Here is the video to the coveted Chris Brown’s song “Undecided”.

Omo! (My Pal) see the intro; it is not a hia something. I thought I was watching one Vann Damme’s movie. Even the background beat will glue you to your seat. To be honest, the intro was quite atmospheric and I was so eager to see how it would end. Was the ending worth my wait? You can find out just after you have taken a gander at the lyrics.

 

LYRICS TO THE SONG “UNDECIDED” BY CHRIS BROWN

VERSE 1

No I don’t see it up there
And I probably should’ve told you I hurt this bad (I know)
And I probably shouldn’t want this so bad
It is weighing, weighing on me
Don’t wanna wake up in the morning
Cannot undo what we did in this bed
And I can’t get you out, so I gotta go
No, I’m not ready for you and me, all alone


CHORUS

But I’m undecided, excited, ignited
And I don’t wanna feel the way I do, but I like it
Look at all these sparks flying
But I’m still indecisive
‘Cause you want me to wife you
But I’m undecided

 

VERSE 2
I know I shouldn’t be doing this, but here we go again
Girl you know that pussy is my weakness (Weakness, weakness)
Girl, you got me addicted when you switching position
You told me, “Shut up”
And you know I listen, I hate it
Wish I never did it
I can’t keep sinning and pretending

No! No! No!

BRIDGE
I’m taking off your clothes
We getting sexual
It is so good, think I’ll propose
I don’t know

CHORUS

But I’m undecided, excited, ignited
And I don’t wanna feel the way I do, but I like it
Look at all these sparks flying (All these, all these)
But I’m still indecisive (‘Cause you want me)
‘Cause you want me to wife you
But I’m undecided

Oh, no, I’m undecided, yeah
I just don’t know
‘Cause I’m undecided
No, no, baby
I’m afraid of your love
Ooh, you got me baby
‘Cause I can’t get enough

CHORUS/OUTRO
But I’m undecided, excited, ignited
And I don’t wanna feel the way I do, but I like it
Look at all these sparks flying
But I’m still indecisive
‘Cause you want me to wife you
But I’m undecided

No, no, and I want
No, no, no oh
Ooh, Ooh  but I’m undecided

 

THE REVIEW

So like I said earlier, the intro got me thinking I was in a Cinema watching a new Van Damme movie. I eagerly waited to see how it would end; to be honest, I expected more.

But I love the intro; very attention grabbing. It lasted for about1 Minute 40 seconds. The entire track is about 4 Minute 55 seconds. Hence without the prolonged atmospheric intro, the  video song would have ended at 3 Minutes 15 Seconds.

Lyrically, the lyrics are unclear. I can’t decipher most of the song lyrics. They are not interrelated. Also, I can’t really relate the lines of the verses to the theme of the song which centers on “Indecisiveness” The song basically talks about Chris Brown having a double- mind about settling down with a certain lady he is sexually attracted to.

The song has two verses. The Chorus was sung twice. The entire track was written and sang in one language- English

Song arrangement– Verse 1- Chorus- Verse 2- Chorus- Chorus/outro

 

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the Verse 1, “No I don’t see it up there” Chris Brown explains how much he desires a certain lady both sexually and otherwise. He can’t stop thinking about her as well as longing for her even though he is double minded about marrying her. He wants to leave the relationship but the thought of never having her again sexually leaves him in pain.

In the Chorus, “But I’m undecided, excited, ignited” the artise says he is having a double-mind about settling down with the lady as she so desires. He says the lady delights him as well as arouses his feelings; and they are both sexually attracted to each other.

In the Verse 2, “I know I shouldn’t be doing this, but here we go again” the artiste says his weak point is a woman’s vagina; in essence, he loves to have sex. He is infatuated about her different moves when they are sexing or otherwise.  The lady has a hold on him to the extent that when they are making out and he tries to hesitate for the fear of marital commitment, she shuts him up.

LOCATION

The video was shot in America. It was an outdoor shoot. Their major location was the #Pacific Park

SOUND

Melodious! There was consistency in the style of rhythm used. Chris Brown was expressive as he sang the lyrics. The drum beats, piano and guitar made the song pleasing to the ears.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Does the video complement the theme of the track? Hmm, well I am “undecided” about that. But it is glaring that they focused more on the various stages of  choreography in the song than the theme of the message.

I am trying to imagine a Chris Brown video without any movement, without any dance; Ko le work (It can’t wok)

But I love the visuals; clear and interesting to watch.
