Chris Brown Drops New Track ‘What Would You Do?’ One Day After Arrest for Suspicion of Assault With a Deadly Weapon

It appears being locked up gave Chris Brown some musical inspiration! The R&B singer dropped a new track on Wednesday, August 31, less than 24 hours after he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The aptly named “What Would You Do?” was released after Brown hinted on Instagram that a new tune was on its way.

“All this bulls–t, everything going on man, I’m just gonna turn the other cheek,” he said in a video post. “Drop some music.”

Brown, 27, was arrested at his Tarzana, California, home on Tuesday, after an hours-long police standoff. Beauty queen Baylee Curran claimed he had pointed a gun at her face, after she admired some diamond jewelry in his house.

Curran said she feared for her life, but Brown proclaimed his innocence in a foulmouthed video tirade, in which he slammed police for making him a victim.

Brown doesn’t directly reference the showdown in his new song, but it’s clear he’s angry about having to defend himself to the world. “I’ve got some questions, some questions for you / I need some answers, answers from you / What do you do, fighting for your life when no one’s on your side?” he says on the dance track. “I can’t stand to lose you, see you’re in too deep with nowhere to hide.”

Brown was released on $250,000 bail late Tuesday and will appear in court on September 20.

His attorney, Mark Garagos, defended his client via Twitter. “Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes. Chris is out and well,” he tweeted at the time. “The allegations against him are demonstrably false #TeamBreezy.”
