Chris Brown Samples Aaliyah For New Single

Submitted by on May 15, 2013 – 9:10 amOne Comment

Aaliyah’s musical legacy continues to influence present day recording artists. During a press conference for the BET Awards on Tuesday, Chris Brown revealed that he’s sampled previously unheard vocals from the late R&B princess, who was killed in a plane crash in 2001.

The sample will be featured on “They Don’t Know”, a new single from Chris’ upcoming album X, set for release on July 16. A video for the song, which is being described as an Aaliyah tribute, was shot over the weekend in Compton, California. “I shot it in the hood,” Chris told reporters. “I went to 60th Street and Cedar Block. [I'm] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I’m from. I’m from Virginia, but everybody comes from a broken home or being broke — I remember when I was.”

X also features appearances by Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, and Timbaland, among others.
