Fortune: Chris Brown Rockets To UK #1

Published: Sunday 8th Jul 2012 by David

The Prince Of Pop has struck again.

Yes, after spawning the smash hit single ‘Turn Up The Music‘ and wowing audiences worldwide with his 2012 BET Awards performance, today saw Chris Brown welcome more good news.

For today, his latest album ‘Fortune‘ rose to the top of the UK Albums Chart- marking his first ever #1 album in the country.

More below…

A mind blowing feat considering he hasn’t stepped foot in the country, the LP’s UK success arrives days before it is set to follow suit in the US, where it is also set to hit the top spot.

As if that wasn’t enough, today saw his latest single ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ edge closer to the #1 spot on the UK singles chart, after it rose to #2 on this week’s tally, one spot up from the #3 spot it held last week.

Congratulations!!

    Congratz to my baby!! Breezy is soooo s*** to me. He is the bad boy of music and he can perform his ass off.

    • truth July 8, 2012

      yeah a real bad boy. beating on girls, trashing buildings and verbally cussing everyone who doesnt lick his ass

      • Yea i said it July 8, 2012

        lol bad boy rite name, he sure damn well aint no real man!

      • Mob July 8, 2012

        YAWN, he and rihanna fault each other 3 years ago so I’m not sure what GIRLS <– you are referring to? If you want to talk about a guy that asulted WOMEN (pl.) you want to take about Drake's bottle throwing and running to the bathroom for cover arsh! Chris trashed no buliding nd he has never verbally accosted anyone who didn't verbally accost him first. As a freed black in America, you don't have to just sit back anymore and allow someone to abuse you as if it were 1776!

      • SimplyCourtt July 8, 2012

        There are always haters who are going to bring up his mistake made over 3 years ago. *yawn* you guys never get tired of this. But I have 1 question. Did you guys criticize Ike Turner for beating Tina’s behind until the day he died? Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

      • Raaawr July 8, 2012

        There is always some loser that has to negatively comment on every website or article that says something positive about Chris. Don’t you trolls have a real life or something? Why not comment or check out people YOU DO like? I know you are jealous of him but he could care less if you like him or not. His real fans get him to the top of the charts and we will never stop supporting him. So you are outta luck.

        P.S This article ‘aint about the haters so i’m gonna gonna get back to the real topic which is to congratulate Chris on his #1 in the UK. That says something about them. Great Fans. S/O to Netherlands, UK, US, New Zealand, Australia and Japan.

      • Journey Israel July 8, 2012

        Coursed be all Chris Brown haters! may they never have anything good in life just their evilness.

      • truth July 9, 2012

        this is another ‘truth’ not me. i love breezy and cant stand that those ym BASTARDS!

    • Mob July 8, 2012

      LOL, yes congrats indeed! chris Brown and TeamBreezyUK pulled off a miracle. I’m happy for all involved him and his devoted fans!

      • bom July 8, 2012

        So how much EXACTLY did he have to pay to achieve this ?. There has been so much speculation about this man that now nothing about him is credible.

        I so much want to support this guy as I used to be a Team Breezy BUT ever since all this man has done is antics (forget about the 3 years ago) like the Twitter Rants , Phone snatching incident, the bar brawl, the playing a victim attitude and offcourse the Rihanna Theraflue diss then we have the Drake Diss and then 52 states etc etc the list goes on – it has become obvious he has issues he needs to take a break and come back. I just cant bring myself to actually buy anything of his. Moreover he has done SO many songs with every Tom D*** and Harry he is forever on a music video or song after a while people become immuned to him. Its not like you can sit up an want to actually listen or say “Oh i missed him”. His music is nothing special – yes I have heard “dont judge me” and Mirage – which is what a Therflu 2.0 and Dont judge me is a confused apology.
        Chris i love you but go away for a while and then we will miss you becoz you may be Number 1 BUT your sales are not what they used to be and i expect better from you.
        As Oprah said to you – “Go and find the help you need”.
        Thats not shade thats the truth from a previous fan.
        Team Breezy – oh dont bother replying – I used to say all the crap you guys will say now . Use your enegry to motivate your fave to do better.

        Peace

      • Mob July 9, 2012

        @bom

        B*TCH, WTF ARE YOU BLATHERING ON ABOUT?

