After a few delays, Chris Brown debuts the video for “Don’t Think They Know,” the second single off his upcoming album X (July 16). A shirtless Breezy rides through Compton and kicks it with kids in the neighborhood in the black-and-white clip.

“[I’m] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I’m from,” explained Chris.

The song features vocals from the late Aaliyah, who appears via a hologram. “Hope this new single inspires change and unity! Life is a Gift. I love doing what I do. All the little things count!” he tweeted.

The video is dedicated to those we’ve lost including Aaliyah and his friend Lil Frogg.

Chris Brown took it to the ‘hood while shooting the video for his new single “They Don’t Know” featuring Aaliyah. A shirtless Breezy stormed 60th Street and Cedar Block in L.A. with his gang and kicked it with some kids in the neighborhood in the behind-the-scenes footage.

He later changed into an Angels jersey as his crew stood behind him holding candles in a dimly-lit warehouse. He put on his director’s hat once again, calling the shots alongside his Riveting Entertainment team.

“[I’m] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I’m from,” he said.

The song, which appears on his upcoming album X (July 16), was originally set to drop last week, but it has since been delayed.

“Hope this new single inspires change and unity! Life is a Gift. I love doing what I do. All the little things count!” he tweeted.

Hit the block with Breezy.

Chris Brown is calling on an angel for his new single, “They Don’t Know.” The R&B superstar has announced that Aaliyah will be featured on the follow-up to “Fine China.”

The song contains never-before-heard vocals from the late singer. “I got something special for my fans. It’s called ‘They Don’t Know,’” Chris told reporters at the BET Awards 2013 press conference on Tuesday. “All new stuff that’s never been heard before.”

He shot a video for the song in L.A. over the weekend. “I shot it in the ‘hood. I went to 60th Street and Cedar Block,” he said, while explaining the concept.

“[I’m] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I’m from. I’m from Virginia, but everybody comes from a broken home or being broke—I remember when I was.”

“They Don’t Know” will appear on Chris’ sixth album X, due July 16. In addition to Aaliyah, the guest list includes Nicki Minaj and Kendrick Lamar, plus production from Timbaland, Polow Da Don, Danja, Pharrell, and Drumma Boy.
