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…
The album, which has spawned chart smashes ‘Deuces’ and ‘Yeah 3x’, has officially shipped 500,000 copies according to the singer’s label, Jive.
A great feat given Brown’s prior circumstance (as well as the industry’s current sales climate). Yet, a feat made all the more impressive by the LP almost doubling its initial 270,000 opening week figures in such short space of time.
As at writing, ‘F.A.M.E’ sits at #6 on the Bilboard 200, while its latest single ‘She Ain’t You’ ascends on Urban radio.
Platinum, at this point, certainly looks more a case of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’. Go Chris!