        NOTHING you have typed changes the FACT that Chris Brown, without media support (unlike every other successful artist in the industry), has acheived an incredible feat. STAY MAD, WORTHLESS SLUG ! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

        Wait did you quoted Oprah Windfrey?:

        1) Oprah Windfrey the former POSTITUTE (see Kitty Kelly’s Oprah biography) & CRACK SMOKER (see The Oprah Windfrey Show episode)?

        2) Oprah Windfrey who as you stated, spoke ill of against a teenger like Chris Brown while celebrating SERIAL WIFE BEATERS: JAMES TAYLOR (beat wife Carly Simon for many years), SEAN PENN (beat wives Madonna & Robin Wright-Penn), JEFF GOLDBLUM (beat wife Gina Davis), MICKEY ROURKE (beat wife Carrie Otis) & or course the great CHARLIE SHEEN (shot Kelly Preston, strangled pregnant Denise Richards, stabbed and beaten exwife Brook Muller).

        3) Oprah Windfrey who recently interviewed Jayz, Beyonce Knowles PET CAMEL knowing damn well he is a “former” DRUG DEALER who BEAT WOMEN (see Foxy Brown & Amil Lion) & who STABBED Un Riverea>

        Oprah Windfrey who was having s** with her cousin and his friend (I’m not talking about her being r**** by her uncle which was a trajedy)?

        4) Oprah Windfrey who has allowed the little girls at her school in Africa to be molested and abused?

        F*ck you and Oprah HYPOCRITE Windfrey

  2. the real xoxo July 8, 2012

    nobody will be playing this album come september. Fortune DEFINES “lackluster”.

    • Mob July 8, 2012

      You obviously have not heard it. Fortune is quite the undertaking and I’m glad he stretched his wings and wasn’t afraid to fly!

      • Plain & Simple July 8, 2012

        @Mob

        You are right Chris did stretch his wings

    • chianne July 8, 2012

      I too am lukewarm on the album – especially the four fillers on the deluxe. If you don’t have it yet, don’t bother with the deluxe!

      • Mob July 9, 2012

        He’ll be fine wihtout your support trust that! I love how certain ppl actively work against this young brother but it’s all good. Chris Brown stays #WINNING ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. kelly July 8, 2012

    Rihanna TTT is still in the top ten and she has a song in top 5 and one just outside of the top ten. Dont u dare take shots at Rih.

    • CBE July 8, 2012

      Chris is number 1 on Itunes UK and Number 2 on UK official singles chart with DONT WAKE ME UP.

      • Mob July 8, 2012

        And you forgot #1 on UK’s Digital Chart as well! God is good!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Mob July 8, 2012

      Who are you directing this post to becuase neither the byline above nor any of the comments above you mentioned Rihanna’s name 0_O?

  4. Benron July 8, 2012

    Um, many many male artist have topped that chart in the past year (even just 2 months)

    So by that logic, how is he prince. Well I guess I shudn’t question, he calls Rita princess so…

    • Mob July 8, 2012

      This post is not about who has topped the Charts in England before. It’s about Chris Brown doing it for the 1st time in his young career! And he has done it without being the media’s golden child (Bieber or Gaga etc) which really makes it something special. It’s easy to achieve the top spot when the media gives you a consatnt boost but CB just “steezed” on them from outside the BOX!

      **I feel a massive MEDIA RANT againt Chris Brown coming on real soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Plain & Simple July 8, 2012

        @Mob

        Yes! you better PREACH

      • chianne July 8, 2012

        Good point. Chris won’t be held down by powers that be. INcluding the media – but what media rant do you see coming? Just the negative reviews of Fortune? Yes they’ve been nasty – but not massive.

  5. Oh Yeah!!! July 8, 2012

    Congrats Breezy!!!!

  6. Yea i said it July 8, 2012

    rih has three #1 albums in U.K. good for him!

    • CBE July 8, 2012

      I saw the shade biaaatch!!! Chris will have 2 number 1s in the US.

      • OH_GREAT_ITS_HER July 9, 2012

        Hmm he won’t. He is still waiting for his last album to go platinum. Poor boy.

