Chris Brown Single ‘They Don’t Know’ to Feature Previously Unheard Aaliyah Vocals
Chris Brown is making headlines again, but this time it’s not for his bratty, offstage antics. Breezy’s new single ‘They Don’t Know’ will feature previously unheard vocals from late singer Aaliyah, who tragically died in a 2001 plane crash at the age of 22.
According to Rap-Up, Brezy revealed the news at a press conference for the BET Awards held today (May 14). He said, “I got something special for my fans. It’s called ‘They Don’t Know.’ All new stuff that’s never been heard before.”
We applaud Breezy for keeping Aaliyah’s legacy alive. It’s like she is sharing her voice with us from beyond.
The video for the track, which follows his initial ‘X’ single ‘Fine China,’ was filmed in L.A. this past weekend. You can hear a snippet of the song in the video shoot footage below.
Brown revealed, “I shot it in the hood. I went to 60th Street and Cedar Block. [I'm] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I’m from. I’m from Virginia, but everybody comes from a broken home or being broke — I remember when I was.”
The Aaliyah-assisted song is slated to appear on ‘X,’ which drops July 16.
