Chris Brown Tries His Hand at Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me,’ with New Lyrics: Listen
By Marissa G. Muller
But while those artists have tried to improve on it, in their own ways, Chris Brown knows that the original is pretty flawless.
So instead of doing a straight cover, Breezy went with a more comedic approach, adding his own ridiculous lyrics to the ballad.
Brown posted his rendition in a Instagram snippet with the fitting caption “Lol!”
The singer made the song undeniably his own subbing Smith’s original lyrics — “Oh, won’t you stay with me? / ‘Cause you’re all I need/ This ain’t love, it’s clear to see/ But darling, stay with me’— with “Oh won’t you stay with me / ‘Cause I bought your new weave/ Now I done spend my cheese / B***h, you owe me.”
Chances are that this won’t appear on Brown’s upcoming album X — out Sept. 16 — but, hey, you never know.
