Chris Brown Recruits Lil Wayne, Swizz Beatz For Comeback Single “I Can Transform Ya”

56666706“I Can Transform Ya,” Chris Brown’s first single reportedly off his upcoming Graffiti — and his first official new song since he assaulted Rihanna in February — was revealed yesterday on the singer’s Mechanical Dummy Website. Officially, it’s credited to Chris Brown featuring Lil Wayne and Swizz Beatz, but the producer and Weezy practically overpower the R&B singer on the song, which rumbles to a backing track featuring whistle blasts, metallic clanks and crunchy guitar riffs. Beatz delivers his most rocking, metallic beat yet, almost as if the tune was destined for Weezy’s own delayed Rebirth.

While some leaked songs suggested that Brown’s comeback single might be more reflective or apologetic in tone, instead Brown sing-raps about his ability to “transform ya” by wielding an American Express Black Card and buying some lucky girl anything she wants. Lil Wayne is in full-on alien mode and the track’s MVP, with Weezy name-checking both Optimus Prime and Voltron, possibly the first time that cartoon has been referenced in a rap since Raekwon did it on Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
