    RIght. THis is definitely Good for todays Music Industry Climate. However. Chris Along with several other producers mentioned that Initially and Originally Fortune in the Beginning was already done. And Album of already finished songs. However, In recent interviews, he made it clear that He and his team completely scrapped that idea Wrote, Produced, & Recorded an entire new album. They only Kept 3 of the older songs on it. Everything Else is Brand New. Either Way. It’s Still A Success. Chris Lives, Breathes, And Eats Music & Art. He’s Like Mayweather in The Gym.. Just replace the Gym With a Recording Studio.

    The industry is different because people don’t want people’s crap anymore. And let’s be honest there’s nothing special about Chris’ album and there is still alot of people (rightfully) against him.

    People need to quit making excuses. Adele can sell 22 million albums so obviously things haven’t changed that much (besides the album quality getting shittier and shittier)

    Good for him debuting at #1 but a sad reflection on the music industry. Anytime albums debut at #1 with such low numbers that means a very small fraction of people are buying music and the music industry needs to catch up to technology and marketing used by a broader base of consumers.

    You have not seen nothing yet. Artist will be buying their own music very soon. The best of the best will have low sales. Now that we have illegal downloads music buying will not be the same anymore.Frank Ocean who came out the closet is doing well for now. This might be the only album or song people will buy. But anyway Congrats to Frank Ocean

    @Jeff, what does Frank Ocean’s sexuality have to do with anything? That whole “Frank Ocean who came out of the closet..” statement was unnecessary. As an artist, his sexual orientation should have nothing to do with the quality of work that he produces ( which is beautiful, btw). If you’re going to buy the album, buy it. If not, that’s cool too..but leave trivial things such as who somebody chooses to go to bed with, out of it.

    Face it. There’s nothing respectable about it. Justin Bieber more than doubled Usher and Chris sales, even Lionel Richie outsold Chris and Usher. I’m sure they are disappointed over these sales while their die hards are trying to find a way to sugar coat it. They will struggle to go GOLD, and may never go platinum.

    This IS NOT a respectable number, do not blame the industry “problems” of people selling less and less albums for it, he just flopped.

    Interviews are key Chris, they will make people like you, singles < interviews. Singles litterally give awareness to the album, but sitting your ass in a chair and persuading people for 15 mins will sell copies.

    Rihanna, Pink, Beyonce, and Lady Gag-a are putting out new albums, they will all sell at least 70k more than this.

    Chris' fans always blame every1 else. He flops bcuz the media hates him, or he gets "tricked" by people into acting the fool. He needs to GROW UP and do some s*** for himself. Because ONE team breezy fan does more positive campaign for him then in 3 hours than he does in a year. He isn't trying, lyp-syncing will turn us off from ur performance no matter how many moves you have.

    Please find yourself on America's best dance crew with Ciara and all those other dancing hoes who think they can sing.

    U don’t represent the whole demographic. Sure it’s very unfair to say that not all black people don’t buy albums, but it isn’t wrong to say that they don’t either.

    There is definitely a bigger sum of white people who buy albums over black people, it can be statistically proven through holiday sales, where white people go out in droves to buy albums, (Pink Friday for example).

    You backwoods, billy goat-looking b****, how are you going to accredit Chris Brown’s lackluster-ass sales to a whole race of people? Chris Brown has only released gay-ass European pop music that has failed to leave any impression on the charts, leading to his album’s horrible-ass sales. The funny thing is that when he released F.A.M.E., he had a huge urban single, and his albums sales were 281,000 copies, you not knowing how to punctuate-ass motherfucker. Plus, if black people don’t buy music, then why is Drake’s album Take Care the second highest selling album eligible for this year’s Grammy Awards? You Chris Brown fans are always trying to blame someone else for that motherfucker’s failures when, in actuality, it’s no one’s fault but his. Despite what you think, the album f****** sucks, and no one – and I mean motherfucking no one, regardless of race – will waste hard earned money on a shitty album. Stop trying to generalize others and go buy that motherfucker’s album if you’re so worried about his sales, you racist-ass p****.

    Why do Folks on this site insist on praising one artist while bringing another one down? So what does Frank Ocean’s success have to do with Chris Brown? I respect Frank and his music but dude is not all end of be all of music…Chris sabotaged himself but dude’s been in the game since his was like 14-15…many artists don’t make it past 3 years…Also, Frank has media, hipster mags, hispters, twitter, Hova, Beyonce, and almost every1 else support….He wasn’t shunned at all…Fortune got blasted by Critics, like 40 on Metacritic…I’m not the biggest Chris Brown fan, but dude did pretty well considering all the negativity he produces and follows him….I already know Frank will probably outsell both Chris and Usher…that doesn’t make him better…Frank is what is hot right now and much deserved but it takes nothing away from Chris or Usher…Frank is the album to have right now, bet he goes Platinum…

    Who “come out of nowhere” and are suddenly everywhere.

