, even saying “she deserve the credit for how I’m about to get it.” I personally can’t remember CB ever mentioning Aaliyah before now, at all; not even an RIP or Happy Birthday tweet: NOTHING. So if it is in fact just ammunition to “kill” the competition, I suggest Breezy uses his album sales to buy some class. It would be pretty much the pettiest thing I’ve ever heard to use her likeness just to fuel a war. But that’s just my opinion. Drake can’t hog all the Aaliyah tributes to himself; maybe Chris was divinely inspired and just trying to show love. What do YOU think? Coincidence or cattiness? Vote below! While the whole song hasn’t hit the net yet, I was able to get my hands on a snippet. Check it out and let me know what you think.
