I would like to review this properly but it would ruin all of the surprises, so all I’m going to say is the strings, drums and special guests = incredible. Rihanna’s vocals aren’t really at the expected level though, but in fairness her voice sounds like it’s feeling the FX of the Grammys, Brits and NBA all in the same week.

Imagine: if the FA Cup or Champions League final had a show like this.

PS, if you don’t watch until the end, you are going to miss out BIG TIME.

“You can try your best to let someone go because you don’t make that intellectual connection, but  somehow still fall to the powers of physical attraction..”. That’s the description on the Youtube video, and it pretty much sums up the track. I’m sure many of you have been in that position. I wrote this based partly on personal experience, but there are some fictional ideas in there too. Overall though, it’s probably a fair reflection of how I feel about relationships right now.

I saw this when it came up a couple days ago, but I thought I would reserve judgement until I had time to let it simmer. The tune is big (the beat, the concept, the collabo and the video) let’s not deny that; Chris Brown no doubt will maximise his reputation after delivering this vocal masterclass, but I can’t help but feel Chip brought his average Oopsy Daisy rhymes onto possibly the record of 2011? As a RAPPER, I really don’t see anything special from the Chipmunk which promised so much when he was a Grime MC. He sounds out of his depth, and though his bars show the occasional flash of artistry, I don’t think it’s enough. Seems as though he is making a cameo on his own track.

To be honest it’s just a field day for Chris Brown to increase his exposure in the UK in the aftermath of a career which stagnated since the Rihanna incident. CB has around 3 minutes out of the 4 minutes of the tune.. Need I say more? What do you think..

So a long while after the buzz, a video has finally been shot. Incredibly, the single has spent three weeks as the US number 1, despite the video only being shot last week.

Here it is.. PS. MEGAN FOX!

Talent always shines through and this was demonstrated in Chris Brown’s incredible BET Awards performance last night. He’s already done similar tributes many times at his own shows, but this has got to be the one that re-ignites a career in tatters after the Rihanna controversy.
