Skye – Fairytale ft. Chris Brown
I’m not sure where to lead off? First off, DJ Khaled produced this record from scratch with DJ Seezy showing him the nobs and buttons, that’s a story in itself. Skye, a relative unknown, i’ll assume is a pet project of Khaled’s, gets co-billing with Chris Brown, and thirdly, there’s a touchstone video where they re-enact a showmance in a rose-colored room.
The choreography calls for a scenario where both singers swaps places over a single chair. Skye is more prepared for the shoot, pulling up with a squad of dancers, dressed alike just as a bridal party. The brave soul that she is, Skye delivers her performance with oversized hoop earrings threatening to weigh her down.
For just one moment, Chris Brown sets aside his pessimism to appease a woman clinging to “Fairytale” endings. Maybe Breezy still yearns for one himself, Khaled built his fortress around his baby mother and their son. I guess for Skye, there’s no harm in asking for maximum exposure.
No, let me tell you
If I let you squeeze the apple, we gon’ make juice
‘Cause baby, when a real bitch want you
She could give a fuck ’bout rumors
Why would I believe the lies?
I can see you with my own eyes
You’re like a fairytale
