Chris Brown heeft gereageerd op de reactie van Tinashe in een recent interview. Daarin zei ze spijt te hebben van de samenwerking met Chris Brown en R. Kelly.
Ze deed het destijds in opdracht van haar label, om haar carrière een boost te geven. “Especially when it comes to singles, for example — that song with Chris [Brown]. That was a song that we all wanted to be this big moment, this big single. So I feel like, in their mind, they were like, ‘You need the support.’ He was their biggest artist that they had on rhythmic radio at the time. To me, I was like, ‘Well, this is a pop song. So, I really don’t feel like we should put Chris on it.’ That doesn’t compute to me, but I don’t know.”
Chris Brown hoorde van het interview en sloeg hard terug. “Name five Tinashe songs or die…. Everybody dead. What’s more embarrassing is that she worked with all these people, and not one of us could save her career.”
Daarop barstte een helse kritiek los, naar zowel Chris Brown als Tinashe. “Tinashe is a waste of a talent. A racially ambiguous, light-skinned woman who can dance and sing and hasn’t surpassed being a C-list celebrity at best. She ought to be happy to have R. Kelly and Chris Brown’s work résumés attached to her. It’s not them, it’s you!”
Iemand anders zegt weer: “We can defend Tinashe without acting like Chris Brown isn’t an amazing artist. Saying you can’t name five Chris Brown songs wouldn’t even be enough to convince yourself. And the Tinashe song he’s on is a big bop, too. He has a lot of shortcomings — music is NOT one of them.”
