Chris Brown may have caught the attention of ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran earlier this week after he dissed his former flame in a new song, but it appears Chris Brown is committed to moving forward from his former relationship with Karrueche after sharing an inspirational message on Instagram about finding happiness.
Earlier this week, Chris Brown took to Instagram to share several videos of himself singing along to new music while rumors continue to suggest that Brown has pushed back the release of his album, Royalty.
While it’s unclear if the music that Chris Brown teased on Instagram will be featured on Royalty, fans couldn’t help but point out that one of Chris’ alleged new tracks seems to be directed at ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
In one of Chris Brown’s now-deleted Instagram videos, Brown can be seen mouthing along to lyrics, “I remember when we used to be in love / Now you Hollywood, tryna get your name up / Now when I look at you, all I see is a stranger,” Urban Islandz reports.
It didn’t take long for Chris Brown’s fans to begin tagging Karrueche Tran in the comments section of Chris Brown’s video, prompting Karrueche to share her own video, seemingly throwing shade back at Chris Brown for penning a song about their romance.
“To be petty, or to not be petty? That is the question,” Karrueche Tran asked in a video captured by The Shade Room.
Just days later, Chris Brown took to Instagram to share a lengthy inspirational message about finding one’s own happiness, prompting fans to praise Chris Brown for focusing on the positive in his life and not allowing his social media spat with Karrueche Tran to bring him down.
In Chris Brown’s post, the singer shares, “Happiness is a choice. You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect in your family or with your business. You don’t have to forgo happiness until you lose weight, break an unhealthy habit, or accomplish all your goals.”
Chris Brown’s message goes on to explain that people “might as well choose to be happy” and learn to enjoy the present rather than focusing on what the future has in store.
While some fans interpreted Chris Brown’s message to be aimed at his recent spat with Karrueche Tran, others felt that Brown was offering some inspiration to his close friend Tyga who recently split from Kylie Jenner earlier this week.
While it’s unclear as to why Kylie Jenner and Tyga parted ways, with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star having called off her relationship with Tyga on the rapper’s birthday, sources close to Jenner revealed to TMZ that it was because of “something Tyga did.”
Similarly, an alleged source close to Chris Brown and Tyga revealed to Hollywood Life that Brown has been giving Tyga advice regarding the recent split and encouraged the rapper to move on and focus on the positive rather than dwell on the breakup.
The source explains, “Chris feels for Tyga. Chris knows a thing or two about breakups and they’re never nice for either party. While Chris doesn’t have any hate or negative feelings towards Kylie, he’s telling Tyga to take this one for the team and let her go.”
Chris Brown’s source goes on to argue that Chris Brown is “the happiest he’s ever been” since splitting from Karrueche Tran and notes that Brown told Tyga to “embrace the single life.”
Currently, Chris Brown is focusing on gearing up for the release of his new album, Royalty, while sources close to the singer suggest that Brown is still working on putting together some new music for fans.
