CHRIS BROWN’s ALBUM F.A.M.E GOES GOLD
Multi-talented artist Chris Brown’s fourth studio album F.A.M.E. (Jive Records) has just been certified gold by the R.I.A.A. just three weeks after its release. The singer/songwriter earned his first chart-topping album debut when F.A.M.E. secured the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts with total album sales of over 271K.
F.A.M.E. spawned three consecutive No. 1 singles and is the third highest-selling debut album of the year. Brown reached his third successive No. 1 Urban Mainstream with his single “Look At Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes. This is the single’s 5th consecutive week at No. 1 on the chart and its first week at No.1 at Rhythmic radio.
On the heels of the gold certification, Brown just released his new mid-tempo single “She Ain’t You” which is already showing early signs of success. The track was # 1 most added at Urban Mainstream and for two weeks in a row a Top 5 greatest gainer at the format. The single will impact at the Rhythmic radio format this week. Brown co-wrote the majority of F.A.M.E., the follow-up to his 2X Grammy-nominated 2009 album, Graffiti. Collaborations on the album include Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Ludacris, among others.
