Yesterday, American President Donald Trump delivered his first State Of The Union Speech. A few hours ago, Chris Brown followed suit with his own. The Heartbreak On A Full Moon singer wasted little time in sharing this smooth new single, further solidifying himself as one of music's most prolific talents. In fact, one might be inclined to believe that Chris Brown doesn't need sleep, or even sustenance; he simply lives in the booth. And while the title might suggest that "State Of The Union" is Chris Brown attempting to go political, the track is more concerned with seeking social harmony.
Over a breezy, throwback beat, Chris Brown keeps the optimism alive, singing lines like "it's time for everybody to live and love, and settle up your problems, just go ahead and let God in." And while unbridled musical joy is admittedly not for everyone, it's pretty refreshing to hear a positive message every once in a while.
It's time for everybody to live and love,
And settle up your problems, just go ahead and let God in
Cause he got us, yeah
Tired of runnin' from the police,
Never fuckin' over my homies
