“This ain’t love until we say it’s done.” ~ Sevyn Streeter
Well okay Streeter. It’s hard to believe that R&B singer Sevyn Streeter has become the breakout star that she is after being in girl groups like TG4 and RichGirl. One can’t fight what’s destined for them right?
Her newly released track, “Don’t Kill the Fun,” features her friend, mentor and working partner Chris Brown. The two have collaborated before for Brown’s albums and Streeter’s hit “It Won’t Stop.”
With lyrics like:
Baby don’t kill, the fun (I won’t)
This ain’t love until we say it’s done (alright)
It’s your life, go ahead, do what you choose
Put me in your, your favorite mood
Oh baby, don’t kill the vibe
Turn it down we gotta let it ride
I found you, crowned you, I turned you on
So you know, I got, what you want
Cause anyone can take it with you when you go
It’s only right to make it beautiful
Lets be undeniable (don’t kill the fun)
If you wanna live it better, live it
Make tonight unforgettable (don’t kill the fun)
And we won’t stop rockin’ till they call the cops
Press play below:
Streeter has proven that vocally, she can tackle both being in a group and as a solo artist. What’s great about this track is that Streeter has yet to deliver a song that doesn’t suit her.
The video seems to use fast cars as symbolism for having a great romance while temporarily, forgetting that it will eventually have problematic areas that will need nurturing from both parties. Well, if you expect to survive that is…
The track is nicely done and light-hearted all while keeping the message simple: If you’re dating, take it one day at a time, “don’t kill the fun” and navigate each day as best as you can.
Brown’s appearance continues to showcase that he has a great working relationship with Streeter. Their working chemistry works well for both parties.
The song’s lyrics “I found, I crowned you…“ plays directly into Streeter’s words about “that’s bae” rapper B.o.B after she boo’d him up earlier this year.
Reportedly, “Don’t Kill the Fun” will appear on an upcoming album that will succeed 2013’s “Call Me Crazy….” There’s no word yet on the title or the release date of the album.
