Chart Rewind [Hot 100]: Chris Brown Bagged His Second and Last #1 Hit [To Date] This Week in 2007

Published: Friday 8th Nov 2019 by Rashad

Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’  allow us the chance to re-spin yesterday’s gems and jams from one artist, our youngest feature, Chart Rewind, serves as a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay in that it accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.


He may have burst onto the scene in 2005 with his R&B chart-topping, self-titled debut album (which wielded four top 10 hits including the #1 single ‘Run It’), but just two years later fans had every reason to believe Chris Brown was beelining toward a sophomore slump thanks to his second album’s lead single, ‘Wall to Wall.’

Despite its high octane, ‘Thriller’-inspired music video, response to the tune was less than thrilling (to say the least) as it peaked at #79 – a career low at the time.  As proof mounted the teen sensation was set to be “one and done” on the album front, Brown and team enlisted the help of serial hitmaker T-Pain for assistance.  Serving double duty as guest star and producer on the track christened ‘Kiss Kiss,’ T’s contribution would only further his untainted track record at the time as the song was immediately embraced by American radio.

Debuting in the Hot 100’s lower half in mid-September of that year, not even two months later – thanks to a little help from an Erik White-directed music video –  the tune vaulted to #1 on the tally (where it was found this week 12 years ago).  Going on to be certified quadruple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, ‘Kiss’ was also shown love from the Recording Academy when it received a nod in the ‘Best Rap/Sung Collaboration’ category at the next year’s ceremony (losing to Rihanna & JAY-Z‘s ‘Umbrella’).

Although ‘Kiss’ serves as the singer’s last run atop the Hot 100 (to date), we salute the party-starter for remaining an important member of his prized discography.  Curious to see who joined him in the top 25 this week in 2007?

    Chris brown has only 2 number 1’s and both have features

    Run it feat juelz Santana
    Kiss kiss feat t-pain

    So are u guys gonna give him the same hatred u give my queen Camila, the most streamed female artist on spotify?

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 8, 2019

      He has over 20 Number 1 R&B songs and that is his genre of music! Camilla is Pop and aint nobody thinking og her on r&b / hip-hop posts bit u old man psycho. U are old enough to be Camilla’s father. Act like an adult man for once instead of a little gay queen who plays with barbie dolls and listens to pop female singers 24/7. Time for u to grow up.

      • Clarkson November 8, 2019

        I thought u said I was a white granny
        Then u said I was racist
        Then u said I was bi racial
        Now I’m old

        You’re a clown. I dont pay u any attention. U are not on my level of intellect. I have skooled u several times. I decided to ignore u cause ur a deranged psycho
        Go and make several troll account of me.
        I will never respond to the likes of u ever.

        Just so u know Camila has 4 number 1 hits on the pop charts.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 8, 2019

        LIES. I never said any of that sh1t to u and u know it! I know u are an older black gay man with self-hate issues and toxic tendencies. I told u several times u are old enough to be Camilla’s father and u never denied it so it is true. Furthermore, I told u to limit your commenting to the bottom sexction of the comments since the too section is reserved for too divas like me and CLEARLY u are a sissy bottom that only knows sissy bottom talk. Yuck 🤢 🤮 Whatever ‘intellect’ u think u have is overshadowed by your constant obsession with Camilla and Normandi (2 women that are young enough to be your daughters)! That is very disturbing. What is even worse, is you constantly bringing them up on posts they have nothing to do with. You sound psycho crazy and u are a weirdo old man (u probably are a pedo too).

        Now back to the topic at hand, Chris Brown, the current King of R&B. Daddy Chris is still making hits and still relevant after nearly 20 years in the industry. I love all his music. It is nice to go on an R&B post and appreciate R&B genius for once despite the crazies like Clarkson trying to steer the conversation into an immature little girl level.

      Lol! Yeah, BUT Breezy has about 15 top 10 hits on the hot 100s and several of them ARE NOT features. Lol. And thats not even including the top 15 or 20s…. which are considered hits. And not to mention all the songs charted by him didn’t fall off in a matter of days like others… Those songs all exemplified longevity. Look it up. Camilla isn’t EVEN in the same bracket range. I f**** with you Clarkson but please get real sir lol! She’s a novice in this league. You know that. 😏

      • Clarkson November 8, 2019

        Camila is starting out the same way Chris was starting out back then.
        But everybody keeps giving her shìt cause she has 2 number 1’s and they both have features. Every tho shes the lead artiste on both songs and wrote both songs.
        Its ridiculous. Camila has 4 number 1’s on the pop chart. she’s the most streamed female artist with only 1 album. That’s a sign of longevity
        Beyonce first 3 number 1’s all had features

        Lil Wayne has only 3 number 1’s and all 3 number 1’s have features

        Lollipop feat static major
        down, Jay Sean feat lil Wayne
        I’m the one, DJ Khalid feat lil wayne, justin bieber.

        I dont see anybody giving lil Wayne crap for not having a solo number one.

        The way the haters talk like having a number 1 with a feature is easy. Dumb àsses

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 November 8, 2019

        Get lost Clarkson sissy bottom. Go take your sissy bottom talk about that little white girl Camilla to the mental clinic and get help u disturbed old man.

      Chris can’t sing live, definitely can’t dance and sing live. He makes the same songs about s**, drugs and partying over and over. In his songs he calls women h*** and b****** like he’s a rapper. Dude got 2 Hot 100 hits and haven’t even sold a combined 20 million in actual album sales after 15 years lol but black people swear he’s on Michael Jackson level SMDH. He isn’t even close to Usher level when it comes to performance, vocal ability, number one songs and actual album sales.

    Chris Brown’s numbers and stats are truly underwhelming compared to his larger contemporaries. He also hasn’t had a platinum album that SOLD 1 million units since 2007. When it comes to him it’s always quantity over quality. His career is smoke and mirrors.

    • You Tried November 8, 2019

      Well those smoke and mirrors have worked thus far

    • Tino November 9, 2019

    Kanye West in the top 10 twelve years later. Love or hate him, but not many can say that.

    • Tino November 9, 2019

      That’s what selling your soul can do for your career.

  4. Lmfao_Hoe November 8, 2019

    Britney’s Gimme More is still on the dance playlist along with gym 💯🔥

  5. High Price November 8, 2019

    Say what you want but BREEZY got HITS! And depending on how long the HIT charts on the billboard (within the top 15 I’d say) it can be as good as having a number 1 single. This is the HOT 100 we’re talking about. You’re in population. So speak lightly because dude got hits for years. And that’s FACTS.

  6. I love big black cox November 8, 2019

    Chris used to be so fine and so yummy. Now he looks like a crackhead

  7. Da’Veed November 10, 2019

    With the Rihanna situation I think that’s what became a problem for him and his career. I thought “ look at me now” went #1.
