Don't judge me, but I'm sort of digging Chris Brown's latest single, "I Can Transform Ya."

Brown's no fool--he recruited Lil' Wayne to drop a rizzap on the track, and the rapper dropped it like it's hot, helping make the song even catchier.

It's an electronic-infused R&B single, and Brown sounds confident as ever. It might even be considered a love song--he croons, "Need a ride, I can Range you up, money I can change you up."

See, ladies, Chris will buy your love all day long, since he's probably not getting a whole lot of action right now.

The song, off his new album, Graffiti, has already reached number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

What do you think--does Rihanna Beater deserve another hit, or are you boycotting the track? Or do you think Brown just always sucked to begin with?
