Bobby Brown performs ‘Don’t Let Me Die’ live on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno [Video]

Bobby Brown is reminding the world of what made him famous. Preparing his upcoming studio album The Masterpiece — 15 years after his last studio album, Forever, was released — the New Edition alum took to the stage last week at Jay Leno‘s Tonight Show to perform his new heartfelt ballad “Don’t Let Me Die.”

According to reports from The Guardian, the song is a subtle tribute to ex-wife Whitney Houston. The singer’s rep has loosely denied this claim.

The Masterpiece is set to be released June 5th. Watch the live performance below.
