Chris Brown: Favorite song? I would have to say Winner. It's like comparing a relationship to a boxing match.
Sindy: How'd you come up with that comparison?
Chris Brown: I co-wrote it and Brian Cox produced it. I was just thinking about the first round being how you met her, the second round how y'all in the relationship and everything y'all doing, and the third round telling her she's a winner.
Sindy: Oh that's cool! Ok, so who's your fave singer?
Chris Brown: Favorite singers now, or back in the day?
Chris Brown: Back in the day - Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke - that's my favorite - Michael Jackson, Teddy Pendergrass. Nowadays, I'm feeling Trey Shauns a lot and Usher and Mario and other young artists.
