It looks like Chris Brown has teamed up with his protégé, Sevyn, again for her new single “Don’t Kill the Fun.” It was only a matter of time before the duo made an effort to score a follow up hit for their 2013 smash, “It Won’t Stop”, but is this the song to do it. The go-go inspired track, is rumored to has been produced by Rich Harrison who is responsible for Beyoncé’s “Drunk In Love’ and Amerie’s “1 Thing”. Harrison also worked with Streeter when she served as 1/4 of the short live r’nb girl group Rich Girl.
Sevyn Streeter and Chris Brown fans seem to be showing the song, released on iTunes, today love. It even merited tweets from actor, journalist and former 106 and Park host Terrence J, performer Ty Dolla $ign and actor turned singer/rapper (Tristan) Mack Wilds.
The r’n’b/ pop mash up has a horn heavy sound almost reminiscent of merengue and very similar to Ne-Yo’s “She Knows”. Probably not the sound expected from “nEXt” singer but maybe this change in direction will still be fun.
