Chris Brown with a New MJ tribute
The American Music Awards cancelled Chris browns performance tribute to Michael Jackson, according to the organizers it was “due to reasons best known to them”, naturally it caused an outrage from the black community but he let it go and instead pulled a new stunt.
On IG he shared something special with his fans, after sharing his rehearsal for the planned performance he previewed a new song “Transparency” where he sampled MJ’s “The Lady In My Life” which was scheduled for release earlier but had issues with the sample being cleared.
Brown apparently has had issues, specifically with getting clearance for the track. Because of this, it lives in his personal archives, though he says he’s asked about it on a regular basis.
Naaaah that Chris Brown snippet is bomb! Transparency
Run him the damn clearance !!!!!

Chris Brown sampling MJ’s “The lady in my life” in his song transparency 😩 I really hate how MJ’s estate wouldn’t clear the sample. Trifling.
