Chris Brown recently announced the next single off his upcoming album X, will be a song titled “They Don’t Know,” which surprisingly features unreleased vocals from Aaliyah on the hook. The R&B superstar recently went straight to the hood in L.A. to shoot the upcoming visual.
“I shot it in the ‘hood. I went to 60th Street and Cedar Block,” said Chris, while explaining the concept. “[I’m] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I’m from. I’m from Virginia, but everybody comes from a broken home or being broke—I remember when I was.”
In this unofficial behind the scenes clip, Chris is seen sitting amongst a group of young kids outside a school, and then shirtless with a group of thugs on the stairs of what looks to be a motel. We get to hear a longer preview of the record, mostly Aaliyah’s part, which sounds pretty good. Check out the footage below:
Chris comes in around 3:40.
