Chris Brown Samples Red Rat; Collabs With Konshens
It seems like Chris Brown is becoming more a fan of Dancehall music this year. The artiste has released two singles so far that have been heavily influenced by Dancehall artistes. Brown, who has always been a fan of Dancehall music (earlier collabs with elephant Man and Sean Paul), released his single "Privacy" which samples Red Rat's "Tight Up Skirt".
