For over twenty-five years, I have had the privilege to watch some the greatest living artists create the most powerful cultural movement that America has ever seen. I saw Run-DMC sell out Madison Square Garden, the Beastie Boys get licensed to ill, DMX release three #1 albums in a row, LL Cool J rock the bells, Kanye West artistically push his generation to a new level, Diddy pave the way for a new wave of urban entrepreneurship…and those are to name just a few artists who went through a period of tremendous personal struggle after achieving their “dreams.” I have worked everyday of my adult life to uplift the potential of the artist, who I believe has the greatest potential of uplifting the generation. It is the artist that breathes clarity into a world that is full of clutter. And today, now more than ever, the world is very cluttered.

IT’S A BROWN OUT
Barry Weiss certainly didn’t leave the cupboard bare at Jive/RCA when he split for UMG.
The label group will have the top four debuts on next week’s chart, with Jive/JLG’s Chris Brown album, F.A.M.E., leading the way, boasting a total of in the 250-275k range. That would make it the second-largest of the year after Adele’s 351k. If you didn’t know, the acronym stands for “Forgive All My Enemies.” Nice.
19/J/RMG’s Jennifer Hudson sophomore album, I Remember Me, bows this week with 150-175k in sales, which is about what she dropped in weight.
RCA/RMG’s The Strokes album, Angles, their first in four years, will do in the 85-100k range, good for a #3 debut.
Gospocentric/JLG’s Kirk Franklin rounds out Jive/RCA’s impressive week with a #4 debut for Hello Fear, his first new studio effort in four years, which will debut with between 80-95k.
Adele’s album, down only about 10-15%, will give Sony Music a clean sweep of the Top 5.
Decaydance/FBR/Atlantic’s Panic at the Disco is next up with a target of 55-65k for Vices & Virtues, their third album.
Capitol/EMI R&B singer Bobby V’s fourth album, Fly on the Wall, should do between 30-45k.
Yellowcard’s indie debut on Hopeless, When You’re Through Thiking, Say Yes, their first since 2007’s Paper Walls, is looking at between 25-30k, the same amount as Reprise’s Green Day live CD/DVD, the gloriously titled Awesome as Fuck.
Warner Bros. rapper Gucci Mane’s The Return of Mr. Zone 6, should bow with between 20-25k in first-week sales.
For the fifth week in a row, album sales beat the corresponding week from last year. The market was down 8% vs. last week, up 1% vs. same week last year and now down 6% year to date. Next week, the chart will go up against Justin Bieber‘s My World 2.0, which opened one year ago with 283k.
DJ Juanyto tells MTV News the singer was ‘all about his fans’ at post-’GMA’ party.

On Tuesday night, Chris Brown was in great spirits as he partied alongside fans at his F.A.M.E. record-release party at New York’s Webster Hall.
Earlier in the day, he made headlines when he had a public meltdown backstage after his interview with “Good Morning America,” but by the time the party started, Brown just wanted to redirect the energy to his album.
“It was good. There was nothing but girls in there,” DJ Juanyto, who was at the party, told MTV News. “He came onstage, no Hollywoodness. He took all that energy from everyone and started performing. It was dope. No type of negativity. He was really positive. It was really dope.”
Brown also performed at the gathering, bringing out pals like Bow Wow, Waka Flocka Flame and Lloyd Banks. E! News reports that the star alluded to his earlier drama, saying, “I wasn’t gonna perform tonight, but f— it! A lot of whack sh– happened today.”
Juanyto confirmed that Brown alluded to the media drama, but he said Brown also added, “I’m really here for my fans.”
“After he performed, he went up to the balcony and was partying,” Juanyto said. “He came back downstairs and he brought out Lloyd and got into a reggae dance competition with the audience. He’s really all about the fans. There was no drama whatsoever. When he’s around his fans, he has all that love. He’s really all about interacting with his fans.”
Brown stayed at the party for about two hours and made sure that the focus stayed on his fan appreciation. “He just really was all about his fans,” Juanyto added. “He really made sure he spent all of his time with them, and he thanked them for coming out. He said, ‘I don’t care how you get the album, as long as you have it, I appreciate it.’ ”
