KYLE enlists Chris Brown for the “What It Is (Remix)”

The original version made landfall back in May of this year


Earlier this year in May, KYLE dropped his “What It Is” track to hold folks over during the middle of the quarantine. Now, the rapper circles back around to unleash a fresh new remix of the song, equipped with a verse from none other than Chris Brown. In the new Breezy verse on the song, he comes through with the feels of when things start to fade away:

“I will always be your friend, for sure though. With or without comments on your photo, if you abort the mission, leave a n***a Han Solo. I’ll still wear your ring around my neck like I was Frodo. Once again, I’m gettin’ on this plane. And the sh*t you textin’ got me feelin’ strange. Yeah, yeah, ‘cause you don’t feel the same. And, girl, I’m sorry that it feels that way.”

See You When I am Famous!!!!!!!!!!!! was preceded by the singles “YES!,” “Money Now,” “Bouncin,” and the aforementioned “What It Is.” The project sees 12 new tracks from the Ventura star, along with collaborations alongside a slew of artists, including Tyga, Rico Nasty, Rich The Kid, Trippie Redd, Bryson Tiller, Raphael Saadiq, and Too $hort.

A recent article quotes KYLE explaining why this collaboration coming into fruition is a dream come true for him:

“This song is special to me, not only because it’s my favorite song I made for this album, but also because working with Chris Brown has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid. I remember hearing my first Chris Brown song; I was probably in the sixth grade. He’s the epitome of what it means to be a superstar, which is something I aspire to be. Working in the studio with him was pretty nuts too because I got to see his process and I got to hear how he does the very thing that has inspired me for more than two decades.”
