Losing a Grammy nomination leads to humbled celebs or bitter ones who can’t accept defeat.
Chris Brown falls into the second category after being nominated alongside Robert Glasper’s Black Radio III, Mary J. Blige’s Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe), Lucky Daye’s Candydrip, and PJ Morton’s Watch the Sun for the best R&B Album.
Glasper’s album won over Brown’s, and the controversial R&B singer took to his Instagram stories to share his anger.
He took his frustration out on Glasper by posting a screenshot of googling Glasper and above it wrote in all caps, “BRO WHO THE F-CK IS THIS?”
Brown’s critique of Glasper, a noted producer, songwriter and arranger, didn’t end there as he hopped back on IG, writing, “I gotta get my skills up…Ima start playing the harmonica” seemingly making fun of Glasper who’s adept at playing several instruments.
The joke continued on the following Instagram story, where Brown posted a photoshopped image of himself playing the harmonica, captioned, “New Level Unlocked! Harmonica Breezy.”
Glasper’s musical resume is impressive, with credits on albums from stars like Mac Miller, Anderson .Paak, Q-Tip and Common. He even won a 2017 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for his song, “A Letter to the Free,” featured in Ava DuVernay’s 13th.
One of his most noted performances came while playing the keyboard on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly. He also won another Grammy for “These Walls.”
This isn’t Glasper’s first time taking home some Grammys hardware. He scored his first one back in 2013 for his breakout album, Black Radio, for Best R&B Album, then in 2015 for the follow-up Black Radio 2 for Best Traditional R&B Performance. He snagged another in 2017 for Jazz and Best R&B song in 2021. His win last night marks his fifth Grammy award.
