There are many things Chris Brown should avoid doing right now, and performing on a song called “Maniac” is probably one of them.
Although the R&B artist had been scheduled to appear on Timbaland’s upcoming album, Brown was scratched from Shock Value II. The decision is reportedly due to Chris’ personal - not vocal - issues.
Sources tell TMZ that “some people” felt it was in appropriate for the singer to be associated with “Maniac.” (The song has since been retitled “The One I Love.”) But a rep for Timbaland claims Brown’s removal was simply a “creative decision for both parties.” Uh-huh...
Shock Value II and Chris Brown’s Graffiti both drop on December 8th.

“Man, she’s gonna be like Justin [Timberlake]. She comes from that same musical background, where she’s just got it. Her voice is just there. The best way to put it is she’s special. When I worked with her, I was very impressed. I was like, ‘Whoa.’”
