Less than one week ahead of Heartbreak on a Full Moon, Chris Brown surprised some lucky Team Breezy members at a special pop-up show at the Manhattan Center’s Grand Ballroom in New York City on Wednesday (Oct. 25).
The TIDAL-streamed event, dubbed TIDAL X: Chris Brown, featured some of Breezy’s biggest hits, including “Ayo,” “Privacy,” “Party,” “Loyal,” “Questions,” and “Yo (Excuse Me Miss).” Backed by a team of dancers, the R&B star also showed off his own moves throughout the 45-minute event.
Brown also called upon some famous friends to join him onstage. Dave East popped up first for their “Perfect” collaboration. Fabolous came out shortly after for “She Wildin” and “Flipmode.” Then Yo Gotti emerged for “Pills & Automobiles” and “Rake It Up.”
In the middle of the show, Brown spoke directly to Team Breezy. “The whole purpose of me doing this album and me doing this concert was to let y’all see y’all free,” he said. “Whatever you set your mind to, whatever you want to do, if it doesn’t have ill intent and it’s natural, this shit gonna happen like this every time. You’re gonna succeed at anything y’all want to do.”
TIDAL X: Chris Brown took place just days before the release of Brown’s 45-track double album Heartbreak on a Full Moon. “With this album, I wanted to capture all bases of who my audience like and what songs they can actually identify with,” he said. “More R&B, all my girl fans love it, you gon’ have it. More pop, you gon’ have it. But it’s still gonna be my essence.”
