‘No Guidance’: Chris Brown Earns First Hot 100 Top 5 Hit In Over 10 Years

Published: Wednesday 2nd Oct 2019 by Rashad

Love him or loathe him, Chris Brown continues to prove himself the preeminent male R&B artist of the 2010s – a feat underscored by the enduring success of his latest Hot 100 hit, ‘No Guidance.’

A collaboration with former nemesis Drake, the Vinylz-produced tune – which debuted at #9 upon its June 2019 premiere on the chart –  marked a personal milestone for Brown as it became his first top 10 hit (as a leader) since 2013’s ‘Loyal.’  

Now, it’s pressing its way toward #1 as the tally’s refreshed list shows ‘Guidance’ has danced its way into the top 5.

Details inside:

Found aboard the Grammy winner’s latest album, ‘Indigo,’ the bop rose on this week’s chart thanks to a handsome mix of streaming (32.8 million), radio impressions (62 million), and digital sales (6,000).

Billboard reports:

“Chris Brown’s “No Guidance,” featuring Drake, reaches the Hot 100’s top five, rising 7-5 and besting its prior No. 6 high; it debuted at No. 9 on the June 22-dated chart and has spent all but two of its 16 weeks on the list in the top 10.

Brown earns his first top five Hot 100 hit in over 11 years, since “Forever” ranked at No. 4 on Sept. 20, 2008, after reaching No. 2. His four other top five entries: “No Air,” with Jordin Sparks (No. 3, 2008); “With You” (No. 2, 2008); “Kiss Kiss,” featuring T-Pain (No. 1 for three weeks, 2007); and “Run It!” (No. 1, five weeks, 2005).”

        I’ll never understand why you support a woman abuser.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 3, 2019

        Ill never understand why u care who I support. U really need to get a life.

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        Shayla…little effort? Ha! I’d love to see you do what he does and live a day in his shoes. But instead, while he’s living his BEST life at the FOREFRONT, you sit and play internet thug behind an avatar. Aww poor tink tink.

    • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

      Shayla…Have you done EVERYTHING right your entire life? Give the guy a break, he made a mistake a decade ago. Can he live? He deserves to be forgiven as God forgives us. You probably lie daily. Look in the mirror.

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        He lies daily. About his drug use, the quality of his music, that he cares about the music, that he cares about his audience. All he cares about is the coins for the drugs, from putting in as little an effort as possible. So sit down.

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        Recycling the same old formula over 40 song albums with the same old sexual lyrics isn’t little effort? Girl, that’s his job. He used to put in effort but he realised that you, his fans, are easily fooled, easily pleased and will buy whatever sh|t he puts out. Stay blessed.

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        Again, internet thug who has not proven to have a pinky worth of talent that he does. Stay mad, boo.

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        Point proven.

        He will never give you better when you’re satisfied with mediocrity.

        If you knew anything about talent, you’d already know that. Stay happy being played by an addict who doesn’t care about you as his fans or what he gives you for your coins ?

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        And stay in the background of obscurity judging others who have the balls to step into the light.

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        That’s what comes with a celebrity and in the spotlight as opposed to “staying in the background of obscurity.”

        With the praise from being great, also comes the judgement when you’re not.

        Chris has talent, lots of it. He just doesn’t use it anymore. The same way you’re clearly not using your head.

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        And you’ve clearly been living under a rock. The guy is super talented. I mean really, let’s be honest. He is a great entertainer. In my opinion the Back to Love video was one of the best of the year. Tell me who is better currently? Ill wait. But we can agree to disagree.

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        Where did I say he was not talented? Quote me.

        I said he has lots of talent but is just not using it anymore.

        A music video is not the topic of conversation, we were talking about his current recycled formula of music. After all, music IS what he’s known for…

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        And him EXPERTLY executing all things relating to his music including music videos equates to TALENT. You can’t be this dense. I’m not trying to convince you at all but your points are not valid. Chris has continued to remain current throughout his storied career and that speaks for itself. The naysayers like yourself have not and will not stop his shine.

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        Oh honey, if he was shining so bright, he wouldn’t be begging for people to buy copies of his album AND still stream it to help him get a #1, putting 40+ of the same sounding songs on an album to help with streams/sales and to have one copy of his CD count as TWO sales from being a double album and to be re-releasing the same album with ten new songs to cheat the sales even further as he knows he can’t hit those targets without cheats and trickery. He also wouldn’t throw fits and tantrums over Twitter when sales weren’t to his liking.

