Watch: Chris Brown Shoots New Video / Samples Aaliyah?

Published: Monday 13th May 2013 by Sam

Having provided a taste of ‘Fine China’, stage blazer Chris Brown continues his ‘X’ campaign with a brand new single.

Little is known about the track, however fan-footage from the shoot for its accompanying video yesterday has yield some interested tidbits – the most notable being its seeming feature of an Aaliyah sample.

Details and video below…

Sources say the shoot took place in Compton, California. Peep the clip below which sees C. Breezy lip-synching to a new song that features part of an Aaliyah cut titled ‘Don’t Think They Know’.

Already floating around on Youtube, the version already out sees the late songstress serve as a feature (with Digital Black as the main act). Yet, the Aaliyah vocals present in the clip above aren’t actually performed by her in the version of the song already doing the rounds. Put simply, Brown appears to have landed himself a much sought-after unheard Aaliyah verse which arguably a major coup as the July 16th release of ‘X’ draws nearer.

That said, besides re-opening the debate about whether the fallen diva’s unheard material should stay just that (see: unheard), Brown’s new track is super ironic. Why, you may wonder? Well, color us cynical, but we doubt there any coincidence in the fact that rival Drake has (up until now) been the main name attached to Aaliyah’s musical “revival”.

What’s more, with the ‘Rock The Boat’ singer being a soft-spot of sorts for Drizzy, it’ll be interesting to see what -if anything- he will have to say about this. For now though, we want to know…

    I just hope Aaliyah is being used as a pawn for yet another Chris Brown/Drake feud. Aaliyah was better than this. I welcome the idea of Chris doing something with her, I could’ve seen Aaliyah working with him when she was alive. (Before the whole Rihanna incident)

    • James227 May 13, 2013

      I agree

    OMFG. My Dude. I Was THERE!!! Not In the Video But Watching Them Film. He Was Like 2-3 Blocks From Where I Stay. So Me and My Friends Took Our Asses To Go Watch. It Was Alot of People. But I Can Say, Chris Knows How to Make Video’s FUN! When their not rolling, he’s crack’n jokes, practicing or talking amongst people. I mean. I hate what he raps. But I was really dig’n this song. At least the parts I heard.

  8. Yeah I Said it May 13, 2013

    I hope he is not playing games with Aaliyahs name just to rub Drake up the wrong way, but I wouldn’t put anything past this kid smh.

    What an insult to her legacy. A flop woman beating thug using her music to spread his sexually inappropriate gangster agenda. Flop f**

  10. THOR (THE #1 MIMI & MADGE STAN) May 13, 2013

      All those 1000’s of people that was at his wild jam concert gives a f*uck. Can’t wait unti his Billboard performance, he better bring it.

      • kim May 13, 2013

        ofcourse he will bring his grasshopper ass and plastic mic. what else to bring.

  11. ZANIA May 13, 2013

    I am so excited can’t wait to hear his new material. I think Aaliyah estate gave permission for CB to use old material. I wonder what the surprise will be on 05/15/2013 that he is announcing on his website.

    • Dev May 13, 2013

      Aaliyah’s “estate” don’t own any of her music as they didn’t want any released after her death. Her Uncle owner of Blackground “i got JoJo on a lockdown contract” record owns her recordings
      I like the sound of the track (if its Aaliyah) but with the apparent pending album promised by Blackground a while ago i’m surprised that they let this go to Chris unless it’s indeed a new track for the album… maybe a first single to hit us for the summer

  12. Jewell May 13, 2013

    Omg a mess, leave Aaliyah alone.

  13. truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) May 13, 2013

  14. Blue May 13, 2013

    for a moment i thought that was rihanna in the pic

    • James227 May 13, 2013

      Rihanna is pretty but not as pretty as Aalyiah.

  15. Slayty Perry (The Female MJ) May 13, 2013

    Chile he is STILL trying?? His album won’t do more than 500k after its 1st year. Im calling it.

    • ZANIA May 13, 2013

      My boy was on top of the world until he brought the world in 2011 into his personal life with Rihanna and Karrueche. He ran R & B and won every award that year at all the shows, What happen. Now all the hate he gets its because of him breaking up with Rihanna and Karrueche. I don’t know who is his PR. I know one of his manager was Bu who is the executive for Def Jam, not a good look, because he will look out for his artist before CB. His Fame album was 100,000 short of platinum, what happen since two years ago.

  16. yeah yeah May 13, 2013

    drake beef. this all about keeping stories up.

    his tricks to get our attention started to get old and desperate.

    what’s next ? another rant on twitter ?!

    gimme a break from this one.

    • ZANIA May 13, 2013

      I love Rihanna but we all know she is the Queen of tricks and controversy. Just because Rihanna and CB broke it doesn’t stop me from viewing and enjoying their music separately. CB career went down over the past two years since he put his relationship first with those two women.

  19. Mark111 May 13, 2013

    I’m just glad to hear her voice. My fave is NOT gonna be known as Drake’s obsession nor CB b*******! She worked too hard and pretty much died for her music. And to the haters, it’s been 11 years and she’s still dope, but she’s not that big, right?

  20. sha May 13, 2013

    Drake dosen’t own Aaliyah. Drake Has A weird obsession with her i don’t like it.

  21. Babe Blue May 13, 2013

    Wow… seriously using the voice of Aaliyah, it’s such a big disappointment to her fans and towards her family.

  22. HiLow May 15, 2013

    This song isn’t new, leaked, or unreleased unless there is a solo version with just Aaliyah floating around somewhere…but anyway the song is Don’t Think They Know Featuring Aaliyah its on Digital Black from Playa Album called Memoirs of a R&B Thug released June ’05 for those who really don’t know. Google it…
