Chris Brown has responded to the backlash he and R&B Chlöe Bailey have gotten for promoting their upcoming new single “How Does It Feel.” Kiely Williams from 3LW and The Cheetah Girls hopped on Twitter to share her frustrations about the upcoming collab between Bailey and Brown.
“Let him come out with his own record—so genius, so captivating that it makes us all forget HE BEATS WOMEN,” Williams wrote. “He can’t so he wont. So what does he do? He slowly creeps back into the mainstream by getting small nods for features on Black women’s merit. Black women who are more talented, more worthy, but give him the okay. I am swatting the f—— air [right now]. Garbage [vomiting emojis].”
Chris responded to Williams via Instagram: “I’m getting kinda tired of ya broken promithis, promithis,” Brown wrote on his Instagram Story today (Feb. 17). “Obviously you are at a point in your life where either you are very broke or broken… The fact you think you have to speak negatively about me makes [you] look so lame… Your life and career must suck right now. Minding your business would’ve been best but I guess you don’t have a business or a real job that makes u financially stable. I feel more embarrassed for you and your actual maturity.”
In another post, he called out others who have been coming for him online. “If y’all still hate me for a mistake I made as a 17-year-old please kiss my entire a–! Im f—– 33!,” he continued. “Im so tired of yall running with this narrative… you weird a– n—– are the same ones that tune in every week to see Blueface and Chrisean beat the f— out of each other in front of the world…but thats ok? it’s entertainment?”
“How Does It Feel” is set to drop next Friday (2/24). Chlöe has yet to publicly address the backlash.
