Michael Brown, I mean Chris Brown channeled his music mentor Michael Jackson for his latest video “Fine China.” The action-packed clip, backed by a “Romeo & Juilet” storyline, is reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s famous “Smooth Criminal” dance scene (minus the mind-blowing lean) and “Beat It”–with the karate theatrics.
Brown finds himself fighting for the love of his Chinese girlfriend, whose forbidden by her father to see her bad boy boyfriend Chris Brown. The visuals may be cheesy, but the actual song is fresh and an indicator of what we can expect from Chris’s forthcoming album “X.”
“I wanted to go with a film director to set the mood and bring that artistic side to it. I’m not one who always loves to stand in front of the camera with flashy cars and big booty girls all the time,” Breezy explained to Billboard. “In this video, you’ll see me taking care of the girl, doing gentlemanly things—showing another side of me. I know my female audience sees it. But the naysayers might say, ‘No, that’s not him.’”
