Chris Brown had “No Filter” after finding out he lost in the Best R&B Album category Sunday night at the Grammy Awards.

The R&B hitmaker took to Instagram to voice his frustration because pianist and music producer Robert Glasper took the trophy in the category for his 2022 album Black Radio III.

In since-deleted posts, Brown expressed his disappointment at losing to Glasper and insulted the decorated musician. Screenshots captured by The Neighborhood Talk revealed Brown’s multi-slide rant.

The “Run It!” singer even posted an edited an image of himself playing the harmonica with the caption: “New level unlocked! Harmonica Breezy.”
