Now that the world is finally catching on to what we in Team Breezy have known for years a.k.a. Chris Browns’ talent, it seems that Chris’ recent success on the charts and with critics is now making headline news and has even attracted the attention of the VP of Jive Label Group. Speaking on Chris’ recent set backs, his 9 week run at the top of the R&B/Hip-Hop chart with Deuces, his 3 GRAMMY nominations and his Top 15 hit Yeah 3X, Tom Carrabba had this to say;
“We feel good now that everybody’s talking about his music, which is exactly what Chris’ intention is… I think when he was a little bit younger he was still trying to find his way a little bit and fine-tune his craft, but I think over the last two years he’s absolutely developed a confidence and is very secure in his decision-making process.”
On Chris’ GRAMMY nominations for Graffiti;
They are “another step in the right direction for Chris Brown…. We always thought one day when Chris is where he belongs, people will go back to that record and say, ‘You know what, this is a record that was overlooked,'” Carrabba said. “We’ll see in time, but right now that’s behind us and we’re kind of looking forward.”

It seems the fans are chuckin’ up their fingers to the worldwide charts this week as Chris’s latest single “Deuces” continues to ride high in the charts. In the US, although taking a dip on the mainstream Hot 100 (87-96), Deuces soars 72 to 48 on the Top Hip-Hop and R&B Singles Charts due to an increase in radio play and downloads. The mainstream popularity of “Deuces” is also evident on the Billboard Ringtone chart where it debuts at #35 this week. Chris’s latest album “Graffiti”, also continues to chart well on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart where it enters its 31st week on the chart. Outside the US, “Deuces” is also beginning to make its impact on the worldwide charts. In Korea, Deuces managed to debut within the Top 15, arriving in at #12 due to strong downloads.
More chart updates will follow this week as chart numbers are released.

Good news CB fans, “Crawl” has officially made it into the UK’s Top 40 singles chart, giving Chris his ninth Top 40 hit! Crawl re-entered the UK charts this week at No. 35 beating its previous peak of 42. There also appears to be an alternative cover for “Crawl” in the UK as reported by the BBC (see above). The cover makes use of images from a photoshoot Chris did with Jennifer Tzar back in 2007 (of which the entire photoshoot can be seen right here).

On December 16th Chris Brown went live on the internet to answer questions put to him by the fans and by Radio One. The highlights of the live chat are now online! You can watch them below. Roll the tape!
Chris Brown has had a rough year and many doubted that he could ever have a career again, and doubted the success of his album Graffiti, but through it all, you true Breezy fans stuck by him and made SURE he wouldn’t fail, and by the look of these stats, he didn’t. With barely any promo for his album, no TV performances, his CD being blackballed by major outlets etc, I would say CB weathered the storm and came out proving all the naysayers wrong with stats like this.
- Graffiti debut: #7
- Graffiti debut: #1
Billboard digital downloads
- Graffiti debut: #3
As for iTunes, Chris I can transform ya song just went gold with over 500k downloads!
Chris Brown is STILL the prince of R&B and the future of it. His image may have been damaged, but his talent stays the same.
Right after the LIVE chat on Wednesday, December 16, watch an EXCLUSIVE “Audience Appreciation” Concert from Chris Brown just for you!