  7. Ethan July 8, 2012

    must everything be a goddamn comparison? bye

    Congrats to the prince of R&B

    • Yea i said it July 8, 2012

      dont make me laugh…………all this pop s*** aint R&B

      • Mob July 8, 2012

        Have oyu listened to Fortune? It is most definitely more R&B then pop/dance/hip hop!

    • truth July 8, 2012

      saying chris brown is r&b is like saying nicki minaj is a hip hop artist.

      • OH_GREAT_ITS_HER July 9, 2012

        Lol. You know it. He is pop and very bad pop it is too.

    • Girrrl July 8, 2012

      Prince of R&B? hahaha
      R.Kelly is the King
      Usher is the Prince
      Chris Brown is just another singer with a lisp and autotune.

      • Lax July 8, 2012

        @GIRRRL COSIGN

      • CBE July 8, 2012

        Atleast CB does sing RnB sometimes and Pop too, its called being versatile and the Navy is all over this post or is it some bored people who always have no business on a CB post, you not a fan so WHAT are you all doing here?

      • Mob July 8, 2012

        YAWN…… and use R. Kelly is the King of R&B. I’m not sure where Usher falls on the “music royal chart”? Perhaps he’s the Prince of R&B and Pop like young Chris?

      • F*CKTHEHATERS July 8, 2012

    Chris Brown clinches a personal best today, going straight to Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart with his latest release, Fortune.โ€จโ€จ

    The 23-year-old US R&B singer’s fifth full-length album has knocked Linkin Park’s Living Things off the top spot, outselling its closest competitor, Maroon 5’s Overexposed (Number 2) by 11,000 copies.

    • White girl mob July 8, 2012

  12. hate me July 8, 2012

    good for him, why are people bringing rihanna in this.

    how much did it sell?

    and Uk loves the euro techno sound. Artists that does this type of music is pretty much asking for their attention. U.S. haters of ths music suffers.

    • Mob July 8, 2012

      Yes, but Fortune is more contemporary R&B than Euro-Dance/Pop. It truly has a unique sound and will stand alone in the genre!

      As for Rihanna, they have to mention her in an attempt to stop his shine. They (like the feminazi oriented media) just don’t realize the expiration date is well overdue on that one! ๐Ÿ™

    Prince of pop? hhahahahahha

    FISTopher FLOPPED as the GREAT LACEFRONCE predicted

    FLOP singles FLOP album ๐Ÿ™‚

    • CBE July 8, 2012

      UK is number 1 and US also it doesnt matter if he sold less in the states but I know those UK numbers will boost sales WW and it will do great in Australia, I have to admit Chris has huge fanbases in Australia and UK “WHO BUY HIS STAFF”

      The US Teambreezy is behind and in all honesty I think its because of his antics but since TUTM everyone became upset after he did a song with Rihanna and it went downhill…as for calling him a flop? well in the US yes.

      • bom July 8, 2012

        did you mean Stuff and not STAFF .. becoz who would actually want to by Karrueche . Even if she was thrown in for free I would still return her goods .

      • Mob July 9, 2012

        @CBE

        But he’s not a FLOP in the US. That would indiate he had an equal chance of success which he did not! Chris Brown is the only artists in which something that occured in his teenage past (3 years ago) is frequently mentioned as though it happened yesterday! And believe me that was done by design (media manipulation & control).

        Chris Brown is NOT under a group (GOOD, YMCMB, MMG, G-Unit) he is on his own. Unlike say a Drake who is constantly promoted by the group of ppl who leech off him….LOL, I mean sponsor him (“contract all f*** up I guess that mean’s you’re all f*** up” ~ PushaT Exodus 23:1) Chris Brown is solo artist who must self-promote!

        Unlike say Drake (half-white & Jewish Canadian) or Justin Bieber (white Canadian), who are highly favored in America ironically, the crazy dynamics against a young African-American male succeeding is just……..ummm…… ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ……. Especially when he does not play by the POWER STRUCTURE’S organized set of rules! Chris was to stay out of the music industry for awhile until they blazed a trail for his return (“You made me who I am from the words you said” ~ Champion Chipmunnk ft Chris Brown) he just refused to FOLLOW THE RULES/PLAN & worked outside the BOX using social media and building his brand through his team!

