“I didn’t realize that every breath I took was from you…You were my air,” Brown sings on the mid-tempo tune.
The song is Brown’s first official single for Masterpiece, his first solo album in 14 years. He says the album is his best work to date and has helped him cope with Houston’s death, among other things.
“It’s what I’ve been through throughout my life, and just trying to heal myself through my music,” he said in a recent interview.
Masterpiece is set to hit stores June 5.
