He continued, "I just had to cancel my studio session and video with an icon and legend [Lenny Kravitz] but he showed up and killed anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"I'm so sorry for everyone I let down," the R&B singer further noted. "I'm sorry to my costars director, producers, the studio and crew I feel horrible we're both trying to stay in the best of spirits but the empath in me can't help but think of others."
