Chris Brown's new single sounds like a pretty bad career move. After crying at the BET Awards and being accused of faking it, one might think Brown would try some humility as he returns to the stage. Instead, "Deuces" makes him seem like a punk that takes no responsibility for his actions.
The lyrics in "Deuces" point to a juvenile and cavalier attitude towards women, and abuse. Among the lyrical gems Brown reiterates that he's "moving on to something better" and "the other chick I'm with never complained." Furthermore, "f**k love."
But that's not the worst of it.
Chris Brown decides it's a good idea to reference Ike and Tina Turner, but not in a "Oh wow, I never wanted to be like this, and aren't I the bad guy?" way. More in a, "Won't this sound badass?" manner. Specifically he says, “‘I finally noticed it, it finally hit me. Like Tina did Ike in the limo, it finally hit me.”
Listen for yourself.
What do you think? Is Chris Brown trashing Rihanna?
