Justin Bieber and Chris Brown: Surprise Collaboration

leave a comment »

I signed into YouTube today, and sadly, this video was on the main page as one of the currently most popular videos. Chris Brown made a surprise appearance at one of Bieber’s recent concerts in Sydney, Australia to perform his new hit single “Look at Me Now.”

Personally, I think the song is even a little too rap-inspired for Chris Brown since he’s usually more of an R&B singer for the most part, producing high-energy songs rather than slower rap. Then, throw in the pop/R&B teen sensation, Justin Bieber, live on stage, and it will create a mass of musical confusion.

Seeing the two dance together and sing this song while trying to put on their swag was just baffling to me. They put on a good show together, and the crowd was going wild over the surprise. However, seeing them trying to match one another’s hip hop dance moves was definitely an interesting sight. I’ll give them credit for showmanship, but the combination of the supposedly wholesome popstar and Chris Brown, who is trying to come back after domestic abuse charges on Rihanna, really didn’t make much sense to me.

Let’s just hope that the parents of the tween girls were all right with the surprise!
