Chris Brown Tops Chart with F.A.M.E.

Chris Brown

Chris Brown’s fans have spoken. After a tumultuous past couple years, the R&B singer has emerged back on top with his fourth album F.A.M.E.

The LP, led by the singles “Yeah 3X,” “Look at Me Now,” and “Beautiful People,” debuts at No. 1 on this week’s chart with 270,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

F.A.M.E., an acronym for Forgiving All My Enemies and Fans Are My Everything, marks Breezy’s first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 and second-best sales week of his career. His 2005 eponymous debut dropped at No. 2, 2007’s Exclusive landed at No. 4, and 2009’s Graffiti settled at No. 7.

The 21-year-old celebrated his success by bigging up Team Breezy. “I wanna thank all of my fans for making my album number 1 in the country!! I love you! We did it,” he tweeted. “I live for my music!! I survive for my fans!!!”

Elsewhere on the chart, Jennifer Hudson scores a No. 2 debut with her sophomore set I Remember Me, which moved 165,000 units. The digital-only charity compilation Songs for Japan sold 68,000 copies and enters at No. 6, while Bobby V’s Fly on the Wall rests at No. 9 with 38,000 and Lupe Fiasco’s third album Lasers drops from No. 3 to 10 with an additional 29,000 copies sold.

    @Lmaooooo, oh so you’ve moved to next week right? haterz are really relentless.

    Did you forget that you people said his career was over? Did you forget that you said, that he will never score a hit again?

    did you forget that you said he will never perform on national scale again? did you even dream that his 1st album afterwards will dabute at 1#?

    Did you forget that you said no artist would colaborate with him? dont you have any shame, moving on to the next week?

    He isnt in competition with Britney, she was there for over a decade b4 Chris came into the scene meaning she is suppose to have more fans than Chris especially now that Chris still has potential fans playing hard to get on the other side of the fence.

    Even tho its increasingly obvious that she isnt as great an entertainer as b4. but she is a mum to 3 kids so she is over. it would be a shame if she lets Chris over-take her that easily. She has all the media support & needs unlike Chris thats its almost word of mouth.

    She should start a dance school or a clothing line while she is still respected otherwise, she will lose her last credibility if she fails to deliver.

    As for Chris, its only proves a part of the Bible that says “let all men be liers and God’s word be true” & “one with God is a majority” & “with God all things are posible”.

    @King Makers, You are officially pressed. These long a** essay’s you’re writing are so contrived and foolish that no one is taking you seriously. Also throwing shade at other artist makes all you previous essays about “CB haters” so irrelevant…

Flop is apparently the ONLY word ya’ll dumbass know and now that you see him back on TOP with a Two No. 3 singles, a single in the Top Ten, singels all over the charts, a No. 1 movie, Three Grammy Nominationsand now a No. 1 album, the first in his career YOU fucking haters are so pissed off and you are trying to downplay his success! Fuck all ya’ll!! Chris is No.1!!! He is performing on mainstream shows again and his singles are killing the charts!

    Now STFU and sit your wack ass down somewhere!

    @VA 4 Life!, I see you’re reaching and just as pressed as King Makers. Yes i’m a fan of Rihanna, but when did I say I hate CB? Unlike you, i’m an ACTUAL FAN and YOU stans make it hard to even want to own up to that sometimes. Instead of trying attack everyone, you need to go to your English class because your spelling is atrocious…#Ican’t

    King Makers Reply:

    @Um.Well.Sure., Look I didn’t throw any shades on Britney, i wish her much success as well although i wished JIVE didn’t release both albums so close because it will seem like they are both in competition and they might be in the way of each other’s achievements as it stands, i’d have to choose between Chris & Brit.

    I don’t hate Riri as well although she allowed herself to be used as a destructive tool other than that, I’m cool. About that English class, I think thats being very cheeky & its not needed literarily. that could be your English teacher that you are dissing, comments on blogs are speanous nothing that important to proof read.

    King Makers Reply:

    @VA 4 Life!, : thanks Va 4 life, thats the word they all use “FLOP” how can an album that made 7# on the billboards be a flop? Now instead of eating their words, they are hoping he doesn’t make a 2nd week, when does this end? He has broken every standards you’ve set & yet you keep setting more. Look at his CV will spectacular achievements, is that something any artist can boast of given his circumstances? Please think

    @sagb, Yes I’mg glad cuz she really doesnt deserve it.. That would have been her 7th consecutive week at number 1 but it is only six making Ciara the only female since 1977 to have the longest running single with seven consecutive weeks With Goodies.

    The love we have for Chris is unbelievable. We want to see him survive in this music industry and not loose himself. Put God first Chris and all else will follow. God love you. We are proud of you, Chris and your performance on DWTS was mind blowing. I knew Chris was great but his performances was beyond my expectations.

    That’s certainly an accomplishment, good for him!! Congrats to Jennifer Hudson too, her album is amazing.

    [Reply]

    antonio Reply:

    @Kyle, how is this an accomplishment, the real accomplishment is Jennifer selling nearly 170K with no promo until 2 weeks ago, not announcing the release date until mid-February and not having a major hit single. Chris has 3 singles out, announced the release date months ago and created a lot of buzz and hype for this album with his mixtapes, and he only did just 270K, I really expected him to do about 350K. Another accomplishment would be Adele selling 355K with no promo in the U.S.until after her album was released.
