Alicia Keys took to Twitter on Friday evening to do something we never saw coming: cosign XXXTentacion.

In a now-deleted tweet, the singer posted a video of her and her son Egypt playing the piano and singing X’s song “What Are You So Afraid Of,” with the caption, “Such a vibe!! Big love to the talented @xxxtentacion !! Gone too soon.” The song is from his first posthumous album Skins, which was released in December 2018.

However, Keys deleted the tweet after a few hours, amid backlash. Twitter users were responding to her video en masse, and while some commended her, some were really not digging her song selection, given the late rapper’s lengthy record of abuse.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed in Florida in June. At the time of his shooting, he was awaiting trial for domestic violence charges against his pregnant girlfriend.