        **A FLOP…….NAH, HE NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO BE!

  17. Mob July 8, 2012

    All I can say is CONGRATULATIONS Chris Brown. There has been a mammoth effort against him for quite sometimes. It’s nice to know God has promise regardless of what comes against any of us! Yeah 3X kid!

    **Haters are going to hate oh well I guess somebody’s got to! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • CBE July 8, 2012

      Teambreezy need to let him know publicity stunts is not the way… that s*** pisses me off as a fan, I didnt care about him defending himself on the attacks he gets from twitter that is human nature but if you look at the trend from Grammys 2012, he was doing good TUTM debuted number 9 ok solid! now he goes and does a collab with Rihanna there is a backlash from both fanbases, Birthday Cake does well(remember its a Rihanna song), now which Chris brown single entered the US top 20 on Itunes or Billboard after that? He is involved in feuds with irrelevant people who he could just ignore and then to top it off Drake was a scapegoat and everyone was on Chris side until he released that diss track FOR WHAT? smh…I cant with him sometimes.A while back someone mentioned Rihanna as part of the illuminati circle as some type of queen or princess in the industry( yeah princess? lol!) but when you think about it: what if she used CB in february when he was getting his life together and brought him back to square one with the media and fans, wild conspiracy? well I dont see Rihanna taking Chris back or hanging out…her so called “I dont give a f*** attitude” is theatre.

      • Mob July 8, 2012

        On some level I totally agree with you! That Cake Remix was a horrible idea dreamed up by RF and the backlash against CB has been tremendous! I need him to just let her live and stay away from her.

        Drake is not a scapegoat but the person responsible for cuasing that foolishness that injured all those folks including many women! Correction he didn’t release a diss track he is merely a feature on a remix. I don’t think he should have bothered but I do understand his position. The media has turned this mess into a fight two ppl were engaged in instead of what it actully was AN ATTACK ON CHRIS BROWN, TONY PARKER & A TABLE FULL OF WOMEN by Drake’s fake ass and his crew! I would be p*** off too I’m not going to lie! But again, I do see your point!

      • Raaawr July 8, 2012

        I do agree with you that it was a huge mistake for him to collab with Rihanna. She never really cared about him. She collaborated with him because it would give her more attention. She basically used him to get her name in the media. After Birthday Cake went to number 1 on urban radio she unfollowed him on Twitter and never even gave team breezy credit for them helping getting the song somewhere. I never got the sense from her that she cared about him, she is just a user. Chris is a much better artist than her and has many talents. She doesn’t even hold a candle to him.

      • bom July 8, 2012

        And she “held” his ahem ….. and dragged him into the studio . I get it and so thats why he has got so much of crap from everyone . I think they BOTH got some backlash for that not just him more her for even go back to associate with him. She has lost fans because of that but the problem is deeper than that. Chris has brought this on himself by his lack luster performances at award shows, his general attitude, twitter (he certainly does NOT need to lets us know everything), lipsynching at performances(come on son – i expect better of THE Chris Brown – he is supposted to be MJ’s heir). I used to like Chris and I cant see why for what reason he is turning out to become some sort of thugish, heavily tattoed, drugish looking bootleg tupac. I really wish he could clean up his act . I wish for it and i pray for it . He comes across pretty lost and clueless. Get it together Breezy and you need to get new people around you starting from those closest to you they seem to be leading you away from becoming a great person

        Peace

    Can we please have the sales figures, that is all we care about. Drake can push 700K in the first week, we would like to know what motor-mouth hot-head Breezy can push in the first week. TGJ, don’t get lazy, go dig up those sales figures.

    In unrelated news, Rihanna’s “Talk that Talk” is still in the UK Top ten and “Loud” is in the Top 100 at #60, all you Beyhives will deal because your fav is embarrassingly at #93, maybe more Kim Kar-trash-ian photos hmmm.

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) July 8, 2012

      This is about the UK, not the USA where Drake sold 700,000 first week. Just saying. But yeah I would like to know his first week numbers in the UK too

      • kai July 8, 2012

        Drake is a lil wezzy sound alike he was on degrassi sounding wack as hell. He need a knew sound to all yall think you know hip hop listen to 80s rap stars he need to practice more . Need a stylist he look to old to be a rapper fuckun old man lookin a**.LMAO

    • Mob July 8, 2012

      You mean BABY can point, click and purchase alot of CDs LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Drake is a Rapper and Chris Brown is an R&B star I don’t see how the two’s sells figures equate in the least? Drake is loved by the media, he is half and half, Jewish and non-American which makes him a safe Rapper to promote in biased America! Again, I dont see the connect between the two 0_O?

