Chris Brown’s new album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon is doing numbers. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, the double LP has already been certified gold after just over a week on sale.
CB announced the feat of over 500,000 copies sold to fans on social media last night (Nov. 10). The Virginia singer also retweeted a post that declared HOAFM is the “fastest album by a male singer to receive a gold certification by RIAA in 2017.”
Earlier this week, Breezy expressed confusion after finding out the album would only have three days to chart, following it’s mid-week release on Halloween. “So I’m hearing that I will only be credited for 3 days of sales for my first week,” he wrote on social media. “DONT UNDERSTAND how that is…👀. Just like the 9 platinum plaques RIAA Just dropped out of the sky this year(not including the 3 that I just received for HOAFM singles). (10 platinums =💎) …. FUCK IT, either way I’m thankful for the support.”
It turns out the awkward release date didn’t hurt too bad. The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and looks to keep its spot this week as HitsDailyDouble is reporting the album will move another 71,000 copies.
Heartbreak on a Full Moon boasts 45 tracks and features guest appearances from Usher, Gucci Mane, DeJ Loaf, Lil Yachty, Ty Dolla $ign, Yo Gotti, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black and even more.
