Chris Brown released his new music video for “Grass Ain’t Greener” today (August 26), and the video finds him in one of his favorite spots, the strip club.
This particular strip club, however, is not like the others. Once Brown talks his friends into entering with him, they’re caught up in a futuristic-type setting that’s part club, part house party and part strip club.
Even though Brown sings about “green,” the video is all done up in neon pinks to lend it an extra-seedy and extra-surreal feeling.”That grass ain’t greener on the other side/ I been there/ Oh yeah, I been there,” he sings on the chorus, lamenting how much things have changed with a girl he used to love.
Brown shows off his slick dance moves with two sequences that literally shake things up. Thanks to a special camera technique, the shot shakes every time Brown and his dancers stomp on the floor. It’s some of his finest footwork yet.