        Again in America 26yr old Drake for many reasons, is a media darling much like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, LMFAO (son & nephew of MOTOWN Founder Berry Gordy) etc. 23yr old Chris Brown is simply not! Drake is a Rapper & Chris a R&B star. They are marketed differently. “Playing the V-Card”…LOL, I think not but that’s a nice try!

      @Beyonce’s weave —

      re: “In unrelated news, Rihannaโ€™s โ€œTalk that Talkโ€ is still in the UK Top ten and โ€œLoudโ€ is in the Top 100 at #60”

      And Rihanna has promo’ed the HELL outta that album! I mean, she even did photo ops in the “tube”, yes?

      ..A #1 U.K. album, and Chris Brown has YET to set foot upon U.K. soil! But just YOU wait till he starts his world tour – as with all tours, it’ll cause a spike in ‘Fortune’ sales.

      Here’s “related” news – NEWSFLASH: “Tax-cheat Rihanna” is about to be convicted of felony tax evasion. The IRS does NOT care about who did her taxes, they only care about HER getting them done! They don’t care about her “long” face after her granny’s funeral. THE IRS WANTS THEIR MONEY!

      Rihanna, according to the IRS, did the very same as Lauren Hill – look at what happened to HER!!

      Not unlike ‘Wheelchair Jimmy’, “enjoy” your Rihanna while you can. After she does to Federal Prison, they’re going to revoke her visa/deport and PERMANENTLY ban her from the U.S.! She was finished anyways. I mean, Nicki Minaj is the NEW “IT GIRL”, and Rita Ora is the apple of Jay-Z’s eye.

      *sigh..* Sucks to be Riri right ’bout now: no more granny to use for photo ops, ’bout to be sent to prison AND deported/banned for life from the U.S..!!

      You see, really, really BAD things happen to BAD people..!!

      X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

      • Lax July 9, 2012

        Rihanna isn’t running from the tax man shes hitting her taxes and this tax mess head on, it did not say she cheated it stated that shes getting audited and it could happen to you, and me.

      • Lax July 9, 2012

        @XYZ,,,But it’s like smaLL D*** LIKE YOU TO BRING UP WHAT YOU DEEM AS DIRTY LITTLE THINGS THAT HAPPENS TO RIHANNA BUT JUST AS LONG AS YO ASS KNOW THAT SHE MADE THAT FORBES IN 20010 AND 1002 AND I KNOW THAT HAVE GOT YO ASS SEEING COLD HARD CASH AND IF NECESSARY SHE HAS THE FUNDS TO HANDLE THE TAX MAN YOU HAD BETTER HOPE THAT THE ACCOUNTANTS AND HER HANDLERS CAN ESCAPE THE HEAT THAT IS GOING TO BE SHINNING ON THEIR ASSES THEY OR THE ONE’S WHO OVERCHARGED RIHANNA AND SHE PAID THEIR ASSES THE SUIT SAYS…BUT SHE OVER PAID ACCORDING TO LAW IT’S ONE THING TO OWE THE TAX MAN AND DON’T HAVE THE FUNS AND IT’S ANOTHER TO HAVE OVER PAID AND HAVE GOT PROOF, ASS HOLE.

      • bom July 8, 2012

        Still didnt . thats pretty low for a “superstar” like Chris . Thats an unbiased opinion. His PR is not working hard enough.
        Just look at what FAME did . People are not that intrested in him now by the looks of the numbers.

  26. Breezy July 8, 2012

    Now y’all haters can STFU chris brown don’t wake me up surpass 500k in the UK IT HAS SOLD 97.000 copies this week and fortune sold 130k biggest debut of the year teamBreezyuk we rocks

        Obviously you do or you wouldn’t have clicked on a Chris Brown post about his CD Fortune being #1 on the UK MAIN CHART, the R&B CHART and the DIGITAL CHART!

