Chris Brown - Yeah 3X

Song Info:

"Yeah 3x" is a song by American recording artist Chris Brown, taken from his upcoming fourth studio album, F.A.M.E.. It was released as the lead single from the album on October 25, 2010. The uptempo dance-pop song was written by Chris Brown, DJ Frank E, Kevin McCall and Amber "SeVen" Streeter, with DJ Frank E also responsible for the song's production. Brown recorded "Yeah 3x" for his pop audience, because he felt he had been doing a lot of mix-tapes and urban records.

Critics praised the song for its club feel, and with some noting its similarities to Brown's 2008 single "Forever". An accompanying music video, directed by Colin Tilley showcases Brown in various dance sequences in a neighbourhood, and also features cameo appearances from Teyana Taylor, Kevin McCall and hip hop duo Future Funk, from the fifth season of America's Got Talent. Critics praised the video for being "fun", "kid-friendly" and for showcasing Brown's dancing talent. It was compared to Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel" video clip (1987), and Janet Jackson's "Alright" video clip (1990).

Aside from amassing one million digital sales, "Yeah 3x" peaked at number fifteen on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number fourteen in Canada. Internationally, the single topped the New Zealand Singles Chart, and certified platinum there by the RIANZ. Additionally, it has charted in the top ten in countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia, where it certified double platinum by the ARIA.

Music Video Info:

The song's music video was directed by Colin Tilley[35] and was shot at the Universal Studios.[36] It features cameo appearances from Teyana Taylor, Kevin McCall and hip hop duo Future Funk, from the fifth season of America's Got Talent.[36] The video showcases Brown in various dance sequences, of which he performs different types of dance forms, including tricking, break dancing, and popping. The music video premiered on MTV on October 21, 2010.[37]

The opening scene begins with Brown walking down a street wearing a blue hoodie suit and white sneakers. The scene then shifts over to a backdrop of old-timey storefronts and brownstones, where a young boy tells his friends, he's bored. As the song starts to play, Brown makes an acrobatic entrance, as he flips onto the top of a truck, dressed in a black vest, trousers and a tie.[37] Another young boy then calls out "Hey it's Chris Brown", and kids in the neighborhood begin cheering, as Brown is there to save the day. He then leads the mob of kids, teenages and older residents down the street as he sings the song. When the first chorus nears, Brown begins his first dance sequence with two male back-up dancers, as the mob watch from behind.[37] Together, they pull off high mid-air twirls, each seemingly jumping several feet above the ground.[37]

Brown then follows a woman down the street as he continues to sing the song. He then runs into his next group of dancers, featuring four women dressed in tank tops and suspenders.[37] After that, Brown then runs to a storefront called "Popin Pete's", which is named after the man who Brown dances with to the next chorus.[37] During the bridge, Brown is dressed in an '80s-era blazer wearing a gold chain, and in one scene, he is standing beside Kevin McCall, holding a shiny boombox. Brown rallies the crowd from a fire escape just before someone opens a fire hydrant and unleashes a spray of water onto the crowd.[37] In the final scene, Brown appears in a peach jacket baring his chest, doing the last dance sequence with male and female back-up dancers at a block party. As the video ends, Brown spins, stops and looks off into the distance.
