Chris Brown’s ‘Crawl’ Makes Rounds on the ‘Net
Looks like Chris Brown and Rihanna are taking their troubled relationship past to wax. Just one day after Rihanna released ‘Russian Roulette,’ the first single off her upcoming album ‘Rated R,’ Brown’s ‘Crawl’ is making its rounds around the Internet.
‘Crawl,’ which is set to be Brown’s second single off his forthcoming project ‘Graffitti,’ is a bass-heavy ballad that seemingly sounds like yet another track aimed at professing his love for ex-girlfriend — and victim of February domestic assualt — Rihanna.
Brown begs for a second chance and reveals that he’s willing to “crawl” his way to an eventual rapprochement. “So we’ll crawl, until we can walk again,” Brown sings on the chorus. “Then we’ll run, until we’re strong enough to jump/ Then we’ll fly, until there is no wind/ So let’s crawl, crawl, crawl, back to love.”
While Brown leans towards sap and melancholy, Rihanna seems to be taking a darker/angrier approach with ‘Russian Roulette.’ “You can see my heart beating, you can see it through my chest/ I’m terrified, but I’m not leaving/ I know that I must pass this test,” Rihanna sings, “So just pull the trigger.”
In related Brown news, the 20-year-old singer will chat with radio personality Angie Martinez and debut the track on New York’s Hot 97 Wednesday.
‘Graffiti’ is due in stores and at online retailers on December 15.
