The music industry continues to die a slow and painful death this week as 2 of its most untalented acts have accomplished what many determined to be the impossible. Rihanna and Britney Spears’ ‘S&M’ has topped the Billboard Hot 100, giving the former her 10th #1 single and a position next to Janet Jackson in the history books.
Akon has been conquering the club scene for years and it doesn’t look like he will be slowing down anytime soon. The hitmaker has teamed up with Chris Brown and producer Polow Da Don for ‘Take It Down Low’, the latetst release from his ‘Stadium’ album (in stores September 13th).
Listen to the record below:
Just three weeks after Chris Brown‘s comeback effort ‘F.A.M.E’ topped the Billboard 200, it has been announced that the album has been certified Gold.
Full story after the jump…
This has been another triumphant week for Katy Perry. The singer’s ‘E.T (Ft. Kanye West)’ has scored a 3rd consecutive week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, soaring high above all other contenders.
Britney Spears was once major force on the Billboard charts but now it seems that her ability to sell records has diminished along with her skills on the dance floor. Indeed, after only 1 week at #1, her ‘Femme Fatale’ album has already been replaced.
However, the LP was not evicted from the top spot by a new release; it was forced out by Adele’s ’21’ which returns to the summit of tally after 8 weeks on the chart. It seems that lights in Spears’ circus have begun to dim.
Does Chris Brown have another hit single on his hands? Following the massive success of ‘Yeah 3x’ and ‘Look At Me Now (Ft. Busta Rhymes & Lil Wayne)’, the young entertainer has lined up ‘She Ain’t You’ as the next release from his hit album, ‘F.A.M.E’, with the accompanying cover seen above.
What do you think of the cover?
Chris Brown may be riding high on the wings of success from his 1st #1 album, ‘F.A.M.E’, but that doesn’t mean that he has forgotten in his fans. Indeed, the singer/songwriter proves this by continuing his Mechanical Dummy webisode series this week with this new video entitled ‘My Last (Freestyle)’.
Watch the visual for Brown’s latest rap effort below:
Fans are his everything, and Chris Brown appears adamant that they go home satisfied after attending his upcoming ‘F.A.M.E Tour’. The ‘Yeah 3x’ singer shared footage of the tour’s rehearsal with fans on his lifestyle site Mechanical Dummy – and if this is any indication of what to expect, concert goers are in for a treat.
The worldwide trek, which kicks off later this month, set to touch down in North America, Europe, and Australasia.
Peep Chris in action after the jump…
Britney Spears’ ‘Femme Fatale’ has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. However, her fans may want to put their celebrations on hold as the record marks her 2nd her lowest 1st week sales to date, proving that she is definitely not stronger than yesterday.
That Lady GaGa reign finally let up! The Pop phenom’s ‘Born This Way’ has been ousted from the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 by a song from none other than Katy Perry.
‘Yeah 3x’ wasn’t the only song that Chris Brown performed on ‘Dancing With The Stars’. The electrifying entertainer gave viewers quite the light show as he danced up a storm to his #1 hit ‘Forever’ and the latest single from his ‘F.A.M.E’ album, ‘Beauttiful People’.
Look below to see Brown in action:
The Chris Brown promo machine continues to press on. The entertainer hit the stage on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ just moments ago to promote his new album, ‘F.A.M.E’, which is currently perched at the #1 spot on the Billboard 200.
