Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Chris Brown’s ‘Indigo’ Certified Platinum, Summer Walker’s ‘Over It’ Now Gold

Published: Saturday 14th Dec 2019 by Rashad

While many R&B releases got thumbs up from critics in 2019, no two efforts waved the flag for the genre quite like Chris Brown‘s ‘Indigo’ and Summer Walker‘s ‘Over It.’

The former, a 37-track affair featuring the likes of Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Trey Songz, and more, was deemed a return to form as it gifted Brown his first appearance in the Hot 100’s top 5 in over a decade courtesy of the wildly popular jam, ‘No Guidance’ (featuring Drake).  Similarly, ‘Over It’ – almost just as star-studded with high profile features from Usher, 6LACK, PartyNextDoor, and more – was the best performing female R&B project since Beyonce‘s ‘Lemonade’ in 2016.

As the popularity of both chart-topping opuses endures months after their releases, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) recently recognized their respective sales performances by awarding them certification plaques.  Walker’s debut album has been certified Gold (denoting sales equivalence of over 500,000 copies in the United States) while Christopher’s was christened Platinum (denoting sales equivalence of over 1,000,000 in the United States).

    As terrible as Chris looks and acts, I have to admit No Guidance is good. Haven’t listened to the album.

    My problem with Chris is he’s like Ciara. I like their music…but I wish it was sung by someone who could actually sing.

    I think facial tattoos are ugly. I feel like whatever you wanted doodled on your face could have been done on a more flattering part of the body like a leg. Chris Brown is talented but I do not like his tattoos or girly arms. I do not know much about this girl who does not shower named Summer though.

    Summer walker had no hype or free promo or cosigner from beyonce and Rihanna and her career has taken off

    unlike some people who received hype from the entire industry but still flopped.

    Bad bìtches of rnb
    Ari Lennox
    Summer walker
    Ella mai
    Jorja smith

    Normani cant compete with these girls.
    If normani does rnb she will flop cause she dont have rnb credibility like these girls I mentioned above.

        This is sad. Fake accounts.

    • Truth Tea December 15, 2019

      You are very sad. Nobody is thinking of Normani but you. Stop cramming her down everyone’s throats. Nobody cares about Normani, Camila, or any other of your weird music choices u choose to troll with. This post is about Chris and Summer so unless u are talking about them or their new duet song get lost troll

    Music is such garbage; who is buying this mess.

  5. Tyty December 15, 2019

    Post Malone success is extremely baffling… I will never understand it.

  6. Paulo December 15, 2019

    Summer Walker’s album is gonna keep doing great cause it’s filled with sleeper hits. On first listen the album is just cute but some of these melodies stick on your mind

    • John L. Anderson V December 15, 2019

      This is accurate af. When I first heard it, all the songs sounded the same but actually hear it more those songs are ear worms

    • No Glory December 15, 2019

      I like her song with Ross

  7. No Glory December 15, 2019

    Even with the media dragging his name through the mud like a f_ucking dog, This Generation’s King Of Music still going platinum. Every album platinum. Every album #1. WIth the exception of that joint album with Tyga.
