B. Smyth has died. He was 28. The R&B singer's older brother Denzil confirmed the tragic news with a video posted on B.Smyth's Instagram page Thursday, saying the "Win Win" singer, whose real name was Brandon Smith, "passed away this morning from respiratory failure after a long battle with pulmonary fibrosis."
"On behalf of my brother and my family we want to say thank you to all of you for all of your love & support throughout the years," Denzil wrote in the caption of the post. "We also want to say thank you for all of your prayers. #RIPBSMYTH Love you bro! ??????????"
In the video, he noted that his brother often talked about how he loved his fans and had been watching dance challenges for his latest released single "Twerkaholic, Pt.2" three weeks ago while he was in the intensive care unit at the hospital.