    That’s how you get millions of sales now.

    Which is stupid, but it seems people can’t seek out music themselves anymore. Even though it’s easier now than ever. Doesn’t stop people from clinging to the past of music, and complaining about ALL new music though.

    All the while they ignore all the good ish out because they’re derps.

    Ha! It’s not a flop cause it’s #1, but it’s low. Just a lil more then Usher and CB had the 4th of July sales. And his fans want to call Rihanna a flop, she may not ever went to #1, but she sells pretty well. I don’t see these albums going over the 500k mark. Singers/labiles are gonna have to WORK to get money now.

    #TeamBreezy With all these excuses #smh After joining in with everyone saying “TTT is a flop” “4 is a flop and “Born this way isn’t a flop but thats only because it was on the born this way was on the mcdonalds dollar menu.” <- (thats just me but…)

    When ya'll were predicting 500k+ (I heard many 1 millions) he debuted small and your all salted as f***. No shade but chris is NOT a big artist, like Adele, Lionel Richie or taylor swift who brings in HUGE SALES.

    He cannot sell like Beyonce (used to) or Usher (used too) because he is not even that big. He cannot even bring in BIG "popstar" numbers like Rihanna (207k) or Katy (190k). H should go back t oR&B, he will sell more than this then!

    LOL@you claiming Rihanna brings in “Big popstar numbers.” When? When did she ever do that. TTT opened with less than 200k in its first week — and that was during the week of Black Friday, and she had the #1 single at the time. She should have done 500k+. If she released her album in hot ass July, during a slow music sales season, she wouldn’t have done any better than Chris.

    Alienate your Drake fans, Nicki fans, Rihanna fans, Lil’ Wayne fans, get “TeamBreezy” to do your evil bidding of insulting other artists (XYZ, TGJ, Samantha, other TeamBreezy members) and behave like a hood rat every chance you get, this is the end result.

    These numbers are poor, Drake can shift 700K copies in one week, the only thing he (Fistopher Brown) has to rely on now is longevity and that is lacking judging by the hot-mess singles I have heard so far. This is a bad year for TeamBreezy, I told XYZ to stockpile multiple copies of “unfortunate” and he never listened, too bad I guess…lmao.

    Black people do buy albums! I hate that excuse. My black ass went to the store and bought all of the following albums by black artists in the past year:
    4
    TTT
    Looking 4 Myself
    MF Life
    Take Care
    Watch the Throne
    and many more.
    When singers put out music consumers think is worth buying, they will.

    my bad if this is a double post.

    Not going ot read other comments because I don’t give a f*ck, but I will say:

    1) Drake & Crew attacked NBA star Tony Parker, Chris Brown, Teyana Taylor and a table filled with women at W.i.P nightclub. The RACIST AMERICAN MEDIA spent 1 month BLAMING CHRIS BROWN (not the true villian half white Jewish Canadian Aubrey Drake whatever?) although he was just one of the many INNOCENT VICTIMS brutially attacked that night! The media has spent EVERYDAY CRITICIZING CHRIS BROWN…..EVERYDAY FOR THAT FIGHT HE DID NOT CAUSE……EVERYDAY INCLUDING TODAY, 7/10/12!

    2) Chris Bown’s CD leaked a weak prior and instead of simply releasing his CD on iTUNES the minute it leaked RCA’s f*cking a$$es did nothing. Had they released the CD immediately they would have recouped some of their losses!

    3) Every DAMN time Chris Brown releases a CD Rihanna does a pity party interview to remind the world that she hit Chris 1st…oh wait she never tells that truth about that! We hear the same tired bullsh** story about her lack of a lovelife….but yet Aston Kutcher, Meek Mill, Drake, J cole, JayZ, and God knows how many others have chopped her down. Why not discuss yoyour failed 1 year relationship with Matt Kemp? Right no one would give a damn if you were not trying to help them bring down Chris Brown!

    4) Justin Bieber sold his CD at $6.99 & moved 370 units with all the media promotion and constant positive press he receives. Usher Raymond had equal airtime and media favor but sold 128K. Chris Brown and Usher Raymond sold theirCDs at regular $12.99 prices. What this indicated to me is had they sold their CDs for half the price like Justin, they would have doubled their profits! What type of game is really being played in the MUSIC INDUSTRY? Where are the Break downs per digital sells & pre-oders. Why do these charts count point-of-purchase (retail) sells only? What are the Worldwide figures and in how many countries was the CD released in cause that seems to be different per artists? Frank Ocean’s CD was just released on iTUNES all over the world. Chris Brown’s CD on iTUNES was rolled out in increments meaning not all countries were able to purchase. SOME COUNTRIES ARE STILL AWAITING A RELEASE DATE! This process seems crazy to me!

