A recap of the Chris Brown One Hell of a Nite Tour in Chula Vista can be summed up by just one word: incredible. Last night south San Diego boomed with the bass and voices of Fetty Wap, Omarion, Kid Ink, and Chris Brown. The night even brought a surprise performance by French Montana. Fetty Wap was perfect, as usual, and started off the crowd chanting and singing along with him. While he was only on stage for four short songs, he achieved total audience engagement and it was clear Fetty Wap fans filled the arena. Omarion followed Fetty’s performance and at first started off strong. His time on stage was the least memorable of the four because he got discouraged when the audience didn’t sing his lyrics back to him and instead chose to play other songs not by him. This made his performance weak because fans didn’t come to hear recordings of popular rap songs by other artists; they came to hear him. His self-proclaimed personal DJ left too many breaks in the song for audiences to sing, which created awkward silences when the crowd didn’t know the words. Although he should have sung more and played other songs less, when he did sing Omarion was talented live. Kid Ink lit up the stage next and—for lack of a better description—absolutely killed it. He sang new songs like “Body Language” and some of his originals such as “Iz U Down”. Ink paraded around stage and even walked through the front seats of the crowd. After his amazing performance he signed his hat and threw it into the audience, along with two signed towels.
Chris Brown’s entrance was the best it could have possibly been. With multiple screens showcasing intense visual effects he ran out to sing a crow favorite, “Run It”. Chris brought out tons of throwbacks which made his performance unique and sentimental. His ability to rap and dance and the same time was truly impressive. He sang mostly snippets of current songs that he is featured in, oldies but goodies, and slow jams for the ladies. When he went off stage many people thought the concert was over, but that’s when French Montana appeared! He sauntered on wearing a team jersey and sang into the microphone his signature “Hehhh” and the crowd went crazy. He picked up the tempo from C.B.’s slow songs and got everyone moving with “Pop That” and “Ain’t Worried About Nothin”. Chris Brown came back onstage and they performed as a duet to their song “Loyal”. Every artist’s live performance held up to expectations and therefore the night couldn’t have been any better.
