    Sounds More Like Ciara’s ” If I were a Boy” to me.

    Leave aaliyah Alone and stop using her desperately to get Attention , Please.

    How “Fine China” is Doing Btw ?

    Chris Brown is a Great Dancer Live With Some Dance-Pop Hits.

    I don’t use his Live Vocals or his R&B ballads Tbh , I use ” Beautiful People/Don’t Wake Me Up” the most and they are Auto-tuned!

    Elijah Blake’s “X.O.X” Is good , But I won’t Put Him on a Pedestal Just Yet.

    Are you guys serious? Chris Brown can’t sing. At all. His voice is pure auto-tune and majority of his performances are lip synced. He is a great performer though. Like a male version of a younger Britney Spears only with more songwriting credibility.

And how many black female R&B singers were on that dark gothic s*** back in 2001 with snakes and s***. Get the f*** outta here with that busllshit.

    This era for CB is confusing me. I thought he said this was going to focus more on his vocal growth. Fine Chine was a decent start…..it was different. However, he’s not really promoting it. The album comes out really soon, so I don’t really have a lot of faith in it if this is all he’s giving me.

    Think You Know seems more like a tacky PR scheme to get people interested in the project. It has Aaliyah on the track so of course people are going to be interested in it: whether they approve or disapporve of CB using her on the track. The only reason I bothered to listen to it was because I wanted to see how he used Baby Girl on the track.

    Somewhere out there, Drake is seething. Aaliyah is his girl lol.

    The song sounds promising though. I see it doing well on urban. I believe all the random yelling in the background is coming from the extras in the video. Sounds like someone recorded random bits and pieces from the video shoot.

    I thought CB was using unreleased Aaliyah, but this is just a verse taken from another one of her songs. I’m underwhelmed, and it doesn’t sound like anything she’d be on. The beat is too much. Her music was usually simple because her voice wasn’t overpowering. Maybe I’ll like it when I get the HQ version since I like Chris well enough.

    Aaliyah’s music wasn’t simple. I think that you need to either listen to or revisit her albums. If you’re saying that she wasn’t a powerhouse vocalist, fair enough, but the beats and construction of her songs were not simple. Are you that somebody isnt’ a simple song

    I don’t necessarily mean a simple composition. Her music was never overdone. I own each album by her and at one point, I was a “stan”. I loved Aaliyah because her music overall was very relaxed and smooth. That was her style. Even her dancing was smooth and fluid. She wasn’t the crunk, gaudy-beat type of singer.

    Im just waiting for the full song realy, I hope its good and one thing I will say is I would be disappointed if he used this to spite drake but if Timb is involved then maybe I can be ok.

    What I have witnessed is that real fans of an artist(especially deceased) love to hear their voice being played on today’s radio regardless who’s paying tribute if its done classy and right, doesnt tarnish the name I wouldnt have a problem with it.

    And it would of been great if Aaliyah was present to do a dance part in the music video with Chris.

    The only thing I am worrying about is if Chris Brown made a Drake reference in this song, I think it would be terrible if he added Aaliyah on a track to diss someone.

    I’m still hoping that do something crazy with this music video by having Chris Brown & Aaliyah (As a Hologram) dancing together or something lol.

    I am not a chris brown fan, however i am glad he is putting aaliyah’s name out there.

    This song was originally recorded with another rnb group.

    The only think Chris Brown did is add his vocals on instead of dru hill (i think its them)

    One thing i didnt like about the drake is that he tried to change the beats to the song he out out,

    This one with chris brown is more realistic because he just added his vocals to the same song.

    I absolutely loved Aaliyah when she was alive and while people tend to get it twisted regarding the whole ‘she wasn’t a powerhouse so she couldn’t sing debate’, hearing her voice again just reminds me why I preferred her to every other chick in the game past and present. Her voice was gorgeous and charismatic…, she caressed your ear, while the bulk of today’s best singers Xtina, Beyonce, JHud, Jessie J etc. have been lead tyo believe that battering the ear into submission is the only way to prove you can sing. Aaliyah could belt when she wanted to (see: Giving Up) but mostly she just really knew how to convey an emotion. But trust me when I say that ‘Restraint’ is one of the most under-used skills in the modern game.

    re: the track I have to say she is the best thing about it. Tbh, as irritating as Drake’s obsession is with her is (and CB’s use at this point is suspect proven otherwise) 40-40′s sound does remind me of her at times enough for me to see him as a genuine fan of what she brought to music. However, Aaliyah despite being roughly around their age was infinitely more sophisticated than either of them and she was never gassed by her success unlike either of them.
