Chris Brown Says Folks ‘Only Invest In the Negative Stories’ After Lukewarm Media Reaction to His Latest Release

R&B crooner Chris Brown is unhappy with the lack of attention he believes his tenth studio album “Breezy” received. The “C.A.B” singer recently took to his social media page, where he aired out his frustrations, including claims that the media only “invests in the negative stories” about him.

In a since expired Instagram Story, while announcing the release date for his album deluxe edition, the 33-year-old artist seemingly addressed the media, writing in bold font that it “SEEMS LIKE YALL ONLY INVEST IN THE NEGATIVE STORIES ABOUT ME.” The Grammy award-winning entertainer continued, “CHRIS GETS IN TROUBLE (THE WHOLE WORLD IS ON it).”

The “Go Crazy” musician also added “Chris drop album” in lowercase letters and a row of crickets, seemingly referring to the small showing of support he received from media outlets following the release of new music. 

Several people came to the musician’s defense, including one fan who wrote, “It’s honestly a great album. No misses. Folks just support the hype now and not authentic music .. smh.” Another person added, “Y’all was doing all that about Chris beating Usher in a verzuz and didn’t support his album? Pitiful!”

“The album is good. Chris made a more R&B album compared to his last 3. It’s zero skips. But the music business doesn’t really support genuine R&B music from a black male artist,” commented a third person. However, they felt that “Chris remaking his image into more of a “rapper” didn’t help. “Either way…. The quality is there. And he’s still a legend.”

Another fan agreed with the entertainer, writing, “He didn’t tell a lie,” but noted that at the “same time he should just focus on those who do support him,” adding that “Positive energy only kinda time.”’

Chris later returned to social media with another post declaring, “I’m back on my gangsta sh-t. It’s BRACKIN at all times.”

The Virginia native released his latest project last month, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, marking it the star’s 12th top 10 album. The latest effort, a follow-up to 2019’s “Indigo,” features several prominent artists, including Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, Fivio Foreign, H.E.R., Ella Mai, and more, across 24 tracks.
