Chris Brown can add another gold plaque to his collection. The 21-year-old’s latest album ‘F.A.M.E.’ has been certified gold, just three weeks after its release. Powered by a bevy of hits including the Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes-assisted ‘Look at Me Now’ and the dance track ‘Yeah 3X,’ Brown’s fourth album is well on its way to platinum status.

Despite a small amount of negative press while promoting the release, ‘F.A.M.E.’ still debuted atop the Billboard charts selling over 270,000 copies in its first week. In a previous interview, the Virginia native revealed his high hopes for the album’s first week sales.

“I would love to do like a mill the first week, honestly,” he told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez. “And that’s really pushing, and I know that’s pushing, but I’m happy with anything I sell. If I sell 100,000 like last time, I’m cool. My last ‘Graffiti’ album was only 100,000, but it was a lot more added to it back then,” he explained referring to the backlash he received after assaulting Rihanna.

With a trio of No. 1 singles under his belt, Brown is prepping to release the fourth single off the album: ‘She Ain’t You.’ The mid-tempo track was the most added song on Urban Mainstream and the Top Five Greatest Gainer in the same format.

Brown co-wrote over half of the songs on ‘F.A.M.E.,’ which also features appearances from Justin Bieber, Ludacris and Wiz Khalifa.
