R&B singer Chris Brown has a large female fan base, especially among Black women. But today, he's got many Black women up in arms over some controversial lyrics taken from his new album Indigo.
On the song called 'Need a Stack ft Lil Wayne and Joyner Lucas" Chris raps,
"I'll leave a paper trail, then I'ma need a tip drill/ Shakin' it, turn the lights down /Bust it for the light bill/ Diggin' it, then I'm lickin' all on that p***y, put it right there/ Only wanna f**k the black b***hes with the nice hair...
Many women on social media are blasting Chris, calling that bar "racist" and "colorist."
Here are some of the reactions today on Twitter:
Hits Daily Double is reporting Brown’s Indigo album is expected to move between 110,000 to 135,000 copies. Of that amount, 40,000 to 50,000 would be in pure album sales.
Another major album to keep track of is J Balvin and Bad Bunny’s collaborative effort OASIS. It is on pace to move between 27,000 to 33,000 copies, with 2,000 to 4,000 in pure album sales.
For Brown, this would be a bigger opening week than his previous album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. But it did earn him his seventh No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart with 68,000 equivalent album units, according to Billboard.