    I’m very pleased that he was able to move any units in the USA with the RACIST AMERICAN MEDIA & DUMB HATING A$$ BLACKS THAT CAN’T SEEM TO SEE ANOTHER PLOT GROWING AGAINST ANOTHER BLACK ARTISTS (see dead Michael Jackson (RIP) & Whitney Houston (RIP) for more detailed information on how the racist american media breaks and destroys black artists and how black american’s laugh and rejoice until the artists actually dies then they fake sympathy for them. They love them after they are dead. How very sad)!

    TTT what is that a Rih-HOE CD? Surely you are not trying to compare CB sells to the person who has had a damn near 4 YEAR PITY PARTY about 1 teen fight her dumbass instigated by striking Chris first? There are only two things in life we can be sure of: 1) if Rih-GOAT is promoting a CD she will start whining about Chris Brown and 2) if Chris Brown drops a CD RihTRAMP will be spreading her legs….oops I mean her lips to whine about a 4 year old fight she had with Chris brown. You can take that to the bank and cash it in!

    Rihanna should sell 1 million 1 week each time her generic noise pollutes the airwaves. Everyone supports the so called victim right? I just don’t understand why she has to work so hard? She works hard to fine a new hair color that will shock the crowd. She works hard to whine and cry about Chris Brown while trying to juggle d*** after d*** in her mouth – Aston Kutcher, J. cole, Meek Mill, Jayz, Drake, Matt Kemp , the milkman, the postman, etc.

    Wait is 197k suppose to be a victor for “Pop ICON, & Queen of Pop” Rihanna? LMAO at that one!

Did they drone one about Eminem beat wife Kim or Sean Penn beating Madonna or Charlie Sheen beat wives, gfs and hookers for the past 18 plus years or Ozzy Osbourne beating wife Sharon, or Glen Campbel beating wife Tanya Tuker or Josh Brolin beating wife Diane Lane or Tommy Lee beating Pam Anderson or Mickey Rourke beating wife Carrie Otis? Of course not for obvious reasons. Perhaps they shouldn’t be so MEDIOCRE either?

    how about instead of filling all of these artist with delusion lets bring them to reality and show them that these repeatitive dance albums aren’t working, obviously the sales speak for themselves though. i will say just to give my girl some shine, she did what all those artist did but sold more, im just saying.

    1) Regardless, if Chris Brown didn’t want the club incident to be an issue, he shouldn’t have made it an issue by recording diss tracks and going on Twitter rants, with photos included. If he kept his mouth shut, the incident wouldn’t have received half as much coverage.

    2) Everyone’s album leaks at least a week before its proper release, if not earlier. That’s just the way it goes now. Beyonce’s leaked almost a month before. Dropping an album as soon as it leaks shows a lack of authority and consistency on behalf of the artist and the label.

    3) Rihanna had forgiven Chris Brown, and even recorded songs with him. Then what did Chris do? He recorded a song dissing her and calling her loose. I can’t blame Rihanna for trying to retaliate in her Harper’s Bazaar interview… because Chris did the same thing, with a lot less tact.

    4) The standard edition of Fame was actually on sale for $7.99 at many retailers, including Target and Amazon. It was on sale at Wal-Mart for $9.99, also.

    Everything you mentioned is a lame excuse, or Chris Brown’s fault. Just accept the fact that the album underperformed!

If Chris brown wants to talk about the fact thayt he was attacked in a nightclub wihtour warning or cause by a person he thought his was cordial with THEN WTF IS THE PROBLEM? Espcially when the media has tried to twist the incident into something somehow caused by you!

    2) The artists aren’t leaking the sh* they worked hard to produce so stop trying to throw it off on them! I do however blame the recod companies for allowing this mess to happen so often! And NO EVERYONE’S CD DOES NOT LEAK! Neither Usher’s nor Justin bieber’s CD’s leaked!

    3) that’s a DAMN LIE! He said the song was not about her. He didn’t even write the lyrics to that song he wrote th lyrics to the other free rap song (Mercy). So unless Rihanna slept with that guy too, I just don’t see how it could be about her? Rihanna came ot CB with a motive! She asked him to be on her song for controversy and NOTHING MORE! Rihanna’s a snake who is only out for self!

    4) Fortune fool, I don’t care what FAME sold for!

