Clean Up

  • This Old track finds Brown reliving his troublesome past, when he was on the streets dealing drugs, before coming to terms with the fact that he's simply come "too far to f--- it up." "Making that album was me getting [those experiences] out and then looking back on it. It was almost like therapy to me," he told MTV News. "I guess the world is my psychiatrist. I just tell them my problems and then they help me out."
