One of the stand out tracks for Chris Brown’s December offering, Royalty, was the sensual and sexy, “Back To Sleep.” And after decent radio play and a steamy visual, CB is ready to create “the ultimate R&B song” with not only one remix, but three. Friday, Brown announced that his third single off his latest CD would have three separate remixes all with the help of the hottest and the cream of the crop of R&B crooners.
First up, Usher and former One Direction member, Zayn assist Breezy; keeping it nothing but sexy. The new version, released on SoundCloud in the late night/early morning hours of February 20th, keeps the sexual tone of the song all while both features put their own sauce to the Vinylz and Boi-1da produced intro. The lyrics, as expected, are raunchier and at one point, Breezy even pleads for the forgiveness (once again) of ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran (which is not on the original version of the ballad). Brown takes it there, addressing his infidelity, apologizes for messing around and melodically serenades how he only wants her to love him again.
The twosome split over major cheating allegations, and after Kae found out via social media that her boyfriend had a child with another woman while they were still together (ouch, right?) Although it’s a tad redundant at this point, it’s pretty sweet how CB chooses to lay his verse on an NSFW related track, pleading to the woman he desires to be with but will it be enough for Kae to listen R&B “bad boy?” Well, we hear you CB!
The second installment to the R&B remix of the year is alluded to have Miguel, August Alsina and Bryson Tiller while the third round Tyrese and Tank are set to hold it down.
