In the highly anticipated duet has a reggae beat and is sure to be an instant hit, “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” sounds like it has Chris Brown‘s all over the track. Check out the lyrics below and tell us what YOU think!
Rihanna: Singing About Chris Brown?
As you can probably tell by the song’s title, it’s all about being unable to quit a lover and always going back to a guy even though you know it’s the wrong decision. “I go back again / Fall off the train / Land in his bed,” Rihanna sings in the song’s second verse.
Some other Rihanna lines include “Repeat yesterday’s mistakes” and “I never seemed to act so stupid.”
Sound familiar? Rihanna and Chris had a tumultuous, seemingly never-ending relationship where she never seemed to be able to move on. Despite the horrible act of violence Chris committed against her, and his other run-ins with the law, Rihanna always stuck by his side. Until the relationship came to an end, and Rihanna was left with a broken heart.
But despite the content in “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” it seems like Rihanna is finally forgetting Chris. A source close to the Unapologetic singer told a US blog she’s planning on selling everything Chris gave her. “She doesn’t want anything to remind her of him going forward in the new year,” the source said.
“He put a lot of hurt in her heart and there’s a lot of damage there… She wants nothing to remember him by.”
So at least Rihanna’s following the lessons of her own songs! What do you think…
