Ray J and Chris Brown Will Respond to Kanye West’s “Famous” Video With a Song of the Same Name
Ray J is coming out with a new album soon called Raydemption, and the album will include a song called "Famous" featuring Chris Brown that responds to Kanye West's "Famous" video, reports Billboard.
The single (and accompanying music video) will reportedly have the same name as Kanye's song, which featured naked mannequins of Ray J and C. Breezy, among other celebrities. Ray J tells Overheard, “You can’t fault me and Chris for responding to all the things that have been done about us [in the media] over the last few months.”
Raydemption will be released exclusively as a visual album on the streaming service platform LookHu.com. LookHu CEO Byron Booker says Raydemption will be "a controversial record in which Ray sets the record straight, reclaims his power and moves forward." Booker also says that, on the new song, Chris Brown is "going to be talking about his rendezvous with certain celebrities in his past, as well as certain women that he helped catapult to fame."
This isn't the first time Ray J has made a music video directed at Kanye. One can't help but think about Ray J's 2013 song "I Hit it First," a track that made a splash, because Ray J was obviously referencing his past relationship with Kim Kardashian, who is now married to Kanye West. The music video for "I Hit it First" even features a Kim K look-alike.
Back in August, Ray J was "livid" at 'Ye for using his name on-stage at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. If you remember, Kanye called Ray J “Brandy’s little sister” back in 2013 after Ray J released “I Hit it First.” Because Kanye blasted Ray J for the “I Hit it First” video a few years back, Ray J was pissed that ‘Ye used the Kim sextape to his advantage with his video for “Famous” off The Life of Pablo. It's all a very confusing mess.
