Chris Brown hit a snag last night while ringing in the holidays.
The R&B singer took the stage during “Taraji and Terrence’s White Hot Holidays” special, put on by the “Empire” stars and featuring performances from Mary J. Blige, John Legend, Patti LaBelle, and Jamie Foxx, as well as the show’s Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Y. Gray.
But it was Brown’s set that got the most attention. Breezy, whose new album Royalty arrives Dec. 18, performed a medley of “Back to Sleep” and “This Christmas,” inciting a Twitter backlash noting the difficulty he seemed to have keeping control of his voice. Tank joined him halfway through the Donny Hathaway cover, duetting with the suit-clad star.
