Chris Brown & Ciara Project OTW After Chloe Collab Backlash

Chris Brown Announces Project With Ciara Following Backlash From Chloe Bailey Collab


Chris Brown Announces Project With Ciara Following Backlash From Chloe Bailey Collab

According to Chris Brown, he and Ciara are linking up for a forthcoming project—and the reactions are definitely a mixed bag!



Chris & Ciara Are Cookin' Up Some Heat, He Says

Breezy, 33, announced the news through his Instagram Story on Thursday morning.

Without going into too much detail, Chris wrote, “Me and Ciara got some [fire emojis] coming.”


Run It Back! Chris & CiCi Have Collaborated Before

We should note that this wouldn’t be the first time these R&B superstars have linked up for a project.

In 2009, Ciara featured Breezy on “Turntables,” which was included on her Fantasy Ride album.

Shortly ahead of this, they also performed together at the 2008 BET Awards.

Additionally, back in late 2022, Ciara shared a video showing her and Chris rockin’ out to some Michael Jackson. This led to speculation that she was set to participate in Brown’s canceled AMAs performance.



Twitter Reacts To News Of The Upcoming Project

Soon after Chris broke the news, people began chirpin’ away on social media.

The response to the revelation was overwhelmingly positive, and excited reactions swiftly poured in.

Much of the hype centered on the duo’s dance skills.

One user felt this project could compensate for Ciara and Chris Brown’s canceled AMAs performance.



Critics Say Collab Doesn't Reflect Ciara's 'Empowerment' Messages

However, others called Ciara’s decision to work with Chris  a “misstep.”

Critics highlighting the collab as ‘controversial’ are using Ciara’s 2023 track, For Da Girls, to make their point. When she first teased the song in February, much of the reactions centered on the lyrics–encouraging women to be independent while the singer is married to NFL player Russell Wilson.



Fans Question Why Chloe Bailey Caught WAY More Heat Than Ciara

A fair amount of backlash also came as users reflected on the response Chloe Bailey received after announcing “How Does It Feel,” which features Chris.

After Chloe announced this project, critics like Kiely Williams made their opinions loud and clear, as The Shade Room previously reported.

While Chloe brushed off the criticism by saying that she wants to “let the music speak for itself” and telling haters to “kiss [her] booty,” many questioned why Ciara wasn’t facing similar backlash.

In fact, people called the criticism against Chloe “selective outrage” that was “phony.”

One user even deduced that the message was, “Ciara can work with Chris Brown, but Chloe can’t.”


Halle Bailey Seemingly Addresses Chloe's Critics: 'Please Keep It Cute'

While acknowledging the past backlash against Chloe, it’s worth noting that Halle Bailey recently issued a lil’ reminder on Twitter!

The 23-year-old began by proclaiming:

“Everyone who knows me knows I go to war for the ones I love, and I’ve kept it real cute on this app for a while now.”

She added, “Just reminding y’all to please keep it cute too.” Heard you, Halle!


Roomies, what do you think about how R&B fans reacted to this news as opposed to Chloe Bailey’s project with Chris?
