John Brown is an original

    John Brown’s music might remind some people of other R&B crooners, but he’s got a sound all his own.
     
    On first listen, John’s “Sex On My Money” kind of reminded us of something The Dream might produce.  However, the track is a collaborative effort born out of a joke John and his boys shared in the studio.
     
    “I’ve come up with quite a few like that, just joking around,” he admitted. “‘Aw, man, maybe that’ll work. Let’s try it!’ And then we’ll just develop or build a song around that.”
     
    After playing around with different beats, John and Co. (he only had “10 to 20 percent” of the creative control) finally found the right music. From there it was on to penning lyrics. Gucci Mane also pops up on the finished track, and John was amped to be on the Georgia rapper’s radar he was at a loss for words.
     
    “I was excited and I was kind of in disbelief because I have always wanted to work with Gucci,” John said. “We submitted the song to another rapper, and I don’t know how it got into the hands of Gucci and his camp, but they called us back.”

     
    The end result is a slow, seductive bedroom tune that might inspire you to go green between the sheets.

     
    However, the sound has also had some people drawing parallels between John and “Birthday Sex” singer Jeremih. It’s a distinction that John couldn’t disagree with more.
     
    “He sings his way, I sing my way. If you listen to any other record that I’ve done—or even this one—it doesn’t sound like Jeremih,” John said of the comparisons. “I think it’s more so the music as opposed to the actual singing that puts people in the mind frame of Jeremih or [the] Dream.”

     
    One track that is unmistakably John, however, is his newest single “One Night.” Listen to the sultry ballad when you scroll down, and tell us what you think of it in the comment section below.
