Chris Brown Scores UK #1 With ‘Freaky Friday’

Published: Friday 6th Apr 2018 by Sam

Chris Brown has been crowned champion of the UK charts this week, for he’s rocketed to the top of the tally with latest effort ‘Freaky Friday.’

Full story below…

The Lil Dicky jam, which C. Breezy guests on, blasts from #5 to #1, displacing mid-week leader ‘This Is Me’ from the cast of ‘The Greatest Showman.’ 

‘Friday’ pushed previous #1 ‘These Days’ by Rudimental down to #2. It managed to do so with 4.6 million British streams this week.

The song’s ascend was fairly rapid; it premiered at #16 three weeks ago and has blasted its way up the chart quickly thanks largely to its viral music video – which spoofed the 2003 movie of the same name. Said visual

For Brown, the single serves as his second to reach the apex of the count – following 2012’s ‘Turn Up The Music.’ It marks Lil Dicky’s first release to earn the honor.

The news comes as the track sped its way into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 – Brown’s first offering to do so in four years.



Congrats to Chris (and Lil Dicky).

We still would prefer a more focussed released strategy from him. (Note that, despite the mass of music+videos he’s put out, he’s proven most successful on someone else’s song).

Nonetheless, a win is a win.

    Finally good news for Chris. If he just focused on his TALENT and less drama, he could be the Next Michael Jackson. The throne is his for the taking…Usher is too Inconsistent.

      The next Michael Jackson is a massive reach, but congratulations to Lil’ D and Chris Brown.

      You can have a seat. Usher is still the one and ONLY heir to MJ’s throne, coined by King MJ himself.
      And there’s still nobody around to threaten or take his spot.
