It seems as if Chris Brown may have run into a few vocal issues this week during his set for “Taraji and Terrence’s White Hot Holidays” FOX special.
Kicking off his on stage performance with a snippet of his latest single “Back To Sleep,” the singer then was joined by Tank to perform the Donny Hathaway Christmas classic, “This Christmas.”
Receiving a little backlash from Twitter users about his inability to keep control of his vocals throughout the duet, Breezy – whose new album Royalty is set to touchdown next Friday – took to Twitter to address the mishap.
“I appreciate @TherealTaraji for allowing me to come on their Holiday special. Grind season been in full effect. Been under the weather,” he wrote. Coming to his defense after Twitter decided to come for him, Taraji tweeted out her support for the talented superstar saying, “Y’all know what @chrisbrown is capable of vocally. HE SHOWED UP W/LOVE IN HIS HEART PERIOD Happy #WhiteHotHolidays.”
Regardless of how this specific performance went, I think we all know how talented Chris is. In his words: “MJ didn’t score 50 every night. I’m just glad I was given the opportunity. #HappyHolidays.”
Other performers for the night included Patti LaBelle, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, and Jamie Foxx, as well as Empire’s own Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Y. Gray.
