Chris Brown is upset about the lack of support he’s getting for his just-released album Costs.

Chris Brown posted a few posts on his now-defunct Instagram Stories on Sunday (July 3) where he called out the lack of support for his new project. Apparently, the R&B singer is upset that the media and fans are focusing on negative stories about him instead of his new music.

« July 8 [Breezy] deluxe album, not that [it] it matters…,” he wrote in a post. “SEEMS LIKE YOU ONLY INVEST IN THE NEGATIVE STORIES ABOUT ME. CHRIS HAS ISSUES (THE WHOLE WORLD IS ON). Chris is releasing an album…[cricket emojis].”

Brown added in another post, “I’m back on my gangsta shit…It’s BRACKIN anytime.”

Chris Brown did an extensive promotional campaign before the release of Costs. But the album fell short of his expectations this week.

As previously predicted, Brown’s latest project debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart. Billboard, the collection entered at No. 4 with 72,000 equivalent album units moved. Of that total, SEA units comprise 66,000, pure album sales comprise 5,000, and TEA units comprise 1,000. Breezy also racked up 87.36 million official on-demand streams of the album’s 24 tracks.

As for the negative stories, Brown can point to the rape allegations against him, which he has vehemently denied.

In the meantime, Chris Brown will co-headline a tour with Lil Baby later this month.
