Just days before his preliminary hearing, R&B singer Chris Brown found three songs on the net including the seemingly inappropriate song “Smash”. While the songs, including “Not My Fault,” have been touted as new records, Chris Brown’s team says they’re all old and unofficial. “There are several old demos circulating that are being falsely promoted as new material from Chris,” a statement read from Jive Records. “Countering misleading reports of ‘new’ Chris Brown music: there are no ‘new’ songs from Chris Brown currently being promoted by Chris or his record label.” While today’s statement from the label clears up speculation that “Smash” and “Not My Fault” were buzz singles for Brown’s next album, bloggers and fans have had days to review the songs. As early as Saturday, “Smash” and “Not My Fault” began making rounds across the net, eventually falling into the hands of TMZ. Taking on the song, TMZ just about summed up reaction to “Smash,” writing: “Hypothetical question: If you were a singer accused of beating your girlfriend to a pulp and your preliminary hearing was set for Monday … would your next release be a song called “Smash” ?????” Popular blogger Necole Bitchie also chimed in, writing “Hmmmm, so whoâs idea was it for Chris to release a song where heâs talking about âhit it hit it, Smashâ. Granted heâs talking about a girl wanting to have sex but the timing couldnât be worse considering heâs on trial for doing just that.” Chris Brown is due to appear in court for sentencing August 5. A release date has not been set for his forthcoming album “Graffiti”.
