Chris Brown has never been one to hold his tongue – even when he perhaps he should.
And with new single ‘Party’ arriving today, the oft-controversial singer has more to say than he has in a while.
Fascinatingly, Brown’s latest PSA saw him bash streaming and instead urge fans to buy his song. Why? Because, according to him, he “works harder than all these n***as.”
His words await below. If you’re offended by profanity, look away.
PARTY IS ON ITUNES!!! FUCK STREAMS!!! I work harder then all these niggas Wit half a y’all consumers afraid and bias ass opinions on me!! NAME ONE NIGGA OUT HERE DAT CAN eVEN DO HALFOF WHAT I CAN!!! IN MY KANYE VOICE!!! Take ya head out y’all ass and support the only artist left with a vision and dedication to his fans.
I AInt GONE KEEP BUSTING MY ASS FOR IT TO BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED BY FUCKNIGGAS IN SOCIETY! IM ON MY GORILLA SHIT! I’m passionate about my shit and you can name one nigga that directs his own shit/ spend money on my projects out my pocket!!! Y’all better wake up following these non lyrical rappers and scared ass internet thugs! #NOMOREFAKESHIT. Put yo money where ya mouth is!!!!! Simple as that!!! ( NO ARROGANCE, I JUST KNOW WHAT IM WORTH) you should to! PEOPLE SAYING IM ANGRY!! The total opposite!
IM FOCUSED. Some of y’all never had to struggle or work for anything in y’all life so you will never comprehend! If u ain’t on the team, simply exit your ears and eyes from my progression. Not aggression! Don’t worry, Ima lead, you choose to follow if you want. My music is only as big as my supporters allow!
Since when are consumers obligated to buy anything?
Chris is clearly passionate and undeniably one of today’s best performers. Yet none of that warrants nor validates all of that spiel.
Has he forgotten the countless missteps he’s made on his own accord? The many misbehaviours that drove fans away? For all his talent, moves like this make him seem ultra unlikeable.
A huge faux pas in an age where image is just as (if not more) important than the substance one is selling.
As at writing, ‘Party’ sits at #17 on iTunes – meaning someone is buying it.
For his sake, though, he needs to stop with the self-sympathising and just focus on being the great artist he was destined to be. And maybe just maybe more will hop aboard the Team Breezy train again.
