Chris Brown Rings In 2011 With “Look At Me Now”

Jan 3rd, 2011 // 8 Comments

As Chris Brown looks ahead to a new year full of promise, you’d expect him to be sharpening his sound in anticipation of that comeback hit, or perhaps to be pursuing new (or at least new-old) directions, as he did on his playful In My Zone 2 mixtape. What you would not expect is for him to try sounding like a second-rate Soulja Boy Tellem, which is what he does in “Look At Me Now”, reportedly the first single from his upcoming — and possibly jumbo-sizeF.A.M.E. album. We missed this one amid a popping New Year‘s weekend, but it’s not too late to check out the vapid track Breezy chose to ring in 2011. Listen below.

Over a beat that evokes the Dougie, Brown sings that he’s still riding high (in a yellow Lamborghini, to boot) before venturing off into a typically tasteless discussion of his manhood. If the song has a highlight, it must be the razor sharp verse from Busta Rhymes, sounding more nimble than we’ve heard him in forever. Not even Lil Wayne’s rhymes quite compare, though if he’s feeling rusty, we’d understand.

In the end, though, this song is supposed to declare the return of Chris Brown, and no matter how much he may want to be seen in a new light, we’re guessing this isn’t it.

    I heard look at me now yesterday on satelite radio and it was AWESOME. I love it. Great voice, beat, everything about it is GREAT! :)

  2. Is this some early April fools joke, I mean honestly this is terrible anytime you can compare an artist to Soulja Boy theres already been a wrong turn of events.

    This song, his career its crap. Nothing more needs to be said

    Haters! say hi to his dick! Chris brown is a bundle of amazing talents, one day you guys will catch up with him. Souja Boy isnt a bad artist either, its just a style that makes him far too much money (dont hate the player, hate the game). Chris Brown is an all round entertainer and this track is a side to him. He isnt a narrow 1 talent artist like most of those stars you cherish. He has far too much talent and thats whats troubling all you biased people. In your blog, you didnt even appreciate an RnB/Pop superstar that raps that well? Seriously, dont bother write about him, if you have nothing nice to say.

  4. Sorry we all cant be as tone def and delusional as you I’m not sure how the “he makes alot of money” argument makes any sense here, who cares about how much money anyone is making a crappy song is a crappy song, a crappy rapper is a crappy rapper.

    A mediocre R&B singer will make a mediocre rapper at best and its easy to say he missed the mark. Sorry your so offended by the truth.

    And honestly a little bit of bias is in order “some” times.

  5. The bigger problem of this song is who he chose to feature with. If Chris Brown wants to showcase any possible rap skills, he should not have chosen to try and be on the same track as Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. Both rappers eclipse him so much that it’s not even close to funny. By comparison, Chris’s MC skills look even MORE flawed in comparison.
    It’s supposed to be a Chris Brown song but in the end, he’s the least memorable thing on his own song. It may sell a lot of records, but it won’t get him the recognition he’s looking for.

  6. Oh man. I’m sorry but the song is nothing special.

    The song KNOCKS! and it will do wonders for Dj’s,club goers and beat heads. .
    This song may not be the best but it is far from the worse.
    @ Rebellious Nerd he already has recognition and millions of fans.
    I doubt he’s sittin back saying this is the song that will catapault him to the top again.
    Only time will tell. And if he sells atleast 500k copies that’s telling us the PUBLIC is diggin it too..
