Bobby Brown debuted a song to his late ex-wife Whitney Houston on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday.
The singer, who is part of the group New Edition but is coming out with his own solo album, debuted “Don’t Let Me Die,” which will be featured on the upcoming The Masterpiece.
“I didn't realize that every breath I took was from you," he sings in the song, MTV News reports. "You were my air."
He also sings about his mistakes in their relationship, with such lyrics as "I guess I [messed] up pretty bad/ I didn't know who you were/ I didn't know what we had/Now I'm stuck living in the past/ Trying to get the pieces back/ But I guess now you're gone."
TMZ reports that Brown’s new album comes out in June.
Brown recently defended himself against accusations that he got his late ex-wife addicted to drugs. He sat down with Matt Lauer on the Today show and denied any kind of wrongdoing.
"I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn't the one that got Whitney on drugs at all," he said. “It's just, it's just unexplainable, how one could [say that I] got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone."
He also said on morning show that Houston did drugs “way before” he met her.
