Chris Brown Offers His Own 'State of the Union' Message on New Song
President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union address on Tuesday night (Jan. 30) and shortly after, Chris Brown had a few things to get off his chest and delivered his own message on his new song "State Of The Union."
According to Brown's Instagram story, he was in the studio watching Trump's SOTU address from his laptop, and later previewed a snippet of the new track. "CAN WE GET BACK TO LOVE AND TO THE MUSIC?" he asked his followers in a post previewing the song.
Gentle guitar strums and a hushed piano pervade the throwback, slow-burning ballad, which is a sample of Goapele's 2001 R&B cut "Closer." On the optimistic, emotive track Chris sings, "But everybody hating, where the love at?/ If I give it to you, will you give the love back?/ Ooh, it's time for everybody to level up and settle up your problems/ Just go ahead and let God in 'cause he got us."
Brown recently teamed up with Remy Ma for "Melanin Magic" off Remy's upcoming album Seven Winter & Six Summers. Following the success of his double-album Heartbreak On A Full Moon, Brown has already teased a few projects he has on the horizon, including a joint project with Jacquees.
