Despite his controversial release day yesterday (Mar. 22nd), R&B singer Chris Brown’s fourth studio album, F.A.M.E is still shaping up to win. According to HitsDailyDouble, the crooner is predicted to land the No.1 spot on next week’s Billboard 200 Album Chart with sales from anywhere between 250-275k. Brown’s last album, 2009’s Graffiti, sold less than half of that, with 102,500 copies.
If these projections are true, F.A.M.E will be Brown’s first number one album, beating out this week’s R&B competitors Jennifer Hudson and Bobby V.
Brown recently assured his followers that, “F.A.M.E. is me giving fans every aspect of who I am as far as my art, my culture, and my concepts.”
In support of the album, Brown will embark on his F.A.M.E Tour beginning in Australia in April 2011.
