Chris Brown appears to have hit out at the music industry claiming they are bypassing real talent to sell records, just days after his controversial collaboration with ex-girlfriend Rihanna was released online.
The 'Don't Judge Me' singer appears to be enjoying success with his music career, after his last album Fortune soared to the top of the US and UK charts and spawning the worldwide smash hit single 'Turn Up The Music' and 'Don't Wake Me Up.'
However, Chris has hinted that not all is well behind the scenes after posting a subliminal message on Twitter lashing out at record labels for apparently snubbing talent.
"Labels don't know music or talent anymore!! The people do!" Chris tweeted without giving any other hints as to who the message is aimed at.
The tweet comes as a snippet of Chris' collaboration with Rihanna, titled 'Nobodies Business,' was leaked online this week, fuelling rumours of a reconciliation.
A source claims that the former couple actually recorded the track in secret last year while he was still dating Karrueche Tran, but wanted to keep it under wraps until they were ready to go public with their alleged romance.
"They collabed on that track many months ago and both of them wanted to keep that under wraps until the time was right," the insider told HollywoodLife.com.
"The track is hot and Chris kept that s**t on the under because they both wanted it that way."
"Rihanna wanted him on the album since like last year and she put that bug in his ear and he was like cool and jumped on it. He was down for it. He wasn’t gone tell her no."
The source claims that while they no their relationship is constantly under the spotlight, Rihanna and Chris were keen to keep the collabo under wraps until she was ready with her new album.
"I know they were in the studio listening to her album and the “Nobodies Business” track, fine tuning some s**t, but they didn’t drop nothing to nobody about it though. Sometimes they just want some s**t to be between them," the insider explained.
