Remy Ma is teaming up with Chris Brown on her brand new single “Melanin Magic (Pretty Brown).” Before it drops this week, the rapper has shared a snippet of the song off her upcoming album, 7 Winters & 6 Summers.
Over a sample of Mint Condition’s “Breakin’ My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes),” Remy boasts about her “brown skin” and ultra-flyness. “Got that melanin magic, brown skin poppin’ / Always fly, I stay in a cockpit,” she raps. “I want it, I cop it / Open the door, then lock it / Every time Remy touch the city, stop it.”

Breezy comes around for the melodic Mint Condition-inspired hook. “You’re my pretty brown eyes,” he sings. “I want you / I don’t need you in my life / But you’re my vibe tonight and I love you.”
Reminisce announced “Melanin Magic” with a cover art contest, allowing fans to vote on different options. The winner finds her surrounded by other women with the spotlight on her.
“Melanin Magic,” the follow-up to “Wake Me Up” with Lil’ Kim, arrives Friday (Jan. 19), while Remy’s sophomore album 7 Winters & 6 Summers is due early this year via Columbia Records.
