[artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist] debuted the third single from his upcoming Graffiti album on Thursday, a ballad titled "Sing Like Me." The song, which Brown tweeted is "for all the ladies," is an R. Kelly-esque slow jam that finds the singer bragging about his skills with females over a classic 808 drum-machine beat and Asian-sounding strings.
"Soon as I step out the whip, they spot me," begins the song, which is streaming on Brown's site. "Girls snapping pictures like the paparazzi/ So many different type of women I'm into/ And I can't take 'em all with me is my only issue."
In the chorus, Brown brags, "I gotta girl singin' like me."
The cover of the song shows the singer — who is launching a "fan appreciation" tour on Saturday in Houston — sporting a retro boy-singer look, with tailored black pants, shiny black boots, black turtleneck, red cardigan and sunglasses. The styling is in keeping with the look of the Graffiti album cover.
So far, Brown has unleashed the ballad "Crawl" and the club track "I Can Transform Ya," which are currently vying for time at radio with a trio of singles from ex-girlfriend Rihanna, who has also dropped three tracks from her upcoming album, Rated R.
While "Crawl" appeared to be a plea from Brown for forgiveness and a second try with Rihanna — whom he pleaded guilty to assaulting in February — the new song finds Brown back in seductive lothario mode, fantasizing about leaving the club with at least five women, none of whom he likes enough to "put a ring on it."
Explaining the barrage of new releases, Brown tweeted, "I'm trying to give all the fans more music, that's why I put out so many singles."
