Chris Brown’s latest single called “Fine China” is the first one to come from his upcoming album. The song was released in April of 2013 from RCA Records. “Fine China” was written by Chris Brown, Amber Streeter, and Eric Bellinger. The music video of the song was released by RCA Records at the same time, and it is directed by Brown and Sylvain White. The video was produced by Andrew Listermann and the production company was Riveting Entertainment. In the video, Brown has a vintage look, and in some parts, it harkens back to Michael Jackson as a sort of tribute to the King of Pop. The video also stars Francois Chau as the mob boss father.
In the video, Chris Brown is seen pursuing a young Asian woman but her father disapproves of their relationship. At the beginning of the video, the young girl is seen at the table with her father and mother. Her father is talking about the responsibilities as part of the triad and tells his daughter that she has shamed the family. Enter Chris Brown in a fancy car. He sits outside waiting for the girl while her father tells her not to leave. The young woman defies him and goes off with Brown instead. Brown sings the song as the couple is driving in the car through the city.
Brown is also seen dancing on the street and many of his moves are reminiscent of Michael Jackson. Brown takes his girl to a club where he continues to sing with backup dancers. Pretty soon, the father’s henchmen show up and get into a fight with Brown. More of the gang shows up as well as the father when they try to leave. Just as the father is about to have Brown shot, a rival gang shows up and sets the scene for a rumble.
Throughout the song, Brown makes comparisons to his girl as “fine china” meaning she is “irreplaceable” and “collectable.” The singer is telling his girlfriend that the guy she used to be with is not worth it, and he will treat her better because she is his “favorite” and it’s different with her than with other girls. The chorus continually repeats the idea of the singer’s girlfriend being just like “fine china,” because of her uniqueness.
