American singer Chris Brown has apologised for throwing a hissy fit after losing to pianist and producer Robert Glasper for Best R&B Album at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb 5).

Sharing a screenshot of his message to Glasper in an Instagram Story, Brown wrote: "Congratulations my brother ... I would like to apologise if you took offence to my reaction at the Grammys. You were not the intended target and I know I came off really rude and mean.”

The 33-year-old then clarified that his intended target was in fact the Recording Academy who wasn't "doing us Blacks our due diligence".

"You and I should never be in the same category. Two totally different vibes and genres.

"So from one black man to another. Congratulations. Hope you are able to feed your family for life. God bless my G," he wrote.

Brown's apology comes almost a day after he mocked Glasper for winning the Grammy in a series of now-deleted Instagram Stories.

"Who the (expletive) is Robert Glasper," he wrote alongside a screenshot of his Google Search of the 44-year-old.

The With You hitmaker did not end his tirade there and went on to post an edited picture of himself playing the harmonica, seemingly taking a dig at Glasper's career as an accomplished pianist.

"New level unlocked! Harmonica Breezy," he wrote. "Gotta get my skills up. I'mma start playing the harmonica."

Glasper earned his fifth Grammy after nabbing the award for Best R&B Album with Black Radio III on Sunday. The album includes projects with Jennifer Hudson, Erykah Badu and Common.

Meanwhile, Brown received a nod for his 10th studio album, Breezy (Deluxe), which featured collaborations with Jack Harlow, Lil Wayne and H.E.R.

He was nominated alongside Mary J. Blige (Good Morning Gorgeous), Lucky Daye (Candydrip) and PJ Morton (Watch The Sun).

The singer previously won a Grammy for Best R&B Album in 2012 with his album, F.A.M.E.
