"In 1999 most y'all didn’t know me," Chris Brown sings nostalgically in his new song "Home." Back then Brown didn't have the glaring spotlight of fame, his ongoing probation hearings or his tumultuous relationship with his on-and-off-again girlfriend Rihanna.
Then again, back then Chris Brown also didn't have private jets, arenas of screaming fans or parties on yachts—all of which you see in the just-released video for "Home." The piece is a three-minute montage of moments from his worldwide Carpe Diem Tour, which hit such cities as Amsterdam, Germany and Dubai.
It's an interesting juxtaposition: The video shows Brown’s high-glam life, but the song yearns for a simpler time. And while Brown sings, "I wish I could go back," you gotta admit, that private jet seems pretty nice.
