You weren’t meant to be yours alone.
You are whatever we say you are.
You will be a mannequin for a man again.
Transform yourself to our liking.
We will build you up to break you down.
You are not important unless everybody likes you.
Be explicit to elicit our affection.
The only way to win is to lose yourself to us.
Attention comes with a price.
We’ll buy into you if you sell your truth.
If this track from Chris Brown’s upcoming album “F.A.M.E.” which drops March 22, doesn’t blow up, I’ll be genuinely surprised. When the powers that be put Justin Bieber on a Chris Brown song (after he did a remix on Bieb’s “Never Say Never” remix album) people will listen. The vocal layering and call and response of the verses keep the song interesting. This pop track is safe and clean enough for Bieber’s audience and catchy enough to appeal to Breezy‘s growing fanbase.
‘Next 2 You’ is a soothing mid-tempo dance number featuring gentle rhythms, synthetic swelling strings and tenderly sung lyrics promising love and devotion:
“Girl you are the only thing that I got right / One day when the sky is falling / I’ll be standing right next to you / Right next to you/ Nothing will ever come between us because I’ll be standing right next to you / Right next to you.”
