Is Chris Brown's ‘Breezy’ a FLOP? Rapper screams lack of support: ‘Yall only invest in negative stories’
Chris Brown, who dropped his 10th album ‘Breezy’ on June 24, seems to be upset with the record’s performance as he took to Instagram over the weekend to rant about the same. The ‘Go Crazy’ hitmaker shared on his Instagram that people only talk about his negative stories but ignore him when it comes to his music.
The R&B singer and rapper had gone all out to promote his latest studio effort but it looks like the crooner's hard work went in vain as the album performed below its expectations. While social media users did love some of Chris Brown’s songs, the album failed to create the magic like his previous projects.

Is Chris Brown's new album a FLOP?
Taking to Instagram over the weekend, Chris Brown expressed his frustration over the world focusing on the rapper’s negative stories but not his hard work. On one of the Instagram stories, the award-winning singer announced the deluxe album of ‘Breezy’ while ranting, “July 8th deluxe album not that it matters.” Chris Brown added, “Seems like yall only invest in the negative stories about m.” In the same story, he added, “Chris gets in trouble )the whole world is on it) further taunting, “Chris drops album” adding multiple emoticons of what appeared to be bees. He also seemed to comment on a post shared by Wireless Festival where he had recently performed. In a comment on Instagram, he wrote, “4 million views on a clip but (N-Word) can’t download an album??? Da F**k.”
Billboard revealed that Chris Brown’s 10th offering debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 with 72,000 album-equivalent units. This included 5,000 pure album sales in its first week making it Chris Brown’s 10th top ten album in the country. ‘Breezy’ also accumulated 87.36 million on-demand audio streams in the United States for its track list of 24 songs.
Chris Brown may have won critical appreciation for ‘Breezy’ but it failed to rake in the numbers on the charts. His latest numbers on the album are reportedly the second-lowest premiere numbers of his career to date. His 2017 LP ‘Heartbreak on a Full Moon’ sold 68,000 units when it entered the Billboard 200 at number three.
Chris Brown’s latest album is stacked with 24 songs and includes features from renowned artists like Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, H.E.R., Wizkid, Lil Baby, Ella Mai, Tory Lanez, Bryson Tiller, and others. Chris Brown had dropped three singles prior to his album release - namely ‘Iffy’, ‘Warm Embrace’ featuring Normani, and ‘Call You Every Day” featuring Wizkid. While sharing details about his new album, the 33-year-old artist had earlier said that he wanted to make some "really endearing music" that "talk to women's soul." Chris had last dropped an album in 2019 called ‘Indigo,’ which had performed exceptionally well on the charts.
