This old-school-style R&B track produced by Ryan Leslie had bloggers and fans chattering as soon as it debuted on the net. This was because it appeared to make several references to the breakdown of Brown's relationship with Rihanna all in verse two. They include:
1. A reference to Canadian rapper Drake and the rumored romance between him and Rihanna ("While we're on Drake/ Say that you're the best he's ever had") - a romance Drake has always denied. Brown also alludes to "rumors coming" and says he "knows what you keep in shadow." The singer gets more explicit in the chorus, when he croons, "Since I thought I found my woman/ There were other guys who thought the same thing about it/ Like damn, you let me down, down, down/ 'Cause you're famous, girl, for breaking hearts."
2. Brown suggests that violence between them went both ways ("You were the first to play the game, though").
3. Brown also sings, "Sorry I bust the windows out your car," possibly referring to reports that he smashed the window of a vehicle during an argument with Rihanna that occurred before the assault in early 2009.
4. Brown admits, "I might have cheated at the beginning," and cryptically adds, "I was wrong for writing 'Disturbia
,' " a reference to the Rihanna track he wrote for her Good Girl Gone Bad
album. He then continues, "But I meant it in 'Forever'/ We were supposed to be together/ And I can't let you go." "Forever" most likely refers to his own hit of the same name
that spawned a viral wedding video.