        @Breezy,

        Wow, DWMU has sold 500k damn.!..LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ TeamBreezyUK is not playing this go around! Kudos!!

    • hunni2nice July 8, 2012

      I have looked at the UK official charts and there’s no mention of ANY SALES FIGURES!

      • Mob July 8, 2012

        That person is speaking of the biased American chart figures but who cares! Chris Brown is slaying in places he’s yet to visit which means more to me then American sells figures. With all the negative press the media gives him everyday (Drake & his male crew attacks Chris and a group of women at a club yet CB is somehow to blame), I’m surprised he sold at all in the biased US media driven market!

  28. OpD2 July 8, 2012

    gratz to him.

  29. Girrrl July 8, 2012

    Congrats TGJ CB just retweeted this article.

  30. 730handler1 July 8, 2012

    Everyone has made mistakes in their life and pretty sure each one here or has or has someone close to you that done something regrettable. Only God can truly judge us. Let Chris grow and learn from his mistake. While you condemn him you condemn yourself…wts Chris Brown is blessed with what many of us lack because he is a star in many eyes.

    • truth July 9, 2012

      i have never made anyone unconcsious, i have never destroyed someones face. did you read that police report? that wasnt a mistake, that was a serious assault. if any normal guy done it, they would be in jail right now.

  31. SimplyCourtt July 8, 2012

    Congrats Chris, you deserve it. You’ve overcome so much in the past few years.

  32. melody July 8, 2012

    I’m so proud of Chris. Congrats to the UK team. A big wet kiss for you CBE. I love you!

    And Im proud of him no matter what anyone says

  36. Zoe July 8, 2012

    I don’t understand why half of you are in these comments talking about something that happened a while ago. This article is about Chris and HIS achievements, so either congratulate him or please take your ignorant self elsewhere. Whether you like him or not, he’s doing big things. Like the article says, he hasn’t stepped foot here yet he’s #1. Plus, he’s balling and you’re sitting behind a screen hating. Good day.

  37. Jen July 8, 2012

    Im sure CB sits back and laughs at all the haters, he still doing his thing regardless of what others have to say. Love him for that…be true to you and only you, remember you are young and have plenty of life ahead of you, please don’t settle for less if you aim, aim high remember that your first love is your true love and to be able to forgive makes it even more real…xoxoo

    • bom July 8, 2012

      i’m pretty sure he reads all the comments how else would be actually pay some sort of acknowledegement to this website

      Chris – you need better people around you as you surely can do better than this ?. Clean up your act (no shade)

  38. X,Y,”and Z” July 8, 2012

    A #1 U.K. album and he’s YET to tour to support that CD?!

    ..In a word: Incredible! Other people, for no other reason than PR purposes, are pictured riding the tube; on every conceivable U.K. media outlet – Graham Norton, BBC, etc, etc, etc…

    When ‘Team-Breezy U.S.’ sees what ‘Team-Breezy U.K.’ has now done, it’ll kick ’em into high gear…

    @Team-Breezy U.S. – Time to pick up the slack!! (Time for ME to get my a** up on these blogs and shake some trees)

    X,Y,”and Z”

  41. hiafa July 9, 2012

    Breezy CD is the best , the greatest, it like he went back to his roots ballads and I LOVE them all!! All I can say is Chris is a head of all the singer out there! And I bought both CD the regarler one and the one with the extra-songs on them and the extra songs are the best I love them!! Everyone should get a copy I say both copies, if not, get at less one, the one with the extra songs on them, they are beautyful songs, you don’t want to miss listening to any of Chris’s songs! So go and get it!! LOVE YOU BREEZY

