Chipmunk believes Chris Brown was the only artist who could do his new single 'Champion' justice, as his work ''comes from the heart''
Chipmunk believes Chris Brown was the only artist who could do his new single justice.
The 20-year-old British rapper - who collaborates with the US star on new track 'Champion' - thinks nobody would be able to sing the tune as well as Chris, as it comes "from the heart".
Chipmunk explained: "It's from the heart, it's a true story. I felt every single word and Chris meant every single word. I didn't want it to feel like I was just moaning about life. I wanted to uplift the people so I knew it needed something. It needed belting out.
"That's when I thought of Chris Brown. Nobody else is going to sing this better than him."
The 21-year-old hitmaker - whose career has experienced a rebirth since he served community service after assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna - liked the track so much he even asked if he could write a verse for it.
Chipmunk added to the Daily Star newspaper: "We sent it to him, he loved it, in fact he liked it so much he asked if he could write a verse.
"He wanted to rap and execute how he feels. When I heard the verse I was like, 'Wow that's some s**t'."
