Chris Brown released his new album “Breezy” on June 24, but it apparently didn’t get the support the R&B singer expected. The 24-track project boasted contributions from a roster of heavyweight guests such as Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, H.E.R., Jack Harlow and Tory Lanez.
Although the album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, the Grammy Award-winning artist took to Instagram to complain about the lack of coverage for “Breezy” and says that media outlets only care about him when there are negative stories to cover.
“July 8th breezy deluxe album,” Brown wrote. “Not that it matters…SEEMS LIKE YALL ONLY INVEST IN THE NEGATIVE STORIES ABOUT ME. CHRIS GETS IN TROUBLE (THE WHOLE WORLD IS ON it). Chris drops album [crickets].”
“I’m back on my gangsta shit…It’s BRACKIN at all Times,” he added in a second post.
Chris Brown did an extensive promotional run before the release of “Breezy” but the album performed below its expectations.
“Breezy” serves as a follow-up to his 2019 album “Indigo.” It peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart and was able to move 72,000 equivalent album units, which included roughly 5,000 pure album sales, making it his 12th Top 10 album in the country. Furthermore, it did notch a #1 on Apple Music’s U.S. charts and Top 200 single on Spotify’s U.S. chart. The album accumulated 87.36 million on-demand audio streams in the United States as well.
