New music from Chris Brown made its way to the Internet earlier this week, and the bubblegum-pitching heartthrob is not pleased about it. “I’m mad that it’s leaked,” Brown told the AP when asked about “Electric Guitar” leaking. “The record’s not finished. It’s supposed to be me and Rihanna’s duet.” Which would make sense: the version of “Electric Guitar” that leaked had a few bits that only used a buried-by-the-background scratch vocal, which one would assume were waiting for Rihanna to lay her vocals over. A YouTube embed of “Electric Guitar” is after the jump.
“I just wanted to go totally left and kind of weird, and that’s what I threw at her,” Brown said of the song. I guess “more vocoding than T-Pain’s entire catalog over a piano part that sounds like it’s been lifted wholesale from Coldplay’s ‘Clocks’” is something of a left turn for him, although given the LaChapellian depths Rihanna’s been heading into lately I suspect she might give him a pat on the head and an “a” for effort, you know?
