Chris Brown Is “Treading Water” In Sensitive New Track

Apr 11th, 2011 // 9 Comments

After teaming up with a Jonas Bro in the studio, Chris Brown continues his streak of inoffensiveness by recording a mid-tempo love ballad. The tune, “Treading Water”, will reportedly end up on Breezy’s F.A.M.E. follow-up, Fortune, and it’s about as far away from stripper odes as you can get. Listen below.

“Don’t want to drown in a river of your sorrow / I will swim a thousand miles just for one minute to see you smile / Treading water,” sings Breezy. A little bit corny, a little sweet, and definitely more SFW than a lot of his recent tracks.

Brown embracing his sensitive side may help him tone down his aggressive public persona, but he’s got a long way’s to go before he convinces GQ to let him grace the cover of their magazine (via Necole Bitchie):


In a question asked last December (but uncovered recently), someone asks “Has Chris Brown ever been on the GQ cover? And if not, when will he?”

The mag’s answer? “Might be a while. It is Gentlemen’s Quarterly, after all, not Ironically-Named-Magazine-That-Knowingly-Puts-Domestic-Abusers-On-It’s-Cover Quarterly.”

    My response to GQ who cares any way. Chris is doing his thing musically. Thats what matters to his fans.

    If his album FAME is supposed to stand for Forgiving All My Enemies, why would he name the next album Fortune?