    The CD is #1 in 3 countries he has only be to one the USA! In 5 other countries Fortune is his highest charting CD to date. and Fortune is #1 in 22 countries on the R&B Chart so WTF are you talking about? American is not the only country in the world, believe it or not!

    @MOB re: July 10, 2012 at 9:12 pm –

    ..LISTEN TO ME!

    ..CAREFULLY READ WHAT I WRITE!

    ..HEAR WHAT I NOW HAVE TO SAY!

    I’m the one who took that distorted, misunderstood, rubbish “Cell Phone Records Warrant/police record” to an actual lawyer, and then made him explain it ALL to me. It was ONLY THEN that I realized what racist Harvey Levin was trying to do; it was THEN that I organized the very first “Team-Chris” and took to these blogs to fight the good fight!

    I’m the one who drove down to ‘Best Buy’/’Target’ and bought 20-copies of ‘F.A.M.E’ (f*** ALL MY ENEMIES). I”m the one who spent HUNDRED$ on singles and ‘Takers’ tickets..

    re: These first-week “disappointing” numbers..

    Team-Breezy needs a new enemy – we, the Lions, need to be fed. You see, when Chris did ‘Cake’ with Rihanna, he took away that ‘leg bone’ we were comfortably chewing on..

    What this “bottle-throwing Wheel-Chair Jimmy/Meek Mill” incident now offers Chris is ‘fresh meat’ from/for which to feed us “Team-Breezy Lions”!! That aforementioned ‘leg bone’ was nevertheless getting old, and has long-since been gnawed into “road kill”.

    If there’s ONE THING that these “disappointing” first-week’s numbers should tell Chris, and his staff/label, is that we “blog-lions” need to be fed. Don’t you see, “good” music, nor not, “WE” were the only missing components from ‘Fortune’ (you’d be disappointed to hear how many copies of ‘Fortune’ I purchased).

    I now say this as a long-standing, fearless Team-Breezy Soldier’, and I want you to quote me:

    “I want Chris to testify against Drake/Meek Mill. I want to then for ‘Wheelchair Jimmy’ to be exposed as the weak, envious, gimmick actor that his truly is!” If Chris can do this one, simple thing, then he can regain the love and loyalty of the “Team-Breezy Lions”!!

    This, “Wheelchair Jimmy bottle-throwing” incident is a blessing…in disguise! I just hope Chris realizes what he’s now been handed, and LISTENS TO HIS LOYAL SUPPORTERS, AND DO AS WE(also Hip Hop/Rap) NOW DEMAND:

    PUT ‘WHEELCHAIR JIMMY/MEEK MILL’ BEHIND BARS, IT’LL EXPOSE THEM FOR THE GIMMICK, NO-TALENT FRAUDS THAT THEY BOTH ARE!

    I think this album didn’t do well because of all the drama CB was involved with starting with like 3 to 4 twitter fights with other artist, his love triangle dividing his fans and alienating Drake and Nicki fans from the drama. Let be honest CB has no big artist collaborations on his album. Even Usher and Justin Bieber have big names collaborations on their album. CB put new artist on his album to give them exposure, but in the end it didn’t help him at all. With the decline in R & B music every artist are working together. If you listen to CB interview with MTV when he talks about the music industry is broke and he has to fund his own music videos. He had so many big name artists on Fame and that album didn’t go platinum, I guess he couldn’t afford it this time around, to pay for those collaborations. It is useless to compare Rihanna and other Artist to CB, he gets so much negative press from the media and himself. He could avoid some of the drama if he never responds. I really don’t like his new label RCA, because I could be wrong, but they are using CB because he is few of the artist they have that actually sold last year. If you notice Miramda Lambert is part of RCA, I believe some of the beefs and twitter rants were planned to help other artist get some PR and she did after the CB twitter fight. I think most of CB twitter fights are done on purpose to get him and other people some media attention. CB over did it this year with all the twitter fights and outside drama, it just turned some fans off. It worked for him last year, because it was like the media was picking on him, but clearly this year CB could’ve avoided some of the twitter fights. I think CB gets no media coverage over the past three years, when he does positive charity events or outside events, that his team felt that he has to act like a fool to get some media coverage. He doesn’t do interviews because of the questions they will ask him and the interviews about DV will overshadows what he was there to promote his album. So they relied on social media and CB created drama to get some PR. I hope CB take some time off and re evaluate himself and his career.

