Chris Brown Joins Fabolous On Naughty New Single ‘She Wildin’!


R&B singer Chris Brown is taking this time in the positive side of the limelight and running with it. Although it’s been quite some time since he’s been in the media this long for things other than trouble, it’s very refreshing to see the young singer have the spotlight on him for his musical contributions again.

On the brink of starting his joint tour with Trey Songz, Breezy has been lending his vocals to many of his famous friends and their projects. This time, he jumps on New York rapper Fabolous‘ single “She Wildin” from his most recent release, The Young OG Project. Sampling the Nas and Braveheart 2000 hit song “Oochie Wally” (which Eric Bellinger also sampled in his newest release), the duo gives the original a run for its musical money.

Take a listen to Breezy and Loso lay it down after the jump!
