MC Magic: Chris Brown's "Fine China" Is a "Feel Good" Record

Page 2 of 2

Discovering new music has always been one of my favorite things, all the way back to my DJ days, when a weekly box of 12-inch vinyl was the source of my ear candy fix.

These days not much has changed, except the way I search for new music. There's nothing like the thrill of picking up a newly released record, or even better, one that's yet to be discovered, and sense that it has a real hit quality. I've heard that word of mouth is the best form of advertising, and there's a lot of truth to that. I share my musical findings with everyone, and I want to share one with you.

Last night while searching for goodies online, I found the brand-new Chris Brown single, "Fine China." In addition to being a great-sounding "feel good" record, Chris and his camp have taken the extra effort to create a stunning mini-movie music video to accompany the song. In 2013, this can actually make or break a song.

In the film, a sharply dressed Chris Brown scoops up his cute Asian sweetheart just in time to save her from a heated argument with her father. It's the classic tale of a boy not being good enough for daddy's girl, and Brown's soon embroiled in a conflict with daddy, who just so happens to be the leader of the "TRIAD." So, CB fights for her, making time to bust a few Michael Jackson-inspired moves on the dance floor.
