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.
