“Back to Sleep”, also known by the censored version title “Sex You Back to Sleep”, is a song by American recording artist Chris Brown from his seventh studio album Royalty. The song was released as the album’s third single and its first urban single on November 5, 2015.
The song received mixed reviews from contemporary music critics, some noted it as one of the album’s highlights celebrating its production, and others criticized its lyrical content.
Critics compared the song to Brown’s previous singles “Take You Down” (2008) and “No Bullshit” (2011), and also to Marvin Gaye’s 1982 song “Sexual Healing”.
The song became it’s most successful from the album, by peaking at number 20 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and number 5 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
“Back to Sleep” is the third single to be released from Chris Brown’s 7th album named after his daughter Royalty (following “Liquor” and “Zero”).
The song deals with Chris flying back into town – presumably from touring the country – and going over to see his girl. It’s not alike his past love songs; such as “With You”, but is a lot more subtle in its sexual content than other hits like “Ayo”.