    I also think CB initial plan was to reunite with Rihanna this year as friends. It started with the remixes after the Grammys. I believe they were going to take the stage at the Grammys, but after the sudden death of Whitney houston, the Grammys dedicated their show to Whitney. I think all the stories over the past 6 months about CB and Rihanna, was to test the waters mainly with Rihanna fans and the media, but it didn’t work. Rihanna has did interviews, collaborations, hung out at the same club and events with CB and it still didn’t change the perceptions of how people feel about CB. It appears that Rihanna would never be seen with him, because of the media backlash and risking her career. I also think CB and Rihanna played a whole lot of games with their fans and the media, with this love triangle and it end up hurting CB more than Rihanna. CB looks like a bad boyfriend to Karrueche and the other half of his fans think he did Rihanna wrong, with that diss and she begging him on twitter . But I honestly believe that Rihanna is the one who is afraid to be seen with him, he gets so much hate, I know he is used to it, so I doubt it was him that was afraid to be photographs in the club with him. I think Karrueche and CB has some type of arrangements to help his imagine, that is why she really doesn’t care about all the media coverage and rumors about CB and Rihanna. His PR people had it all wrong, because Karrueche wasn’t going to help his image, because she isn’t a celebrity. The general public feels as though some women will accept anything for fame, but if he dated another a celebrity, that would’ve helped him. Because another celebrity has their own money and fame. I personally think CB needs to leave the women alone for now and the clubbing and drinking and rethink his life and career direction.

    You mention Adele, name another R & B artist over the past two years who went platinum, other than Beyonce, Rihanna, and Usher last album. They were the only two. CB, Mary J Blige and R Kelly are the only R & B acts that sold over 500,000. I wish people would not compare white artist against black artist, which we all they will sell more.
    CB career is ruin, he needs a break from the drama and negative publicity. He should take the rest of the year off. Last week he painted mural for DV center it got no coverage, but the judge wants to see more proof of his community service and it is getting a whole lot of coverage. Justin bieber can go to the gas station and get plenty of positive coverage. CB needs a break from the media, and maybe focus on writing songs for other artist and working on his toy line and art.

    Chris Brown will be fine, he is very talented man. I will always be a CB fan,never jump ship when things are not looking good for my fav. CB down fall will always be a woman, he needs to focus on CB and not a relationship at this time. He did great with Fame and I know it cost him last year with all those producers,promos and videos and he funded himself. I think he has too many people on his staff at this point of his career. He needs to downsize and save on cost. He always have a whole of lot people traveling with him, his family, friends and team. They are killing his pockets. He seems afraid to be by himself always having a large group around him. there are other guys his age that doesn’t have 10 women and guys with them at all time. Look at Trey Sonz and Drake, they are his age and you don’t see them with a huge posse. CB fortune is a good album, I have Don’t judge me on repeat, loved that song, Its the best song on his album.

    It’s not bad.

    Some people haven’t really paid attention to the charts lately I guess. If you did, you’d know that most mainstream albums this year sold half as much as the respective artist’s previous album. Usher’s last album sold 400k. How much did his new album sell? It hasn’t even sold 400k in total after a month! Nicki’s debut sold 400k first week and her new one sold 250k! The same applies to Chris.

    Anyway, the album is solid except for some unecessary fillers, but it’s a good album. Much weaker than ‘F.A.M.E’, but much better than most urban pop albums released this year. The only people who criticize it are the ones who wanted a full-on electropop album.

    Chris is a major star, but his fanbase isn’t that big to the point where he can’t do interviews and act up. His banter and antics are part of the reason his sales are the way they are. This album was rushed. It should have just been a rerelease of “Fame”. Another thing that hurt his sales is the fact that he released way too much free music. It’s called oversaturation. Twitter followers do not equal sales. Stop blaming the climate for low album sales. Good music sales if the public is receptive to it.

    Sayit as it is, Sam, it underperformed despite those hit singles. At least the first week. All’s not lost, the sales could eventually pick up. I listened to the album, it’s better than I expected it tobe, more mature than the previous one.

    Pop royalty you need to stfu with “black ppl are racist as whites.” ummm no. I’m white and I’ll tell you that is not true. Pick up a damn history book for once and I’m talking recent history. White ppl created the who concept of race in order to capitalize and steal wealth and justify cheap labor and oppression. No white person should ever be calling a black person racist you dumbf*ck.

    And all you ppl blaming black people for “not buying albums, etc.” fall to realize that whites make up 65% of the country so of course they’re going to make a bigger percentage of albums sold. Duh..

    That is the dumbest comment ever and there’s a lot of dumb ones out there.

    A racist is a racist. Period. The color of the racist has nothing to do with it.

    The fact you think that black people should be exempt from being called racist, even if they are racist, is racist in itself.

    You’ve just switched the negative (special) treatment to positive (special) treatment. It’s backed by the same reason too, because they’re black.

    If someone is NOT a racist, then they don’t deserve to be called racist. Color of the person’s skin is irrelevant.

    The album is actually a pretty good album. I love Don’t Judge Me. I think that is the best song on the album and I have yet to hear it on the radio. I think people purchase music they enjoy listening to, and could care less about the nonsense on twitter. Most of the people I spoke to didn’t know the album dropped. I think this album still has a long way to go and I wouldn’t count it out just yet.

    @MOB re: July 10, 2012 at 9:12 pm –

    ..LISTEN TO ME!

    ..CAREFULLY READ WHAT I WRITE!

    ..HEAR WHAT I NOW HAVE TO SAY!

    I’m the one who took that distorted, misunderstood, misquoted, rubbish “Cell Phone Records Warrant/police record” to an actual lawyer, and then made him explain it ALL to me. It was ONLY THEN that I realized what racist Harvey Levin was trying to do; it was THEN that I organized the very first “Team-Chris” and took to these blogs to fight the good fight!

    I’m the one who drove down to ‘Best Buy’/’Target’ and bought 20-copies of ‘Graffiti’/’F.A.M.E’ (f*** ALL MY ENEMIES). I”m the one who spent HUNDRED$ on singles and ‘Takers’ tickets..

    re: These first-week “disappointing” numbers..

    Team-Breezy needs a new enemy – we, the Lions, need to be fed. You see, when Chris did ‘Cake’ with Rihanna, he took away that ‘leg bone’ we were comfortably chewing on..

    What this “bottle-throwing Wheel-Chair Jimmy/Meek Mill” incident now offers Chris is ‘fresh meat’ from/for which to feed us “Team-Breezy Lions”!! That aforementioned ‘leg bone’ was nevertheless getting old, and has long-since been gnawed into “road kill”.

    If there’s ONE THING that these “disappointing” first-week’s numbers should tell Chris, and his staff/label, is that we “blog-lions” need to be fed. Don’t you see, “good” music, or not, “WE” were the only missing components from ‘Fortune’ (you’d be disappointed to hear how many copies of ‘Fortune’ I purchased).

    I now say this as a long-standing, fearless Team-Breezy Soldier’, and I want you to quote me:

    “I want Chris to testify against Drake/Meek Mill. I then want ‘Wheelchair Jimmy’ to be exposed as the weak, envious, ‘gimmick actor’ that his truly is!” If Chris can do this one, simple thing, then he can quickly regain the love and loyalty of the “Team-Breezy Lions”!!

    This, “Wheelchair Jimmy bottle-throwing” incident is a blessing…in disguise! I just hope Chris realizes what he’s now been handed, and LISTENS TO HIS MOST LOYAL OF SUPPORTERS, AND DO AS WE(also Hip Hop/Rap) NOW DEMAND:

    PUT ‘WHEELCHAIR JIMMY/MEEK MILL’ BEHIND BARS, IT’LL EXPOSE THEM FOR THE ENVIOUS, GIMMICK, NO-TALENT FRAUDS THAT THEY BOTH ARE!

    And “I”, “ME” who has been on THIS team since day-1, who spent HUNDRED$ on ‘Graffiti’, ‘FAME’ and ‘Takers’ now demands that Chris put ‘Canadian-Bacon Jew Wheelchair Jimmy’, and Meek Mill behind bars.

    “Drake” is an actor who’s real name is ‘Wheelchair Jimmy’ who is now playing the role of a lifetime: “Rapper”.

    If Chris just confirms what EVERYONE has already said: ‘Wheelchair Jimmy’ and Meek Mill threw those bottles that sliced-up those women, then all will be well: I’ll go on the blogs and fight the good fight, and Team-Breezy/Breezy will yet-again prosper.

    New York, NY – July 11, 2012] Multi-award winning and multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/producer CHRIS BROWN achieves international chart topping success as his fifth studio album FORTUNE debuts this week at No.1 on the US, UK and Netherlands Top Albums charts.

    Released July 3rd on RCA Records, FORTUNE claims the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums and R&B Albums charts, according to Nielson SoundScan. The No. 1 Top Albums chart debut in the Netherlands and UK marks his first ever in those countries. FORTUNE also ushers in Brown’s career best Top Albums chart debuts in Ireland and France at No. 4, Japan at No. 5, Canada at No. 6, Switzerland at No. 10 and Germany at No. 13.

    In addition to claiming the No. 1 album on iTunes’ US Albums chart, Brown’s iTunes dominance includes first ever No. 1 albums in 4 countries: UK, Australia, Japan and New Zealand; No. 1 R&B/Soul albums in 22 countries: US, UK, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Canada, Austria, Belgium, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, New Zealand, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia.

