Chris Brown decided to take his music in a positive direction this week, by releasing a unity song titled, ‘They Don’t Know.” He collaborates with his friend, the late great Aaliyah. He samples her vocals and dances with her, while promoting peace among young people. Great job Chris! We love that. Chris and Aaliyah were friends before her tragic passing in a plane crash a decade ago.
Chris Brown has offered up the second video from his forthcoming X disc, “They Don’t Know”. Featuring the haunting vocals from Aaliyah, the “Boyz n The Hood” themed clip features Breezy uniting the Bloods and the Crips. Shot in Compton, CA, the visual shows Chris dancing before movie projections of Aaliyah’s “Try Again” video while attempting to make peace amongst the gangs in the neighborhood.
Chris begins the clip with a message to the viewer,
“Every two hours in America today a child dies of a gunshot wound. Unity is what we are afraid of so fear is insanity, lets love each other.”
On twitter, he expounded his message saying,
“The new single is apart of my “UNITY CAMPAIGN” which encourages all races, genders, sexes, (everyone) gay or straight to love each other!”
