Till I Die

Songfacts®:

  • This was released as the third single from Chris Brown's fifth album, Fortune. The song finds Brown showcasing his Hip-Hop chops alongside rappers Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa. The Danja-produced song premiered online on April 10, 2012.
  • Whilst Wiz and Sean's verses are about standard Hip-Hop topics - wealth, women and weed - Brown name-drops Sarah Palin ("I said Okay Sarah Palin, so I lay down and lay in."). Sean also alluded to the former Alaska governor and Vice-Presidential candidate on his verse for Kanye West's "Mercy," which was released the previous week.
  • Brown directed the song's weed-inspired music video himself, which was filmed in Los Angeles. We see Breezy cruising with Wiz, Sean and Snoop Dogg in his yellow Pontiac Parisienne. Look out also for Method Man and Redman as guests at the smoke party as well as comedians Jamie Kennedy and Andy Milonakis.
