So sexy! Chris and Ariana get up close and personal in their new music video for ‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long,’ a track off his upcoming album ‘X’. Watch it here!

We’re so amazed by Chris Brown‘s new video for “Don’t Be Gone Too Long,” a romantic pop song, featuring Ariana Grandeoff his forthcoming new album X! Chris released the video, which feels like an episode of Once Upon A Time, on Twitter early this morning, Sept. 13, and it’s incredible. Chris and Ariana play lovers and they have amazing chemistry together.

In a fairy tale setting, Chris, 25, courts Ariana, 21, but he eventually has to save her from an evil king. The fantasy backdrop is very cool, and there are also moments where Chris drops some stellar new dance moves in a castle.

“I directed this one also.. Wanted to do something different,” Chris tweeted about his video with Ariana.

Surprised by the pairing? Well, Ariana is friends with Justin Bieber — they also share the same manager, Scooter Braun. And Justin is friends with Chris. Remember, they were spotted partying together before the 1OAK shooting on Aug. 23. So it’s quite possible that the Biebs played matchmaker.

Regardless, we’re so happy Ariana and Chris worked together on this song because it sounds so amazing!

Over the last few months, Chris has been super busy promoting X, which drops on Tuesday, Sept. 16. We can’t wait to pick up a copy.

Watch the video here (or above) and read the lyrics below. This is unlike anything Chris has done in a very long time!

‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long’ Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I dug a single seed into the ground
I hope it grows, grows
In a year or two if you’re around you’ll see a rose, rose
Pack me up and keep me hidden somewhere that you can find me
On this train to Paris going nowhere, trouble is behind me

[Hook]
Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Cause you won’t be there to love me when you’re gone
Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Tell me who’s gonna love me when you’re gone

[Verse 2: Chris Brown & Ariana Grande]
Golden leaves are dancing on the ground
It’s getting cold, cold
Safe from time, we’ll be forever young
Never old, old
See you [?] out in space, [?] behind me
All the wondering in your face

[Hook]
Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Cause you won’t be there to love me when you’re gone
Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Tell me who’s gonna love me when you’re gone

[Bridge]
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me
Is it really over?
Bring it back to me, bring it back to me

[Hook]
Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Cause you won’t be there to love me when you’re gone
Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Tell me who’s gonna love me when you’re gone

Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Cause you won’t be there to love me when you’re gone
Don’t be gone too long (too long)
Tell me who’s gonna love me when you’re gone

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you a fan of Chris and Ariana’s video? Tell us!
