Chris Brown Brings Aaliyah Back for ‘Don’t Think They Know’ Video
For several weeks now, there has been talk regarding Chris Brown recording a song using vocals of the late singer Aaliyah. Today, we get the opportunity to hear the finished product in a video for the track, called ‘Don’t Think They Know.’ According to Chris, the message is to uplift those struggling with issues of poverty and to put an end to gun violence.
The video features a stark contrast in color, emphasizing red and blue. Appropriately enough, the video is shot in Compton, Calif., with Chris walking the streets of the neighborhood and hanging out with a group of kids.
At the end, we find out the video is dedicated to the memory of the deceased, including Aaliyah and Chris’ friend Lil Frogg, who passed away this year.
Aaliyah appears in the video in a hologram-like form on a wall behind Breezy. He shows off his footwork while she also demonstrates the signature dance moves fans had grown to love during her career.
