'Don't Let Me Die', a single from Brown's new album, is the singer's ode for his ex-wife who died in February of drowning.
Bobby Brown, who has been doing some press appearances on television in the past few weeks, performed for the first time a single about ex-wife Whitney Houston. "Don't Let Me Die" was debuted live on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Wednesday, May 16, three months after Houston died.
In the song Brown spoke of how much love he got for her when they were married. "I didn't realize that every breath I took was from you/You were my air," he sang. Brown also admitted to his faults, singing "I guess I (messed) up pretty bad/I didn't know who you were/I didn't know what we had ...Now I'm stuck living in the past/Trying to get the pieces back/But I guess now you're gone."
Brown and Houston were married from 1992 to 2007 and had one daughter together. Brown is going to marry his longtime fiancee and mother of his young son Alicia Etheridge in Hawaii next month.
While talking to Ellen DeGeneres on her show earlier this week, Brown revealed what he will miss from Houston most. "Her voice," he told DeGeneres. "I mean, we get to hear it everyday but just to see her sing was amazing. Where she came from with it, was amazing. That's what I'm going to miss."
"Don't Let Me Die" is included in his new album "The Masterpiece" which is due June 5.
