The moon has already turned gold for Chris Brown. One week after being released, the R&B superstar’s massive 45-track double album, Heartbreak On A Full Moon, has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Arriving on Halloween, the singer’s newest album surpassed the 500,000 sales mark by Nov. 8, according to the RIAA. It also debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 after only three days of tracking due to its Tuesday release.
The star-studded set features appearances from R. Kelly and Jhené Aiko (“Juicy Booty”), DeJ Loaf and Lil Yachty (“Handle It”), plus Usher and Gucci Mane on the single “Party.”
Other guests include Ty Dolla $ign and Verse Simmonds (“Only 4 Me”), Yo Gotti, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and Kodak Black (“Pills & Automobiles”), as well as Future and Young Thug (“High End”).
Heartbreak is the follow-up to Brown’s 2015 album Royalty. “With this album, I wanted to capture all bases of who my audience like and what songs they can actually identify with,” he explained in a recent interview on Hot 97. “More R&B, all my girl fans love it, you gon’ have it. More pop, you gon’ have it. But it’s still gonna be my essence.”
