Chris Brown is seriously getting his Michael Jackson on in the music video for “Fine China,” the first single off of his upcoming album X.
In the new visual, he plays a guy that’s smitten with an Asian girl with a royal background and her family isn’t having it. He takes her to the underground where he is from, meanwhile, the Chinese triads are out for his blood.

Throughout the entertaining video, there are a few Michael Jackson influences, especially the dance scene which is reminiscent of MJ’s Smooth Criminal video. Chris recently told Ebony Magazine:
With “Fine China” you can still feel that kinda “Off the Wall” Michael Jackson vibe but it’s still new and up to date. I really wanted to kind of bring that essence of music back with that single. When you go through the album it’s diverse, it doesn’t just have that one sound.
The song is rumored to be inspired by his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
