Entertainer Chris Brown made headlines in the last week after his controversial song lyrics went viral.
On his latest album, Indigo, the 30-year-old has a new song called “Need A Stack” featuring Joyner Lucas and Lil Wayne. During Brown’s part, he explains he only wants to have sex with Black women with nice hair:
“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****, put it right there
Only wanna f*** the black b****es with the nice hair.”
Disappointed fans reacted to his lyrics, claiming his sentiments were inherently laden with misogynoir–specifically against Black women with 4c hair. Chris was unreceptive of the feedback and instead opted to go on a rant about negative “booty face a** b*tches.”
He also launched a “challenge,” daring the angry women to post a photo of themselves.
“Okay, challenge: for all the angry uglies that’s mad at what I said, post a picture of what you look like, please,” he said on Instagram.
As Chris digs a deeper hole, his mother, Joyce Hawkins, stepped in to defend her son. In a series of Instagram stories, she expressed shock over how the story has blown up.
“Headline news!! Hair!! Seriously??! Now what has this world come to?” she wrote.
Continuing, “Stay positive. Don’t nobody want to hear that.”
It’s interesting Chris and his team have opted to push against the backlash, versus acknowledge the wounds and hurt the lyrics triggered in our community.
