Chris Brown's new song How I Feel goes into surprising detail regarding his on-again-off again torrid relationship with R&B star Rihanna. The song, which will appear on his upcoming album, Fortune, leaked on Fri. March 9, 2012.
Rihanna and Chris Brown have been making headlines ever since RiRi left her ex-and-possibly-secret-boyfriend's dressing room at the Grammys sporting a coy smile and looking somewhat disheveled. Recent rumors spread by RiRi's friends suggest that the two have been secretly dating for a year and are planning to marry by the end of March. Meanwhile RiRi is engaged in a full on social media war with Brown's current girlfriend, Karrueche, and Brown is facing a possible arrest for reportedly stealing a fan's iPhone after she snapped a photograph of him leaving a Miami club, and may end up in jail for violating the terms of his parole.
How I Feel is an introspective song that explores the singer's life and attempts to explain his relationship with Rihanna.
Nineteen, a n---a went through a tragedy, he sings. Three years, a n---a just found a better me. Yeah, you might find another lover, but you always started with Breezy like the letter B.
Brown continues his defiant refusal to consider the wave of criticism that has hit him from all directions following his performance at the Grammys.
I'm gonna keep on living my life from day to day/learn from my mistakes, he sings. Ain't never gonna do a 60 minute interview/'Cause all you want to do is twist my words up.
Chris Brown has refused to do any interviews since his Grammy performance and the subsequent backlash from fans and celebrities alike. However, he has stayed vocal on Twitter, fending off attacks and tirelessly promoting his own music.
Brown has also found himself at the center of a very public love triangle consisting of Breezy, Rihanna and Vietnamese model Karrueche. The two lovely ladies have traded barbs through Twitter and Facebook this past week in a feud that has confused many of their fans.
