As promised, Chris Brown is giving fans a double shot of “Fortune.”
The singer shows off his R&B and hip-hop sides with a pair of new singles, “Sweet Love” and “Til I Die,” respectively, which hit the web on Tuesday.
The yearning “Sweet Love,” which swirls with electronic elements and digital percussion, is a laid-back sex jam with Brown calling for himself and his lover to “get naked / just so we can make sweet love.” The futuristic track was produced by Polow da Don and Jason “JP” Perry, while Danja handled the synth-soaked, hi-hat heavy beat for “Til I Die.” The latter track is the second hip-hop song in as many weeks to name-drop former Alaska governor and Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who also made an appearance in G.O.O.D. Music’s “Mercy” last week. Perhaps Big Sean — who drops verses on both tracks — has a crush? “Til I Die” is rounded out with rhymes from Wiz Khalifa, who sticks to his sweet spots — weed and women.
Brown’s “Fortune” is due May 4. Hear both songs below. What do you think of Brown’s new sounds?
