So as you can tell from looking at my social media feed, I’ve been having a Chris Brown inspired week. With a new obsession for the great dance moves featured in Tempo by Chris Brown (even though the music video’s concept for the song is quiet shocking), I decided to do a backtrack on one of my old favorites.
A song that was popular during my early teens and was the song for every young couple out there. With You by Chris Brown was released in 2007 and topped quite a few charts. The song is a certified gold and platinum hit!
The song is written about teenage love, presented in the lyrics “And now I know I can’t be the only one/ I bet there’s hearts all over the world tonight / With the love in their life who feel the way I feel when I’m with you.” The video was also co-directed by Chris and mainly focuses on the singer. He explained that the reason for this is that he wanted to show the more mature side of himself within the song. He went on to say that his routine in the video is not choreographed, it is just a freestyle routine for fans to see what he is naturally capable of.
My personal opinion, I really like this song. It takes me back to my teenage years when Chris Brown didn’t have a kid (Although Royalty is the cutest celebrity kid ever!) and when he didn’t have this new bad-ass player rep, oh and he also wasn’t a jailbird or using vulgarities in every song. I’m not saying that he makes awful music nowadays, because he definitely makes some great hits although, this song is from back when music was simple yet soul touching.
