Many felt as if Chris Brown had sabotaged his career after the fight with Rihanna. Radio stations stopped playing his songs and fans lashed out. Two albums deep, Chris Brown was used to going double platinum. His 2009 effort failed to even land him a gold plaque.

Sensing he had to change things up, Chris Brown embraced his role as the bad guy. On the mixtape level, Brown released several songs. Among the songs he released was "Deuces," the one that landed him at the top of the charts. With a hit single, without trying, Chris Brown began recording a new album.

Chris Brown prepared to release F.A.M.E. early in 2011 and re-released "No BS." Along with an album version of "No BS," he also recorded "Look At Me Now," the first breakout hit from the album. Early in 2011, Chris Brown had three hit singles in radio rotation and he was far from done. In the middle of the spring, he released "She Ain't You," a Michael Jackson sample, with influences from SWV's own Jackson sample of "Human Nature."

Following the success of his album, Chris Brown spoke about how things have changed for him. Looking back on where he was and where he is now, Brown said he is proud of the success. His album has been out for five months and he has had four hits off the album, so far. While "She Ain't You" is not receiving the same type of play as his other singles, it is still receiving incredible buzz. Capitalizing off the mid-1990s sound, Brown reached out to SWV for a mash-up of their version of Jackson's sample with his.

The "She Ain't You (remix)" was released last week and features SWV.
