Thanks to a little help from former nemesis Drake, R&B beau Chris Brown‘s guided his latest single, ‘No Guidance,’ to the highest chart success he’s known in quite some time.
The Vinylz-produced bop – which rests at #6 on the most refreshed edition of the Hot 100 (as we reported here) – is Brown’s first top 10 hit as a leading act since 2013’s ‘Loyal’ and also comes as the highest rung he’s reached on the tally (as a leader) since 2011’s ‘Look At Me Now’ peaked at #6. The handsome mix of streaming and digital downloads that have pushed ‘Guidance’ to its present chart success have also led to victory on the RIAA side of stat tracking as it’s been revealed the tune is already Platinum – just two months after its release.
Last week the Recording Industry Association of America took to its official Web site to reveal Brown’s ‘Guidance’ became his latest track to cross the organization’s threshold for Platinum. This means its sold the equivalent of over 1 million units to date.
The news was accompanied by reports its parent album, the chart-topping ‘Indigo,’ had shifted over 500,000 units SPS to date. As such, it qualified for Gold certification.
Now, just days away from the kick off of his highly anticipated Stateside ‘Indigoat’ tour (click here for dates), the nationwide promotion will undoubtedly help kick both ‘Guidance’ and its parent project to the next level of certifications.
