It’s Not “Sour Love” That Chris Brown is Promising on New Sex Ballad
Posted by Newson 03/29/2012 at 9:47 AM
“Oh baby let’s get naked, just so we can make sweet love.” That’s the first lyric and also the hook to Chris Brown’s new Fortune preview “Sweet Love,” which is really a pretty accurate introduction to a song that pretty much checks all the “sex ballad” boxes, from the promises to “go downtown” to the rhythm-of-love chugging beat to assurances that “baby, I know what to do.” The production saves the song from being completely rote, with a bed of swirling synths and some Purple Rain-style percussion providing some interesting texture to Breezy’s loverman affirmations, and…well, at least there are no bed-wetting lyrical conceits in this one. That was a little much.
If you can listen to “Sweet Love” without picturing Brown scowling intimidatingly the entire time, it might be legitimately seductive. Tough one for us.
Real R&B and Hip Hop coming soon! “SWEET LOVE” next single(R&B). “TILL I DIE” next single(rap) ft @BigSean and WIZ KHALIFA!
