When it comes to the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, there’s always one artist who takes the loss a bit harder than the rest. This year, that artist was Chris Brown, who was nominated for Best R&B Album, but lost to Robert Glasper. After the announcement of the winner, Chris Brown took to Instagram to express his displeasure, prompting a flurry of reactions from fans and critics alike. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what happened, and why it’s so important to recognize the accomplishments of other artists.
Chris Brown’s reaction to the results of the 65th Annual Grammy Awards was swift and passionate. He posted a picture of Robert Glasper on his Instagram Stories, asking “Y’all playing. Who da f–k is this?” followed by a series of laughing and crying emojis. He then continued his tirade, asking “Who the f–k is Robert Glasper” and vowing to “keep kicking y’all a– respectfully”.
His reaction didn’t stop there. Brown posted two more stories, one of which was a Photoshopped image of him playing the harmonica, with the caption “New Level Unlocked! Harmonica Breezy”. Brown was nominated for his 10th studio album, Breezy (Deluxe), which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 72,000 album equivalent units.
The winner of the Best R&B Album category was Robert Glasper’s Black Radio III, which beat out Brown, Lucky Daye’s Candy Drip, Mary J. Blige’s Good Morning Gorgeous, and PJ Morton’s Watch the Sun. Glasper’s album included features from Q-Tip, Common, Erykah Badu and Jennifer Hudson. Additionally, Beyonce clinched a win for best R&B song for “Cuff It”.
It’s important to recognize the accomplishments of other artists, even if they don’t win the award. Brown’s reaction was understandable, but it’s also important to remember that success comes in many forms, and it’s important to celebrate the successes of others. It’s also important to remember that success isn’t always measured in awards and accolades, but in the impact of the music we create and the lives we touch.
At the end of the day, we can all learn something from Chris Brown’s reaction. It’s important to recognize the successes of others, and to celebrate them even if we don’t win the award. We can all learn from each other, and that’s something that’s worth celebrating.