        Does the stupid one get it yet?

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        You are clueless if you think that innovation is cheating. The game changes EVERYDAY. You either innovate, fall in line, or get LEFT BEHIND. He’s not the first to come up with new ways to win. Post Malone got his first number one with Rockstar by creating a YouTube loop. Hell Jayz even had a partnership with tmobile that sold thousands of records before his album even dropped.

        But I wouldn’t expect a small-minded internet thug to know about innovation and creativity. That’s why you’ll always remain in the background salty AF about other people’s accomplishments. Aww poor tink tink.

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        Innovation?! Doing the same tired beats and same old subject matter over and over again? The irony of your comment ??? You love to contradict yourself but then you are the stupid one.

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        Contradict? The point you tried to make (and failed miserably)was around “cheating” the system. Keep up loser. That short bus mentality is showing.

      • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

        I stated straight facts that you can’t even deny. What you’re spewing is only a biased opinion of your fave. An OPINION is not facts like I give. Check out of these comments now, boo. Your time with me is now up. Feel grateful for the time you did have with Shayla. You have been schooled. Class dismissed!

      • Holliewuudd October 3, 2019

        Your statements are no more facts than the sky is red. You keep regurgitating YOUR opinion of how YOU feel like he’s making the same music but you have not produced any FACTS to backup your OPINIONS.
        You’re correct, you are dismissed. Take care, Salty.

  2. #TeamTinashe Stan October 2, 2019

    Wow Drake gave this man a hit that he was beefin with.
    Chris needed Drake

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 2, 2019

      The power of brotherly love. AMEN.

    • Shayla Queen October 3, 2019

      Even Drake couldn’t give Tinashe a hit. Sorry to tell you, boo.

  3. Clarkson October 3, 2019

    Yall are pretending motivation never happened. Lol

    Number 61. After Rihanna gave this chic a shout out, not once but twice, yes u heard me right, TWICE.

    Who has noticed normani is not everywhere anymore. Shes hiding. Lol
    Now that hurricane cabello has come to town, normani has gone into hiding.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? October 3, 2019

      U are on old sissy queen with no life. AMEN

      • Fancy BISH October 3, 2019

        lol ?

      • D October 3, 2019

        DEAD ?

    • King z October 3, 2019

      Clarkson seriously bro (or sis), it’s not cute or funny that u have no life. Leave this commentary to Normani or camila posts. U don’t have to say this constantly!!

    • Lana Bey Fan October 3, 2019

      I don’t know why people always think if you’re not in the spotlight 24/7 365 that means you’re irrelevant. She had a hit single and video that is still getting views, in a month or so she’ll release another one which will trend then she’ll release an album. Literally every artist has a “break” period from the spotlight while they perform and make money. Even Beyoncé has “breaks” from spotlight and performing. Leave Normani alone .

      • Clarkson October 3, 2019

        Your lead single peaked at number 33 after all the hype and shout out from 100 different celebrities on Instagram and Twitter, after performing it at the vma’s, normani shouldn’t be taking breaks.

        Motivation has 55 million views on YouTube
        Camila shameless (a flop) has 52 million views, no promo , no award show performance, no shout outs from 100 different celebrities on Instagram and Twitter

        Let’s not forget normani released motivation first before Camila realised shameless

        Normani is in panic mode. She’s gonna drop a new song feat a rapper, watch and see.

      • Tyty October 3, 2019

        Why are you explaining yourself to this lunatic. It literally has no life outside of this blog and Normani. ??

  4. BeyIsGrown October 3, 2019

    I do not care much about Chris’ music but damn this guy is hell

  5. Q**** October 3, 2019

    Two Beige nigus giving girls around the world waterfalls in the drawls

  6. Tino October 3, 2019

    LMAO and people swear this dude is on Michael Jackson and Usher level SMDH. The classic real music, #1 hits, and being able to actually sing live just doesn’t COMPARE.

  7. Queen?Bee❤️ October 3, 2019

    Drakes power

  8. Nicky October 3, 2019

    Thanks to Drake!!!

    Camicky = Chris Brown

    Needs feature

  9. Swirly October 3, 2019

    Drake really has the golden touch.

  10. only facts October 3, 2019

    This is only because of Drake. Hopefully Chris realizes that…

    I haven’t liked Chris’ music since F.A.M.E. – that was honestly his best work. His new material is watered down cow manure
