As we recently reported Chris Brown is getting a lot of buzz for his Michael Jackson sampled song, “She Ain’t You.” This song  is currently the 4th single released off of his latest album, F.A.M.E., but is being treated almost as if it was like the album’s first. The very heavy Michael Jackson references allow much of the public to forget Chris’s past short comings as a person, and escape in a song they just enjoy.

 “She Ain’t You” samples SWV’s 1993 smash hit “Right Here (Human Nature Remix)” from the soundtrack of the film, Free Willy. SWV sampled Michael Jackson’s 1983 hit “Human Nature.” Both Michael’s and SWV’s singles had a huge impact on the charts, much of which is attributed to MJ’s album Thriller‘s mass appear as one of the best selling albums of all time.

”Human Nature” was the 5th single released from Thriller in 1983,. With that said, It still was able to reach number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 2 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary  chart, and number 27 on the R&B singles chart.

SWV’s remix of “Right Here” with the “Human Nature” sample recieved massive exposure for the same reasons. It topped the Rhythmic Top 40 Charrt, became one of the longest running R&B number one hits of 1993, and also reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100! Since the Free Willy Soundtrack was on Michael Jackson’s MJJ Music, it was obvious that the song was done in some what of a tribute fashion for the King Of Pop. Now that tradition continues not just in Chris Brown’s song that we reported on, but also the music video is heavily influenced by the gloved one as well.

The video is directed by Chris Brown’s long time music video collaborator, Colin Tilley. Throughout the video, Brown pays tribute to Michael Jackson. It opens with a dedication, saying

“Dedicated to my biggest inspiration of all time… I Love You. R.I.P. Michael Jackson. 08/29/58 – 06/25/09”

The video then shows Brown dressed in an ’80s-styled white suit with a fedora, similar to the outfit Jackson wore in his music video for “Smooth Criminal” from 1988. He can also then be seen performing many Jackson inspired dance  moves throughout.
