While we’re awaiting Chris Brown ‘s follow-up to “Fine China,” the singer offers fans a remix to Mario’ s brand new single “ Somebody Else .”

In his version, Chris goes from crooning a sorrowful “you left me” to aggressively rapping, “You let him fuck? I don’t buy that / This tommy next to my gut make ‘em lift up and turn this shit to Iraq / My shit blazin’ / Tell me where you hot at / She can’t save you / I know where you hide at…”

He ends the song with “always claimin’ I’m a fuck-nigga, but it’s funny how you trust niggas.”

The original, which features Nicki Minaj , is produced by Polow Da Don and will appear on Mario’s forthcoming fifth studio album, Restoration , set for September 2013 release.

Chris’ They Don’t Know ,” featuring the late Aaliyah is his next single from his new album titled X , out July 16, 2013.
