Only five days until Chris Brown’s highly anticipated album X releases and a track leak has already emerged. If giving us all the previous singles weren’t enough, his Kendrick Lamar feature “Autumn Leaves” found its way on the Internet.
Playing with the soundboard in the studio, Brown’s voice can be faintly heard through the echoes of the delayed track which is synonymous to the message of the song. Taking a page out of his unpredictable relationships, the r&b crooner lyrically opens up about the struggles of moving on from a long-term relationship.
It may be Chris’ song but Kendrick (again) makes it his. Slowly but surely Lamar attacks the song with his show stealing lyrics. Hopping on mid-way, the Cali native uses Titanic metaphors in his delivery.
“And so Titanic, what the f**k would you do to a critic, my n**ga? Yeah, yeah, tell me, when doves cry do you hear ‘em love? Do you hear ‘em love? Do you hear ‘em? And if my ship go down tell me who will abort?”
Press play to hear the leaked “Autumn Leaves.”
