Chris Brown Lands at No. 1 With ‘F.A.M.E.,’ Performs on ‘DWTS’
The singer's fourth studio release, 'F.A.M.E.,' snagged the No. 1 spot atop the Billboard album charts, with a total of 270,000 units sold. Brown beat out Jennifer Hudson, who settled for second place selling 165,000 copies of her sophomore effort 'I Remember Me.'
Although all of the 21-year-old's previous releases have been Top 10 hits, 'F.A.M.E.' marks his first album to debut in the top spot. "I wanna thank all of my fans for making my album number 1 in the country!! I love you! We did it," Brown tweeted Tuesday (March 29). "I live for my music!! I survive for my fans!!!"
Despite some opposition from fans and cast members, Brown also performed on ABC's 'Dancing With the Stars' Tuesday night. Decked in an all-red suit, and black bow-tie, the Virginia native showcased his hit single 'Yeah 3x,' opening with a few dance moves that appeared to be inspired by Michael Jackson's 'Smooth Criminal' video.
As expected, Brown was not interviewed on the show. "I did say to the producers that it might be to their advantage to not have me interview him," 'DWTS' host Tom Bergeron told Ryan Seacrest before the show. "Because my natural tendency would be to say something."
