While the sultry pop number keeps intact for the most part, the country singer takes over second verse duties, adding his twangy vocal flair onto the almost-four minute mid-tempo. It's not a necessary remix, but the newly-tweaked crossover track does hear a spare change to production with an electric guitar and is clearing resonating with both pop and country audiences. At time of press, it was sitting pretty at the No. 3 spot on the iTunes singles chart.
"I love this so much," the 21-year-old pop star said of the reimagined track. "Always imagined another version of this song sounding like this." With Brown in the mix of things and its heightened position on iTunes, we can only expect that the song will make a jump on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. For the chart dated the week of April 28, "Never Be the Same" reached the No. 13 spot, with Brown's "Heaven" logging the No. 26 position.
