Chris Brown has a new song with the late Aaliyah -- and his new music video has an interesting message.
"Don't Think They Know" doesn't only feature Aaliyah in the chorus of the track though. She also appears (via faint hologram) in the clip, acting as backup dancer to Chris.
In the video, Brown plays mediator as he tries to end two gang feuds. The video has clear references to Los Angeles' Bloods and Crips, whose gang colors are red and blue.
While it's not the best video, at least Brown's trying to use his platform to bring awareness to a social issue. If nothing else, it's a step in the right direction.

In March, Chris chatted with Rolling Stone about his new album, telling the mag "Making X, I found out who I am."
"This album has a lot of substance, from the subject matter and the situations to how it deals with love. It's really derived from personal experiences. Then again, I always like mixing reality with art," he explained.
The single will be on Chris' "X," which goes on sale July 16. What do you think of the video? Sound off below!
