Chris Brown’s fans have a reason to celebrate today as the singer’s new album, ‘Fortune’, has topped the UK Albums Chart. Shockingly, however, the LP is only Brown’s first #1 entry of his career to date, despite numerous hits in that territory.
‘Fortune’ capped the UK Albums Chart and outsold its nearest competitor, Maroon 5′s ‘Overexposed’, by more than 11K copies. Brown’s previous best-performing album on the UK charts was his 2007 release, ‘Exclusive’, which peaked at #3 on the lineup and it has thus far been certified platinum.
In the US, ‘Fortune’ is also on track to enter the Billboard 200 as Brown’s second #1 album in that region. However, it is projected to sell less than 140K copies; 130K less than the 270K opening figures of his previous release, ‘F.A.M.E.’.
Brown has logged a pair of top 10 singles on the Official UK Singles Chart from ‘Fortune’. ‘Turn Up the Music’ landed at #1 on the ranking whereas ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ reached #2. Watch the video for the latter song below:
