Chris Brown may be busy promoting his upcoming studio album, Royalty, but it looks like he is facing some backlash from fans after announcing the release of his newest single, “Sex You Back To Sleep,” on Thursday.
Chris Brown took to Twitter on November 5 to promote the release of “Sex You Back To Sleep,” which will serve as the next single from his highly anticipated Royalty album that is set to release later this month, Billboard reports.
While some fans took to Twitter to gush over Chris Brown’s new single and express their excitement for his upcoming album given the success of previous tracks like “Zero” and “Liquor,” other fans were quick to express their confusion regarding Chris Brown’s decision to make “Sex You Back To Sleep” a featured track on Royalty.
Chris Brown made headlines earlier this year after it was revealed that Brown fathered a child with model Nia Guzman, ultimately calling an end to his longtime relationship with Karrueche Tran.
In honor of his new role as a father, Chris Brown revealed to fans that he would be dedicating his long-awaited album to daughter Royalty, even going so far as to name the album after Royalty and pose with his daughter for a sweet, black-and-white photo that now serves as Royalty’s cover art, Us Weekly reports.
The photo features a shirtless Chris Brown cradling his daughter close to his chest while Royalty rests comfortably on Brown’s shoulder.
While fans continue to gush over Chris Brown’s dedication to Royalty and decision to incorporate his daughter into his music, some fans are now criticizing Brown’s decision to feature “Sex You Back To Sleep” as a single for his new album given that it’s named after Royalty and features a photo of his daughter on the cover.
In the track, Chris Brown sings, “Just let me ride / Sex you back to sleep, girl.”
One fan explains, “Chris Brown has his beautiful daughter Royalty on his album cover, and his first single he released was ‘F*** You Back To Sleep’? [pause],” referring to the title of the unedited version of Brown’s new single.
Similarly, another fan argues, “How does Chris Brown name his album after his daughter but the track listings are XXX? Don’t make sense,” while another adds, “Can we discuss the furor surrounding Chris Brown’s album having his daughter on the cover and having songs about sex on the album? I’m lost.”
Despite the backlash, some fans came to Chris Brown’s defense to argue that Brown shouldn’t have to compromise his music just for naming his album after his daughter.
“So Chris Brown not allowed to sing sex songs on his album cause his daughter on the cover?” one user asks.
Despite fans’ confusion over Chris Brown’s latest single, the track itself is being met with praise from eager fans who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Brown’s Royalty album.
The news of Chris Brown’s newest single release comes just days after Chris lashed out at TMZ for running a story that claims Brown is addicted to “sizzurp.”
The site claims that Chris Brown’s friends and family are growing increasingly concerned about Brown’s alleged addiction to the codeine-based drink before claiming that Chris Brown was drinking sizzurp while taking Royalty to visit a pumpkin patch.
Chris Brown took to Twitter to blast the rumors by insisting that TMZ was purposely running a fabricated story in an attempt to garner traffic from the scandal, but some fans argue that Brown may be attempting to avoid getting into another custody dispute with baby mama Nia Guzman over the drug allegations.
Chris Brown’s seventh studio album, Royalty, will be available on November 27.
