Target Celebrates Brown's "Exclusive"
All hell broke loose outside the club, when Juelz Santana and Jim Jones were
On Tuesday, November 6th, Target hosted Chris Brown’s release party celebrating his incredible sophomore album entitled, “Exclusive.” The star-studded event was held at trendy Tenjune at 26 Little West 12th Street in the Meatpacking District in New York City.
DJ Enuff was on fire, keeping it live as guests mixed and mingled while waiting for Chris to show up. Brown, who arrived fashionably late, surrounded by family and friends, used his VIP area seating accommodations only to shed his outer gear as he abruptly turned to the crowd from the elevated tier, hailing high the East Coast symbol, diving feet first, straight onto the dance floor to get it on and poppin' with all of his guests, and that is where he remained, swapping dance moves with an entourage of extraordinary dancers, family and friends, and vibing with guests, for the rest of the evening.
Meanwhile, all hell broke loose outside the club, when Juelz Santana and Jim Jones were blocked from entering the party by Tenjune staff, because the venue was full to capacity. And you know once that happens, even the President isn't getting in. But when Tenjune told Santana, Jones and their huge entourage they could not enter the club, Jones started shouting, "You disrespectin' me, n---uh?" and knocked down the velvet rope. Santana and some other guys rushed the bouncers at the door. A fight broke out as about a dozen of Santana and Jones' troop tried to pry Tenjune’s doors open. But when Tenjune titans down below got the news, they immediately charged upstairs and bounced the mob onto the street.
Both Santana and Jones have collaborated with Brown – Santana on Brown’s debut smash hit, “Run It,” and Jones on David Banner’s “Get Like Me” with Chris Brown and Yung Joc.
Cops soon arrived at the scene and the venue briefly shut itself down until the situation was brought under control.
Tyrese, Swizz Beatz, Trina, Lil Mama, JoJo Simmons, La La, 718, Kat DeLuna, Funk Master Flex, Fonzworth Bentley, Sean Kingston, Melyssa Ford, Sean Garrett, daytime soap opera hottie, Tobias Truvillion (who plays Vincent Jones on One Life To Live) and Nik (the gorgeous diva from America’s Next Top Model), and a myriad of music industry executives, were among the guests that attended the elegantly catered event, served by friendly, Playboy caliber hostesses.
Most inside the club had no idea what was going on outside. All in all, it was an extraordinary evening for Chris and his guests.
Brown’s album, “Exclusive,” has so much to offer and is a must for everybody’s music collection. Shine up your whips, because the intoxicating, “Kiss Kiss featuring T-Pain” is the sho nuff chart topper and most definitely should be the jam now and throughout the summer.
“Target recognizes the importance of urban music and is committed to offering our guests unique and exclusive products to meet their diverse needs,” stated a representative of the Fortune 500 company. Kudos to Target who knows how to rock the party.
Hey! Ra-Fael Blanco of 2R Entertainment & Media, it was great meeting you and Nik. Holluh at me. We definitely must talk about Nik’s new book!
