The predictions proved to be right - Chris Brown has arrived at the top of the charts this week.
The singer, who has made headlines with his outburst at “Good Morning America," has achieved his first No. 1 album with his latest effort, “F.A.M.E.”
According to Billboard.com, the record sits atop the Billboard 200 chart with 270,000 sold. That entry marks his second-best sales week, only surpassed by his 2007 sophomore record “Exclusive,” which hit No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 294,000 sold.
His other albums, 2005’s self-titled debut “Chris Brown” and 2009’s “Graffiti,” landed at No. 2 and No. 7 on the chart, respectively.
"I wanna thank all of my fans for making my album number 1 in the country!! I love you! We did it," Brown tweeted Tuesday. "I live for my music!! I survive for my fans!!!"
Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson settles into the No. 2 spot this week with her second album, "I Remember Me," selling 165,000, while Adele's "21" falls from No. 1 to No. 3.
He deserve it. Chris just keep you hands to yourself. Everyone deserves a second chance.
So proud of Chris, he worked his tail off to prove himself musically and it paid off. He deserves to be numero uno and Im happy for him. FAME is a great album glad I bought it.
FAME in stores now...go get it
I bought zero albums. This stuff is crap! Don't support a jig-a-boo cracked out freak that is probably a fruit. He may be one of the biggest fairies around!! See ya.
I bought two albums. One for myself and one for my cousin. Keep your head up Chris.
I am a lezbo and I wanna hook up with some butch dykos! I really wanna strap on a fat meat stick and ram them in da pooper! Let's get bizzy!!
I am actually a certified ho-mo! I love to ram da poop chute of young men and I also schlob their knobs. I walk real funny cause my pooper is really loose. The anal drip is brutal!
Yo all chris brown fans!!He will soon a new album called L.AM.E. Lots of girls go nuts for some reason when they see gay dudes!!!Why do most girls do?They like that person who is gay because they give gay rubbings so they become lesbians.Lucky im not that girl.Chris Brown sucks eggs.
CHRIS BROWN SUCKS!!! HIS MUSIC, SOUNDS, LIGHTING, AND STYLE IS COPIED FROM THE BLACK EYED PEAS BAND!!!
WHOA MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO?
Oh gag! Got to tell you though, his PR team must be excellent. All the hype, broken windows, ect really paid off for him. Too bad because I think his music still sucks.
His album is awesome–he has different genres of songs and they are all great. Chris is very talented.
ok...not really. but they were censoring all my comments which said the opposite. isn't that interesting!!
II LOVE Chris Brown and his music - it's the best thing since they invented music. He deserves to be number one. He's fantastic!
The only thing his sales demonstrate is that people will buy anything if you hype it enough. Just not what I call music. Auto-tune makes everyone sound like cyborgs. Takes the soul right out of the music.
Despite all the hate chris brown still has the # 1 album! Im so happy for him. Did u guys know that 18 million ppl watched chris on dancing with the stars yesterday. It was the # 1 show Ha! lol at all the chris brown haters.
I am happy for him also. I would never watch DWTS again, but I watched last night only to see Chris perform. He was amazing!!
Chris boys latest debacle has peeked...its all down hill from here ya little punk.
I still hate people from NJ! They are all nasal talking fools! All of them are fat and ugly! People up North are just disgusting and you can tell who they are on these disgusting comments! Only people from the north would hijack a person's name! Idiots!
When your husband divorces your fat redneck butt, will you still be brother and sister?
Hey, if I beat up some women, can I get a hit record, too?
Certainly, but you will need to come up with a few lame dance steps, an average singing voice, a synth machine to keep you in tune and some big stupid looking trucker hats.
My deal with Chris Brown's music is: I think he's a really, really good dancer and he probably can sing alright. I just wish he didn't use that "synthesizer-voice-over" in his songs. It makes it seem like he needs help with his singing and makes the quality of his voice weaker. I'd love to hear the real, unaided voice and see if it truly is good. I think all this voice covering does a dis-service to singing. It's why many folks say that there are few true singers anymore, and to me, it doesn't make the music sound better. Let's hear him sing, not lip-sync, with only his voice live and then I will praise his singing. But he is a superior dancer and performer. Get some more anger help and don't be a studio singer, Chris. Then you'll really deserve much praise. Just sayin' . . .
