Time and time again we’ve heard Chris Brown say that his career has been heavily influenced by the legendary and deceased Michael Jackson. So how many times do we have to hear it before it is drilled in our brains? Apparently at least one more hot minute. In Brown’s new video for She Ain’t You, Chris channels Jackson with his exquisite dance moves and yes, even a fabulous sample. We’ve got the video here for you to peep. Trust me, it IS worth watching a couple times.
Remember the BET Awards where Brown broke down in tribute to his idol Michael Jackson? Yeah despite the controversy and the full-fledged water works, it was a decent performance. At any rate, we know that Chris loves Jackson. But obviously, Brown thinks we have short term memory loss and he wants us to know that Jackson is his biggest inspiration. In his new video She Ain’t You, Breezy makes it a point to address his love to Michael by a small message before the start of a few imitation Michael Jackson spins. His message read: “Dedicated to my biggest inspiration of all time. I Love You. R.I.P. Michael Jackson.”
Throughout the video Brown sports various ensembles, including a white suit and a black fedora, and let me just make it clear right now, Brown is undoubtedly THE greatest and most passionate dancer of our time. It is not just the fact that Brown can perform a few classic Jackson moves just as well as the legend, but one can see the inspiration. In this video, Brown dances his booty off and I was most definitely fixated on his feet.
In case you didn’t figure it out after watching the video, the song She Ain’t You samples Jackson’s Human Nature, one of my favorite MJ songs by the way.
Check out Brown’s new vid below She Ain’t You and then let me know what you think. Hot or not? Come on, don’t be shy! I’m thinking I just may watch it again and attempt some moves of my own. Has anyone seen my fedora? I’m about to cut a rug.
