Chlöe Bailey’s song “How Does It Feel” with Chris Brown is here, alongside a new video.
The visual sees the two singers playing the role of a broken-up couple. The song will appear on Bailey’s forthcoming debut album, In Pieces, which is slated for a March 31 release.
The pair’s collaboration has proven to be a controversial one. Last week, following Bailey’s announcement of the song, the internet went to war, wondering why the young singer would choose to work with Brown, who has a long history of abusing women. Brown eventually went toe-to-toe with 3LW and Cheetah Girls singer Kiely Williams, who called Breezy out on Twitter.
“Let him come out with his own record—so genius, so captivating that it makes us all forget HE BEATS WOMEN. He can’t so he wont. So what does he do?” Williams wrote in response to Bailey’s announcement. “He slowly creeps back into the mainstream by getting small nods for features on Black Women’s merit. Black women who are more talented, more worthy, but give him the okay.”
Brown soon caught wind of Williams’ comment. And while that seemed to be the only remark she made, Brown threw multiple shots at her on Instagram, where he made fun of her supposed lisp and called her “wack.” He also pulled Blueface into the situation, commenting on the rapper’s own history of abuse with girlfriend Chrisean Rock, to which Blueface responded, telling Brown, “you gotta play the cards that you was dealt.”