I agree. I wish he would listen to his fans and stop using autotune. Now, most musicians use synthesizers to get a clear, high quality, but autotune takes it to a whole other level. He's a great singer without it. Then again, he's going for that europop sound which is very digitalized.
yeah. i think they might be drunk maybe.
I aint bought no album in 30 years or more. Albums is for white peoples. I listen to them CDs myself. I gots me one of them new type HI FIs
Watch it Mister or I will *POOT* in your general direction.
Well albums don't usually hit really high numbers anymore right? Since most people just download music instead of buying albums.
Carefully crafted hype easily doubled his sales. Amazing what people can be fooled into wasting their money on. His marketing team has got to be awesome!
Only 270,000 in album sales...that doesnt seem like much at all and Im sure it will taper off dramatically over the coming weeks.
That's a lot, especially during this slow season. Rihanna's LOUD sold only 207K during it's first week. And it was released during the HOLIDAYS.
I would like to take a big steamy crap in his hat then smash it down on his head.
I am not a huge fan of his antics, but I have to admit his single, "Look at me now" is bumpin'. No shade here! Chris makes good music...
Seriously, can't deny that's a good song.
So Diva, when is "toeday"? does it come after "fingerday"?
I think it is actually after metatarsal day.
If only I had done as Chris axed I would be hib numba 1 wif dee numba 1 ablum. Chris I swear to Gawd nes time I will eat the doo doo from ya butt. Please don beat me again.
I knew he would be a winner ! He will be back to beating up girls in no time ! YES !
You so crazy!
Look at him wit dat fake@ss smile. Come on ova to R Kelly and I turn dimi pearly whites and dull yella stain.
I do like his songs, and that upsets me. I wish he could just be sorry for real.
And for the record, I am not a teacher, I don't much enjoy children.
Why can't you just like his songs but not like him? I like his music too, but I wouldn't wanna hang out with the guy.
okay u don't make any type of since saying that u are not a teacher u just said that yo third grade students and u said that u are not going to be giving homework and now u say that u r not a teacher u make no since
I knew doing a promo would pay off for Chris. Chris...pay up buddy! And now back to the soul train dancers and more of SOOOUUUuuuull Trraaaiinnn.
In celebration im not assigning my kids any homework toeday !
YEA SHE REALLY NEED TO
Not really surprising, I mean who's he even competing against? Jennifer Hudson? I actually wasn't even aware she was a musician.
Hater, everybody know Jennifer is the best singer in the world!! U jealous! ! Congrats to J-Hud for getting the #2 album in the star, not being the topical pop star such as Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady GaGa!!
"not being the topical pop star such as Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady GaGa!!"
Do you rub a topical pop star on your skin?
Do you have an Oscar?
Monkey Boy Chris Brown will no doubt be visiting a local jail near you. He is a loser.
YES ! I JUST KNEW HE WOULD OVERCOME YOU HATERS ! CHRIS MAKES MUSIC WE ALL CAN ENJOY ! I EVEN PLAY IT TO MY THIRD GRADE CLASS DURING REST TIME !
U IS SUCH A LIAR U JUST DISCRIBED THE OCCUPATION OF A TEACHER AND THEN U SAY UR THIRD GRADE CLASS SO HOW DAT GO U LIE ON DAH COMPUTER FIND A NEW WAY TO LIE CUZ DIS WAY AINT WORKIN SO NEXT TIME WHEN U LIE LIE STRAIGHT BOO NOT DAH WAY U GOIN CUZ U MESSED UP DAH WHOLE PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He only did better this time because this album was much better. I liked Graffiti, but his mixtapes were even better.
The guy is good at what he does, absolutely one of the best. That said, I wish everyone would get off his back...and I am not a fan. How long ago did the Rihanna thing happen? Geez. She has moved on, let him do the same. Why are people still asking him questions? Some of you spell like you haven't been to the third grade, concentrate on going back to school.
He still guilty of being a woman BEATER.
