Zendaya – Something New (ft. Chris Brown) [Single Premiere]
Budding teen pop starlet Zendaya turns promotion for her anticipated second studio album up a notch with the radio premiere of the first official single ‘Something New’ featuring Chris Brown.
Following the Timbaland-produced buzz track ‘Close Up’, the young talent drops the aptly titled ‘Something New’. Zendaya showcases her beguiling vocals on the Babyface-helmed mid-tempo pop groove foraying into perhaps her most provocative work to date considering going all the way with a guy she’s just met! Chris Brown gives the track some exposure as he handles the second verse to the TLC ‘Creep’-sampled track which draws comparisons to Pia Mia ‘F**k With U’.
Zendaya has been in the studio with Timbaland and Diane Warren working on the follow-up to her 2013 self-titled debut album. “I would say it’s the new wave of R&B,” she previously told MTV News. “It’s where I think it should be going, or it should be headed; it’s very old-school vibe, but it’s a new-age version.”
‘Something New’ will be available to download on Friday and is the first official single from Zendaya’s forthcoming second studio album due for release sometime in early 2016. Listen to the Chris Brown-assisted track below:
