The secret is out. Chris Brown will be taking the stage at the 2014 BET Awards on Sunday for the first time since his release from jail. While there has not been an official announcement, his friend Tank confirmed the rumors to Rap-Up TV.
“We’re getting ready to see him get back on stage at the BET Awards,” said Tank at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills on Thursday. “I’m super excited about that. He’s got some new material that is really going to floor everybody.”
But he doesn’t want to ruin the surprise. “I’ve been kinda staying away from it ’cause I wanna be that guy in the audience that’s a real fan and really appreciate it for what it is. I’ll be sitting there waiting with my eyes open.”
Tank has heard Breezy’s upcoming album X, and promises it will be worth the wait. “All I can say is he hasn’t lost his step. He’s only gotten better. This kid is amazing. He just keeps getting better.”
On August 12, Tank will release his own album Stronger. “This album reflects how happy I am,” he said. “I’ve been through the storm and I’ve made it out, and on the other side of that storm was some sunshine. So right now we’re dancing in that sunshine and it’s good.”
Plus, he confirmed that he will reunite with Tyrese and Ginuwine for a new TGT album. “We gotta do it. The people want it, they need it. We’re already signed on for it. There’s a check that comes along with it. We’re ready to rock.”
