Chris Brown debuted a new song on Big Boy's Neighborhoodmorning show Wednesday. The song, "Crawl," comes just one day after Rihannareleased "Russian Roulette" as her first record since her February 8altercation with Chris.
In "Crawl," Chris accepts the blame for a relationship goneawry and asks his unnamed lover for a second chance.
"I'm the one that one that lost the view
Everybody says were' through
I hope you haven't said it too"
Chris Brown has scored hits with other slow jams, "Say Goodbye"and "Take You Down," but "Crawl" is an even stronger record. Potential backlashfrom Chris' assault on Rihanna is the only thing that could stop this song fromtopping the charts.
Even though I like the song, I find the timing of itsrelease to be strategic.
Last month, Chris released another song, the dance track "ICan Transform Ya." But, even before the video for the song surfaced, Chris hasalready moved on.
Literally, the day after Rihanna released the emotionallyunstable "Russian Roulette" and earned some sympathy, Chris seemingly one upsher, responding with a remorseful record.
