Chris Brown new album 'Fortune' tops the Billboard charts

Chris Brown has debuted his new album Fortune and according to Entertainment Weekly, its sold 134,000 in the first week. Though this marks asignificant drop in sales since his last album F.A.M.E. , Fortune still puts him at number one on the Billboard charts:

Chris Brown has definitely found fame in many senses (not all desirable), and now the R&B crooner can add to his fortune.

After months of too-soon hype, false starts, and one epic bottle-throwing fight, the controversial Breezy saw his fifth album Fortune land at the No. 1 spot of this week’s Billboard charts (not exactly a breezy(!) ride to the top).

The new Brown album sold 134,000 copies in its first week, a significant drop from the 270,000 in debut-week sales of his previous album, last year’s F.A.M.E. While Fortune outsold the other non-Frank Ocean R&B contender of the season — Usher’s Looking 4 Myself (which sold 128,000 in its first week) — it should be noted that the alleged bottle tosser Brown competed mainly against a flurry of older albums that Amazon was dispensing at 99 cents a pop — a price so unusually cheap, Music Mix couldn’t even locate the proper “cent” symbol on the keyboard.
