Chris Brown had a problem with ‘Black Radio III’ winning, but other musicians celebrated the victory.

Pianist/producer/songwriter Robert Glasper is now a five-time Grammy winner. His Black Radio III won Best R&B Album at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

There was some controversy surrounding Robert Glasper’s Best R&B Album victory. Fellow nominee Chris Brown took to his Instagram Story to blast the Recording Academy’s decision.

“Who the f### is Robert Glasper?” posted Chris Brown on the social media platform. He also added, “Ima keep kicking y’all ass! Respectfully… I gotta get my skills up… Ima start playing the harmonica.”

Meanwhile, Glasper showed appreciation to his collaborators and supporters. While Chris Brown apparently felt robbed that Breezy (Deluxe) did not succeed in the category, other R&B stars celebrated Black Radio III winning Best R&B Album.

“Thank you to all the INCREDIBLE artists and musicians that were a part of this record. And my team Vinnie, Dana, Leandra, Becca, Freda, Shawn, Loma Vista, The Recording Academy, and YOU my fans!! I couldn’t have done this without y’all!” wrote Glasper on Instagram.
