Chris Brown Breaks Two Billboard Records With Latest ‘Breezy’ Release

Although R&B singer Chris Brown has complained recently about the lack of promotion for his latest project, Breezy, it seems as if the audience has been giving it love anyway. The controversial performer has just set a Billboard record when he overtook the previous record set by The Weeknd on the Hot R&B Songs Chart.

According to Billboard, Brown has surpassed The Weeknd as the artist with the most charted songs on the Hot R&B Songs chart. With his latest album, Breezy, which was released last month on June 24, Brown broke the previous record of 71 songs that have charted on the list. Last week, the trade magazine announced that “Breezy” now has a career total of 79 records that have charted on the Hot R&B Songs Chart. With the release of a deluxe version that was recently released that includes an additional nine songs, he is expected to create a further divide between him and The Weeknd.

The chart has only been in existence for almost 10 years as it debuted in 2012. The songs that just arrived on the list are Psychic, featuring Jack Harlow; Addicted, featuring Lil Baby; Possessive, featuring Lil Wayne and BLEU; C.A.B. (Catch a Body), featuring Fivio Foreign; Till The Wheels Fall Off, featuring Lil Durk and Capella Grey; Closure, featuring H.E.R.; Sex Memories, featuring Ella Mai; Need You Right Here, featuring Bryson Tiller; and Pitch Black.

Breezy appeared in the number 2 slot on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and came in a little lower at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.

The top 6 artists that have charted the most since the Hot R&B Songs Chart debuted on October 20, 2012:

  • 79, Chris Brown
  • 71, The Weeknd
  • 56, Drake
  • 43, Khalid
  • 41, Bryson Tiller
  • 41, Summer Walker

 

Revolt has also reported that Brown set another record with his latest release. Brown took over Elvis Presley‘s record for most Billboard Hot 100 songs. The 32-year-old Brown has 112 entries on this particular chart which surpassed Elvis’ 109 recorded entries.
