Chris Brown had a positive progress hearing in a Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday.

According to the AP, Judge James Brandlin reduced the "New Flame" singer's drug testing requirement from three times to twice a week and said that Brown has been in compliance with his probation officer and therapist.

Judge Brandlin also denied a request, from the probation department, to increase Brown's community service requirement from three to four days a week.