    Brown’s current global supremacy is a testament to his natural-born singing and dancing talents, first showcased when he burst on the scene in 2005 as a 16-year-old with “Run It!” from his self-titled debut album. The Virginia native followed with the successful multi-platinum releases of Exclusive (2007), Graffiti (2009) and F.A.M.E. (2011), which won Brown his first ever Grammy Award in 2012 for Best R&B Album. With the release of FORTUNE, the singer has racked up worldwide total album sales of over 12 million to date; total worldwide song sales of nearly 50 million. Adding the coveted Grammy Award to his collection, Brown is the recipient of 100 awards, including a recent BET Award for Best Male R&B Artist and Billboard Music Award for Top R&B Artist.

    @Shadyless… Congratz to Chris for his World Wide Success and topping the charts in the US and International.. Some people need special prayer because their lives are feel with hatered. If the people involved are able to forgive No One cares about your opinion… maybe that is why you are mad andhave little respect for others and yourself. Chris will continue to be successful because he is bless with talent no matter how many devils in sheep clothing tries to stop him. @Zania do not allow others to take your joy… these people lived off negative.. if you ever notice. When Chris has a positive blog no one comments but as soon as there is negative the gates of hell opens up. It just proves that certain people are miserable and the only way to be happy is to inflict hate and negativity because they have no one.

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Chris Brown scored his second No. 1 debut with new album Fortune topping the Billboard 200 chart on Wednesday, despite failing to impress critics in early reviews last week.

    Fortune sold 134,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, a considerably lower debut than the singer’s previous album F.A.M.E., which also reached No. 1 with 270,000 copies in its debut week last year.

    Brown’s was the only new album in the top 10 this week.

    A surprise entry from pop star Katy Perry took the No. 2 slot on the album chart. Her Teenage Dream record, released almost two years ago in August 2010, notched 80,000 unit sales last week, fueled by her new movie Katy Perry: Part Of Me and Amazon.com’s offer of the album for 99 cents on July 3.

    The Amazon.com offer, which saw several albums priced at 99 cents for one day only, also pushed Gotye’s Making Mirrors, Fun.’s Some Nights and the Black Keys’ El Camino albums back into the top 10 of the Billboard 200, at No. 6, No. 7 and No. 10 respectively.

    Justin Bieber’s Believe held steady at No. 3, Maroon 5′s Overexposed notched No. 4, and Linkin Park’s Living Things fell from the top spot last week to No. 5.

    The New Paper

    He’s got a new album full of sugary sweet songs. But Chris Brown is still a bad boy with unresolved anger issues, if his latest antics are anything to go by

    Bad boys.

    You just can’t hold ‘em down, can you?

    It has been three years since US R&B star Chris Brown infamously beat up and threatened his then-girlfriend, Barbardian pop singer Rihanna, right before the Grammy Awards.

    But as recent incidents have shown, he doesn’t seem to have wised up.

    In the immediate two years since the incident with Rihanna, Brown, 23, kept his head down and worked on returning to his origins as the young Michael Jackson that everyone touted him to be when he started in 2003.

    His 2011 album F.A.M.E showed a singer who was spreading his wings musically to much critical acclaim, reaping awards all over the place, including his first Grammy for Best R&B album.

    Unfortunately, this year, we’ve seen Brown back in form as the belligerent, immature young star he was when he decided to throw some blows on his famous ex.

    He released his latest album Fortune last week, and despite – or perhaps because of – the bad press, it shot straight to No. 1 on the iTunes chart. It also helped Brown score his first No. 1 on the UK albums chart.

    There was a whiff of what was going to be in store this year when, in January, his manager Tina Davis told Billboard magazine that his team had decided they were not letting him do interviews so he could “concentrate on performing and recording”.

    “He signed up to sing and entertain. Not to talk about his personal life,” she said. He’d certainly already proven to be reliably unreliable when it came to managing his anger in front of others. (See report, below.)

    So while he’s kept the official press to a minimum – talking mostly about the new album and his recent foray into the art world – he’s certainly kept tabloid ink flowing with his antics while he’s off the clock.

    Just a few weeks before the release of Fortune, Brown’s temper reared its ugly head again, this time in a New York nightclub, and allegedly with Rihanna’s ex, Canadian rapper Drake.

    Not content with rage-tweeting the incident, Brown showed just how not sorry he was by releasing a song dissing Drake in a rap verse on a remix of rapper Chief Keef’s song I Don’t Like.

    He raps, “They throwing bottles / I’m throwing models”, before directly referencing Drake through one of the latter’s song titles, Take Care, and the acronym Yolo (which stands for You Only Live Once), which became a Twitter trending topic, thanks to its appearance on Drake’s single, The Motto.

