Don’t be upset with us about the headline of this post—blame Chris Brown for naming a song “Deuces.” After attempting a brief career as a rapper on “Holla At Me,” Brown handed off rapping duties to Tyga for the slow, down-tempo “Deuces” off the pair’s upcoming mixtape. We’ll leave it up to you to decide whether the bitter, women-hating track is about Rihanna or just females in general.
Chris Brown feat. Tyga and Kevin McCall – “Deuces”
“All that bullshit’s for the birds,” sings a very mellow Brown on the Kevin McCall-produced track. “Always hoping for the worst, waiting for me to fuck up. You regret the day when I find another girl, she’ll know what just I need, she’ll know just what I mean when I try to keep it drama free.”
Tyga continues the sentiment, rapping, “Thought it was true love, but you know women lie.”
Ouch. As damning as some of the lyrics are, this emotional jam is actually a step in the right direction for Brown, who shows off his smooth vocals. We wish the song picked up a bit more in the end, but if it’s between this and Chris trying to come off as a bad-ass rapper, we much prefer this.
What do you think? Do you like Chris all downbeat, or do you wish he’d pick up the pace and released another fun-loving “Forever”?
