Chris Brown has topped AOL’s Top R&B Songs of 2010 placing ‘No Bullshit’ at #1 and ‘Deuces’ at #5. Here’s what AOL had to say about both tracks.
05 – ’Deuces’ Feat. Tyga & Kevin McCall
Chris Brown took a non-traditional approach to releasing a new album in 2010 by recording a mixtape with rapper Tyga called ‘Fan of a Fan’ and releasing it online. On ‘Deuces,’ which also features Kevin McCall, Brown sings that he’s done trying to make a troubled relationship work and is moving on instead. The track earned a 2011 Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
01- ’No Bullshit’
Chris Brown makes his second appearance on our list with ‘No BS,’ another track from his ‘Fan of a Fan’ mixtape. “Why don’t you come over my place, put a smile on my face,” Brown sings seductively on the slow jam. Brown’s ode to doing it all night long rounds out our Top R&B Songs of 2010.

Billboard Magazine recently compiled a list of what it thinks are the Top 50 best R&B/Hip-Hop artists of the last 25 years and Chris made the list coming in at No. 45. Here’s what they had to say about Chris.
Chris Brown exploded onto R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at 16 years old with the chart-topping “Run It!” in 2005, going on to post 11 more top 10 singles on the list through 2008. After the singles from his 2009 album “Graffiti” failed to find the top 10 (the same year he pled guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna), he returned to the region when his mixtape single “Deuces” hit No. 1 in September of 2010. On R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, the singer has picked up two No. 1 albums with his self-titled debut in 2005 and “Graffiti.” His second set, “Exclusive,” topped out at No. 2 in 2007.
To put Breezy’s position in perspective… Beyonce ranked #15, Michael Jackson ranked #13 whilst the top spot went to R. Kelly.
Guests at the GQ Gentlemen’s Ball, which celebrates outstanding charitable men and their causes, raised their eyebrows as they watched Chris Brown chat up honoree Jimmie Briggs in the Edison Ballroom. The pairing drew stares because former journalist Briggs founded Man Up Campaign, a nonprofit to combat violence against women, and Brown last year pleaded guilty to assault against ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Briggs told us, “I found Chris to be very humble, sincere, honest and clear about expressing an interest in working with Man Up or an organization like ours. Chris is a young man, and he made a mistake. Some people may feel or not feel he hasn’t paid his dues, but he’s on a journey. We have to be supportive. My parting words to him were ‘Keep your head up.’ ” Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher and Jimmy Fallon were also friendly to Brown at the event. Fallon even asked him to return to his late-night talk show, saying, “You can play with the Roots,” referring to his house band.
I’m very pleased with this article. It’s obvious that Chris has learned a lot since the incident which is dawning on a much brighter two-year anniversary than last year’s. Chris Brown is beginning to take on a legendary status continuing to set trends, break records, and evolve into one of the world’s greatest stars!
For more information on Jimmie’s Man Up Campaign check out these links:
COME ON! He has to have broken a record by now. Someone look that isht up! LOL! Nonetheless, Deuces is still the #1 R&B/Hip-Hop song in the country. #shoutout to @CBSlayedYoFave for having the perfect Twitter name for this situation. LOL!
As you can see in the image above, Deuces is #16 Hot 100 (-), #12 Radio Songs (+1), #16 Digital Songs (+17), #9 Ringtones (-1), and #3 MySpace Songs (+1)
Oh, and the song has also shipped over 1,000,000 units!
Congratulations, CB — for the 10th time! lol
The song lost a bit of momentum on the Hot 100 Chart coming in at 16, but is still riding high at #4 on MySpace Songs. The track is #13 on the Radio Songs chart, #33 Digital Songs, and #8 Ringtones.
Deuces is just unstoppable. Definitely needs to win a Grammy!
