Bobby Brown Samples The Roots In “Like Bobby,” His First New Song In Seven Years

Fresh off the release of his BET biopic, Bobby Brown has released a new track.

Titled “Like Bobby,” the song samples The Roots‘ “The Next Movement” and is produced by Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Teddy Riley.

The single comes off the heels of his successful BET biopic, The Bobby Brown Story, which grossed 6.6 million viewers for its two-part premiere.

In related news, Brown recently called Kanye West ignorant for using an image of the late Whitney Houston’s bathroom as the album art for Pusha T‘s Daytona.

“Ignorant people are ignorant people, and they’re going to be that way until they find themselves,” Houston’s ex-husband Brown said on the Buzzfeed show Profile.

He added, “You expect disrespectful stuff from Kanye West anyway, so he’s not going to change. Long as he stays clear from me, he’ll be safe. He’ll be OK.”

Brown said that neither West nor Pusha T reached out to him about use of the photo and expressed that does he want to hear from them.
