Is Chris Brown so upset about the BET Award Flub Sunday — when he was mistakenly announced as winner for the Viewers’ Choice Award before Drake was crowned for his collaboration with Rihanna on “What’s My Name” — that he has decided to start a song battle with Drake? Chris released a cover of Drake’s “Mavin’s Room” on Twitter yesterday and has fueled buzz that he is trying to get back at the rapper.
Chris maintains he meant no ill will by posting the remix.
“here it is MARVINS ROOM REMIX!!!” he Tweeted yesterday, announcing that he hasn’t given fans “free music” in a while and that this one was for “the ladies.”
“no diss record either for all the slow people out there! just writing from the other perspective!” he also Tweeted, to clarify that he is not taking a jab at Drake after the BET debacle.
Chris is flying high off his four big wins at Sunday’s award ceremony, including the big honor of Best Male R&B artist.
“Teambreezy is the ultimate/end all be all! I love you,” he Tweeted, thanking his fans. “I didn’t get to thank God for this. He has taught me a lesson in life. and I appreciate everything! Thank you!”
While Chris clarified that he wasn’t trying to slam or trump Drake’s version of the song, he does have his middle finger up in the image paired with the video.
What do you think? Is there a song battle going on?