    Not content with that, Brown has apparently accepted a challenge by website FilmOn.tv to fight Drake in a boxing ring, for the sum of US$10 million (S$12.7 million).

    Perhaps he’s acting out against being continually dragged through the mud in the press, despite public attempts to atone, like when he broke down during a performance of Man In The Mirror for a Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards in 2010.

    Then, he sounded like a changed man, saying during his acceptance speech for the AOL Fandemonium award: “I let y’all down before, but I won’t do it again, I promise.”

    After other stars and viewers reacted negatively to his Grammy comeback earlier this year, Brown angrily tweeted: “…right before the worlds (sic) eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and learn from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys love to hate!!!”

    But when he’s not ranting on Twitter or getting into scuffles, Brown can be charming.

    In the 20-minute documentary Defining Moments: Chris Brown’s Journey, which aired early last week on US channel BET, Brown walked down memory lane, talking fondly about his time as an up-and-coming star.

    TV APPEARANCES

    Looking back on one of his first TV appearances as a 15-year-old on hip-hop video show 106 and Park, he recounted how he was “nervous because Bow (rapper Bow Wow) was there”. At least one person has got his back, though.

    Rihanna’s dad Ronald Fenty told UK magazine Grazia recently that he believed Brown has “matured”. “Everyone is entitled to make a mistake,” he said. “Her fans are hoping it will happen. They see them as a perfect couple.”

    Not that Fenty is the best person to listen to, considering he’s been called out by his own daughter for talking to tabloids about her, even right after the infamous incident with Brown.

    “He never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing… He went straight to the press and got a cheque,” Rihanna, 24, told Vogue magazine last April.

    Rihanna herself seems to have put the past behind her. Rumours have been swirling for months about whether the two will get back together soon, considering they collaborated on a track, Birthday Cake, earlier this year.

    Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar for the August issue, she said: “I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”

    Brown has a ton of fans behind him too.

    During his Grammy performance this year, some smitten supporters tweeted that they would let Brown beat them up any day.

    Alarming, but at least he’s still got some love.

    Fight club

    Just three weeks ago, Brown got into one of his most public altercations yet since the Rihanna incident – ironically with her ex, Drake.

    It’s emerged that Drake was the one who apparently started the fight by returning a bottle of champagne sent by Brown, supposedly with a note saying he was still intimate with Rihanna.

    A heated exchange escalated into a full-on fight, and bottles and punches were thrown.

    But it’s Brown’s immediate behaviour after the fight that has been more damning. .

    While Drake shied away from confirming whether he had been part of the altercation at all, Brown was quick to post a picture of a battle scar on his Instagram account, before posting derogatory remarks about Drake and his crew on Twitter.

    Sore winner

    Not content with bagging a Grammy this year – after a two-year disappearance from the awards ceremony post-Rihanna rough-up – the sensitive Brown took to Twitter to rage against the folks who disagreed with his return to the show.

    US country singer Miranda Lambert had tweeted: “Not cool that we act like that didn’t happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead (sic – Lambert’s single about a woman getting her revenge against an abusive ex) and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys.”

    Showing a worrying lack of maturity, he tweeted back: “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now!”

    Nice one, Brown.

    Backstage rage

    Last year, it was reported that Brown “went ballistic” backstage after being asked about the Rihanna incident on Good Morning America.

    A source from the show’s network ABC told E! News that he started swearing and throwing furniture around, adding: “He smashed a chair into a window and that glass is so thick, people heard shattering and security was called.”

    Rihanna roughed up

    Who would beat up one of the world’s biggest pop stars…the night before music’s biggest night?

    Brown would, and did.

    He and Rihanna apparently started fighting in his car after leaving a pre-Grammy party thrown by Clive Davis the night before the actual awards show.

    In the midst of the fight, Brown stopped his Lamborghini at the side of a road, which is when Rihanna decided to toss his car keys out the window, sending Brown into a rage.

    He then started punching her and at one point, put his hands around her throat and threatened her life.

    For that, he was sentenced to serve five years’ probation and to spend 1,400 hours of physical labour, in addition to attending domestic violence counselling sessions.

    This article was first published in The New Paper.

    A judge ordered an audit of Chris Brown’s community service progress Tuesday after a prosecutor handling his felony assault case cited a possible discrepancy in the amount of work he has performed.

    Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray requested the audit because she says the records are not clear on how many hours Brown performed and where the work has been done. Brown had been allowed to perform six months’ worth of community labour in his home state of Virginia, but a judge said probation officials in Los Angeles should review detailed records to ascertain how much work he has actually done
