Many have counted Chris Brown out, but the R&B wonder is slowly climbing his back into our playlists. After surprisingly splashing into the Billboard Hot 100 chart’s top 20 and topping the R&B chart for several weeks now with “Deuces,” a mid-tempo goodbye cut from his Fan of a Fan mixtape, this morning he debuted the feel-good lead single from his forthcoming FAME (an acronym for Forgiving All My Enemies) album, “Yeah 3X,” and its partnering video.
In it, an acrobatic Brown dances to the Euro-pop smash, flipping and popping through a block party as others join in the action. It’s genuinely a fun clip, absent of any overdone, sexed up R&B corniness. This could be as big as “Forever.” Check out the clip after the jump and let us know how you feel about it. FAME doesn’t have a set release date yet. But if the album boasts tracks as good as these, I hope it’s coming soon.
