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.
