Forgive or Forget: Chris Brown’s ‘Fortune’ Debuts at #1
Chris Brown’s latest–and perhaps last–album, Fortune sold 134,000 copies this week.
It’s his second number one album:
It follows his last release, and first No. 1, 2011’s “F.A.M.E.” That album launched atop the list with 270,000 — more than double the start of “Fortune.”
Brown is the second R&B hitmaker in a month to debut at No. 1 with a comparably soft launch. Four weeks ago, Usher‘s “Looking 4 Myself” started at No. 1 with 128,000. That marked a significant slide from the 329,000 first week of his last full-length album, the No. 1-debuting “Raymond v Raymond.”

Clearly, #TeamBreezy goes hard. Still, though, it’s somewhat surprising that Brown, despite his violent history with ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, alleged fights with Drake, and overall anger management problems, remains so popular.
Either Breezy has an incredible PR team behind him, or it’s something else.
Why has Chris Brown endured?
Has the public forgiven him for his violent past?
