*Hours after sending out the tweet, “Check 106 and park today. I’mmmm baaacckkk,” Chris Brown visited BET’s “106 & Park” on Tuesday (Aug. 24) to discuss a number of issues – including his BET Awards Michael Jackson tribute and rumored tour with Usher.
“A lot of people don’t know, I was going to see Michael Jackson the day he died. I was on my way to the Staples Center that day,” Brown told an overly excited crowd of weeping, mostly female fans. “When I heard ‘Man In The Mirror,’ it just touched me. It wasn’t fake. I know people were trying to put extras on it, but everything was genuine. That was my ultimate apology, hands down.”
Brown’s single “Deuces” is currently at No. 5 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart — a fact host Terrence J got incorrect during the live broadcast, claiming Brown had reached No. 1. In any case, Brown said it felt “unbelievable,” then thanked his fans for their unconditional support.
When asked about a planned tour with Usher that had been hinted at, then scrapped several days later, Brown said it could happen at some point, but for now he wants to focus on his own career.
“At first we were talking about it, but maybe in the future. For now, just doing the Chris Breezy thing,” he said, adding that the video to his “Matrix” track will be released after his upcoming “Takers” movie, which hits theaters this Friday (Aug. 27). “It’s a five to six-minute short film,” he revealed about the clip.
