Chris Brown and Cassie are playing estranged lovers in the remorseful scenes of 'Crawl' music video.
While Rihanna's "Russian Roulette" music video apparently captures the risk and danger of her past relationship with him, Chris Brown himself focuses on his effort to move on after their infamous February altercation as captured in "Crawl" music video. Cassie is portraying the leading lady.
Though it is easy to draw line between the altercation and the video through its remorseful look, Chris insists that it is not just about Rihanna. "So being able to express the feelings, it was like, probably one of the best [records I've done.] But it was more than me trying to do a record that meant crawl to love, crawl back to love. Meaning whether it's from your negative situations, whether it's from any problems you've dealt with, like anybody's situation," he told MTV.
"Mine being my personal situation with shorty, but for anybody, for being inspired as far it being the war or a death in the family, whether it's anything, anybody just crawl back to love. 'Cause love conquers everything. Love, at the end of the day, makes everybody happy."
"Crawl" is set to appear in Chris Brown's upcoming third studio album "Graffiti" which is going to hit the market on December 8.
