Pass Or Play? Chris Brown Gives Glimpse Into Chaotic Lifestyle And Longs For Pre-Fame In Video For New Single, “Home”

February 18, 2013  |  

What do you want from him? That’s the question Chris Brown is asking (or more like, “Whaaaat the f******ck you waaaaaant from me!?“) in the song “Home,” the debut single off of his upcoming sixth studio album, Carpe Diem. In the video, Brown can be seen jet-setting all over the world, including Paris, Germany and South Africa, performing for his many fans and hitting up clubs, boats, bikes, and beautiful women. Doesn’t seem to out of the ordinary right? Almost sounds like an amped up version of “Beautiful People.” We know that “follow-me-on-my-wacky-tour-life” videos are the new way to promote songs and get people to either relate better to artists or be more envious. But the song was very different from the debut singles we’ve heard Brown drop in the past. No pop-heavy jams best suited for dancing, nothing fun, just Brown being honest about his issues with the industry, those who come in and out of his life and the perils of being an entertainer in the public eye, especially one as controversial as he is. Maybe that’s why he curses so much in the track–he’s getting some things off of his chest. A mix of singing (some with auto-tune unfortunately) and rapping, the song definitely isn’t bad, but I will say that all the F-bombs and N-words are a distraction. But aside from that, we would choose to play it. What about you? Check out the video below and let us know if it’s a pass or play for you m’dears.

*Note: Please excuse some of the language, there’s no clean version of the video up as of yet.

    I tried, but couldn’t get passed the first three lines. This is not a strong enough single.

    I liked it I’ve always been team chris brown since he debuted boys dope ppl dont know him personally dont believe all the bs u c n hear theres a reason 4 everything. Hell he’s living his life doing him n ppl r going 2 hate because they can’t do it like him.


      NO……People are going to refrain from supporting him because he is nowhere near remorseful for his actions and he continues to behave in a way that says he isn’t…..

      The man is talented. No question about that. His singing and dancing are great! Chris Brown the artist is cool for the most part but chris the human is a loser. But how can you be so ride or die for a little boy stuck in a mans body?this boy says he’s sorry 24/7. Theres always something new thats bs that CHRIS gets himself involved in. People would be over the rihanna thing but he STILL acts crazy and violent. He dressed up as the Taliban for Halloween?!? Wtf who does that! Halloween or not..idgaf…thats disrespectful to all those who suffered from 9/11.

    Chris only has himself to blame for how things have turned out.