  42. zania July 9, 2012

    I love his new album but, I wish CB will start working on himself and stay out of all the drama. I really believe that the latest diss to drake separated some of his fans that were Drake and CB fan, they had to choose. And the love triangle with Karrueche, and Rihanna, Divided his fans into four, Team Kae, Team Chrianna, Team Breezy, and just Chris Brown fan. He needs all the attention back on him not his women. He needs to stay out of clubs and find something else to do instead of partying all the time. He has the worst PR team this year, they failed him big time. I am very upset of his sales in US, it should’ve been higher. His sales in the US is right back where he started after the incident. After his fans worked so hard over the last two years in helping him get back to the top. I remember when some of fans were leaving the team because they felt he choose Kae over them. CB should’ve never allow so much attention to his GF, and if they were doing it to improve his image, his PR team failed again, because all the comments on the mainstream blogs still doesn’t acknowledge him being in a steady relationship. They are still calling him a Woman Beater. What his PR team failed to realize is she isn’t a celebrity and the public will look at it as she will take abuse just to be with a millionaire. Now if he wanted to improve his image, using a relationship, he should’ve dated a celebrity to get a positive result. Ok just had to release my thoughts on the whole situation. Very proud of CB getting his firts #1 album in the Uk. Get yourself together CB.

    • Mob July 9, 2012

      Ummm, Yes and NO!!

      I would love to be on his PR Team! I’d get him and the media together at the same time. He needs more of an image consultant at this point and turst me EVERYONE HAS or HAS HAD ONE throughout the course of their career be they in films, TV, athletics or the music industry! He needs to stay away from ppl who are only out to leech off his success (The GAME etc).

      The Game knowing damn well Chris was to perform on the BET Awards that Sunday and had a major CD release that Tuesday, rushed him into the studio to do a bootleg (ALBEIT FUNNY AS HELL & TRUE) remix diss abt “Drake-EVELYN”! That mess could have really waited to be released in a few weeks from now had CB still felt the need to get it off his chest!! As I stated, considering the backlash he received for DOING NOTHING AT ALL but celebrating Teyana Taylor’s new record deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music group along with NBA Star Tony Parker, I can see why he wanted to do a diss! However, the ppl around him should have advised him against such an action.

      Chris Brown needs to remember who he is and what he has yet to accomplish in the music industry (THE ENEMY DOESNT MOUNT AN ATTACK AGAINST FOLKS GOD HASN’T BLESSED WITH GREAT PROMISE & THAT APPLIES TO ALL OF US)! “Certian” folks have gone as far as they will ever go. That is simply not his fate! He needs to accept that responsibility and keep moving his dancing feet past “certain ppl”!

      As for what the BIASED & VERY RIGGED American media is going to report, he really has no control over that! Chris Brown is a young black man. There is no black leadership, especially in the media. The blacks in the media merely parrot what the popular society dictates. There is very little he can do about what the press says concerning his teen past while they of course coddle actual WIFE BEATERS like Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn, Jeff Goldblum, Nicholas Cage, Christian Slater, Glen Campbel, Alan Jackson, John McEnroe, Robert Downey Jr., Tommy Lee etc.

  43. i&i(yardie) July 9, 2012

    Congrats to CB and teambreezyUK. Its genius of him to decide not to do any interviews and rely on social media only but if he had kept focused on the music and let it speak for itself and not get sidetracked by all the drama then things would have gone a lot better for him in the US. The drama turned me off as well as a lot of other people. Oh well, you live and you learn. Most experiments never got right the first try. I hope from now on “him see and blind hear and deaf” to all the b******* and let his music speak for itself, the way he had hoped.

  44. i&i(yardie) July 9, 2012

    TGJ and Sam, unuh thing tup up now. Bap bap bap! Chris twitter link led me to here. Big things a gwaan fi unuh. LOL

    Poor boy is flopping U.S, though. Never mind.

    • Debbie July 9, 2012

      B****, how is he flopping in a country were the media does nothing but attack him no matter what he does? They attack him so on a daily basis? Whatever he does in America is wonderful. He’s numbers are great considering they leaked his CD days before it was released. His numbers are similar to those of Usher whoes CD wasn;t purposefully leaked and was heavily promoted. Usher has been on many tv programs and mag covers promoting his CD for months.

  46. robyn July 9, 2012

    Purchased CD this weekend, has some nice tracks. My favorite so far is Don’t Judge Me. I love love love that song.

  47. lol July 9, 2012

    Album sold 29,980 and single sold 70,702.

  48. Kristin S. July 10, 2012

    If people don’t like him then why waste your time reading this? I guess haters don’t have anything better to do with their lives. I guess in a way y’all haters keep him at number 1. So thanks to y’all Chris Brown is number 1. I guess the joke is on y’all haters lol. Congrats to Chris Brown for Fortune being number 1 in UK TeamBreezy!!!
