How I Feel

Album: not released on an album (2012)
  • This introspective track details Brown witnessing his mother being abused, his evasion of the media after his violent assault on his then girlfriend, Rihanna, and the hardships of fame. Breezy concludes that though he will never forget what he did to his Bajan beau, he is determined to soar over his adversity and will, "keep on living my life from day to day, learn from my mistakes."
  • The song's music video finds Brown sitting in a private plane reflecting on the ups and downs of his life as he raps to his Apple laptop.
