New Music: Chris Brown – ‘Somebody Else’

Chris Brown

Chris Brown drops his version of Mario’s Nicki Minaj-assisted single “Somebody Else.” The Polow Da Don-produced beat was reportedly his before Mario got a hold of it. A brokenhearted Breezy pours out his emotions, singing about a girl who betrayed him.

“You left me for somebody else/ And I wish I never loved you,” he sings before dropping some rhymes.

Do you prefer Chris or Mario’s version? Listen and weigh in below.

    “You left me for somebody else,” yet you’re juggling two women at a time?

    He’s such a loser.

    @Cranberry, But people swear they personally know these strangers. I can’t with y’all. Did Chris Brown recently fuck Karrueche Tran in front of you recently? Did he hold her hand? Did he kiss her? The answer is no. How can he be juggling two women at the time (and of course, I’m talking about right now, because he did… months ago) when he’s single? Stop with the assumptions and open your eyes lil’ girl.

    @Cranberry, girl… he has 4 leeches on that tour bus. Out Here Broke (OHB) need to be let go as well. I respect Chris as an ARTIST but, as a MAN I don’t. He NEVER hangs around people who are doing things with their life. He is around bums 24/7. None of his friends are successful. He seems arrogant and has to be the man at all times. He can keep taking care of grown-up if he wants. Hope he gets things together cause he has too much talent to be on a tour bus with begging adults on no tour. For people who say “you don’t know him”… He puts himself out there, he gave himself a bad rep. He’s not doing anything to change it. I was so excited for this music he said he was coming out with. Now it doesn’t even seem like he cares anymore.

    @Cranberry, LOL at all these pathetic comments. He said he liked the song and wanted to cover it. So he did. It’s a cover, not his life story. Everyone swears they know so much about his private life when the reality is you don’t know half as much as you think. You don’t know wtf happened to him and Rihanna. It’s a cover! He didn’t write it, it’s not his song. He didn’t change ANYTHING but nicki’s verse. Suddenly you all think you know who it’s about. How people are breaking down lyrics to fit his life is crazy. He could cover God is awesome and people will still find a way to connect it to Rihanna. “he stay looking for attention singing about church after Rihanna put a bible verse! Jesus don’t love you Chris. Don’t use him to fix your life”. You guys don’t even realize how insane you all sound. For people who are ecstatic him and Rih are apart y’all sure do connect the dots a lot. Enjoy it or not for what it is, a cover of another artists song.

    @SMH, lol but like i just don’t understand. Isn’t he traveling on a bus with a brothel of women. Yet he feels all alone. Why because Rihanna dumped his ass. Boy bye!

    Ballsy Reply:

    @SMH, a tour bus that doesnt tour, filled with some groupie hoes and he finds time for THIS?? Where the phuck is the single that we’ve been waiting on?? I am beyond pissed that I have to witness his emotional breakdown every month when he’s on his period. MAN THE PHUCK UP!!! Fly to the girl and talk it out .. keep it off the blogs and come back and get to business!

    [Reply]

    Tracy Reply:

    @Ballsy, thank you. I been a fan too long to be witnessing this mess every time him and rih aren’t on good terms. He loses focus on his career and wastes time trying to diss or make songs about her. We get it Chris: as dysfunctional as y’all are y’all are in love, cool. Keep your relationship private and maybe y’all wouldn’t have to break up all the time. Lets get back to the music already! TB can do but so much.

    Was this necessary lol Let Mario have his moment lol

    He should have let Mario put him on a future remix for the song. That would’ve been better.

    [Reply]

    Hi Reply:

    @adan, you should really be quiet because Mario loved it, why the fuck you gotta talk for him???? Obviously Mario doesnt agree with you so bye

    [Reply]

    luv4chris Reply:

    @adan, I agree with you! My first thought when I read Chris’ tweet about remaking Mario’s song, was “how selfish & rude!” I love CB ‘s music, he has a lot of growing to do as a person. He should’ve let Mario have his shine. #JustSaying

    @datruth, Hopefully, she won’t. She seems to be doing much better with out him. Maybe is he wasn’t trying to impress his groupies he would be focusing on his music that isn’t doing so hot.

    luv4chris Reply:

    @datruth, I seriously hope him & Rih are done! Let’s face it, their not good for each other, HELLO! They’ll need to be checking into somebody’s rehab for substance abuse which seems to go with their lust for each other. There seems to be no substance in that relationship but substance abuse; weed, alcohol & sex! SMH

    I actually like the song and the beat drop. I don’t like it when he raps though, and I wish he could just do one song these days without autotune, but it wasn’t as much this time around.

    Chris where is “They Don’t Know”? Or do you even know when it’s coming out. I swear you don’t even know how talented you are. Why do you keep disappointing your fans? We love the free music but we want YOUR MUSIC!

    I love this, but here’s the thing > HE left HER 4 someone else, evn tho he said he was “going solo.” Actually, he nvr evn left that person in the first place! Thats the REAL reason she left him! But SHE didnt leave 4 someone else! & i dont like the rap part.

    Y’all act like the guy has never done covers of people’s songs before(ie: “Your love” and “Marvin’s Room”). Yeah he hasn’t come out with a single but remember Aaliyah is on the track so i’m sure he had to deal with the legal part before releasing the track officially. It doesn’t take years to record a song, he could have made this cover an hour before it was up on here. And as for him singing about Rihanna. It. Is. A. Cover. Nobody said this was about her stanky ass. Let him live and sing whatever songs he wants to, he doesn’t have to answer to our beck and call all the time.

    these comments are funny as hell(the ones i read). you can tell who these comments are coming from. rihanna “broke up” with him but yet her fanbase is the ones pissed, pressed, and bitter. this is a COVER of MARIO’S song not chris song. and who confirmed that this was suppose to be his???? he surely didn’t. he’s not crying over no damn rihanna. it’s so annoying to see ppl always tryna connect them 2 together, when it has nuthin to do with her or him (when its her).ppl quick to call someone a groupie (bt yet will b quick to throw their body at him) because they wish it was them instead. he’s riding around with a bus fullppl that are his family and close friends that matters to HIM and makes HIM happy, comfortable to b himself. i never seen so many so called “fans” be more concerned with their fave’s personal life than his/her career. if you’re a fan of his, focus on the music, which means buying, requesting and supporting and not what’s going on in his life. i mean like stay in a fans place and stop thinking ya’ll deluded asses have a say so in his life. oh and by the way, its not his fault “they dont kno” hasnt come out yet, his label changed the day/date; ya’ll would know that if you were paying attention to him music wise since he let his fans know what was goin on with the single via twitter. he’s been ready to put it out since last week. if your’re quick to turn your back on him, then you was NEVER really a fan. ijs
