Chris Brown’s “FORTUNE” Debuts At #1!!

To ou total and complete surprise, “Fortune” has out marched Usher’s “Looking For Myself” in it’s first week, moving a mere 6 thousand more copies then U’s follow up to to 2010’s “Raymond V Raymond!

If these titans couldn’t do a buck fifty then what kind of first week is Trey Songz gonna have?? #NoShade

Billboard reports the following:

Chris Brown earns his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, as “Fortune” debuts atop the chart, selling 134,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. 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.” 

Had it not been for Brown’s new “Fortune” release, we would have seen a surprise return to No. 1 for Katy Perry, as her “Teenage Dream” set zooms from No. 21 to No. 2 with 80,000 (up 417%) — and its best sales frame since Christmas of 2010. The set was one of 20 titles the Amazon MP3 store sale priced for 99 cents — for one day only — on July 3. (Perry also benefits from buzz earned by the release of her “Part of Me” film, which hit U.S. theaters on July 5.)
