"I Can Transform Ya," previously known as "Transformer," is the first official song Brown has released since his February altercation with then-girlfriend Rihanna and also the lead single from his forthcoming album, Graffiti. He premiered the song on his Web site, MechanicalDummy.com. Shortly after the song hit the Web, it was on the radio and one of the trending topics on Twitter.
Over a frenetic Swizz beat featuring pounding drums and a synthesized guitar riff, Brown sings about introducing a young lady to the high life.
"I can transform ya, I can transform ya/ Anything you want, I got it, I can get it for you/ You my baby girl, so you know I get it for you," Brown sings on the hook, before Swizzy joins him for the latter half of the chorus. "Shoes, you got it/ Bags, you got it/ Cars, you got it/ Money, you got it/ I can transform ya, anything you want, I can get it for you."
Brown recently tweeted that he's finished recording Graffiti. Swizz Beatz spoke to MTV News about working with Brown and said the singer has "something to prove." The producer predicted a smash when he discussed "I Can Transform Ya" and said Wayne delivered one of his best verses.
"I can turn you from a human to a Carter/ Take you off the bench, turn you into a starter," Weezy raps. "Then I take you home and put you on a charter/ Then my car turns into a charter/ And we can fly to wherever you never thought of/ I take you to where it's warmer and then dress off like it's a warm-up."
"The Wayne part is just nothing to talk about," Swizz boasted. "He really showed his a-- on this one. It's probably the best feature verse since the 'It's Me [Bitches]' remix."
