Fortune is shining down on Chris Brown. After his double wins at this month’s BET Awards, the R&B superstar finds himself back on top of the charts with his fifth album.

Fortune enters at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts with 134,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Propelled by the singles “Turn Up the Music” and “Till I Die,” the album marks Brown’s second No. 1 debut following 2011’s Grammy-winning F.A.M.E. (270,000).

In addition to his success in the U.S., Fortune reigns on top of the charts in the U.K. and the Netherlands. Brown also scores career bests in Ireland and France at No. 4, Japan at No. 5, Canada at No. 6, Switzerland at No. 10, and Germany at No. 13.

Elsewhere on the Billboard charts, Flo Rida comes in at No. 14 with his hit-filled album Wild Ones. The project, which boasts the smash singles “Good Feeling,” “Wild Ones,” and “Whistle,” moves 31,000 units in its opening week.
