Chris Brown

Chris Brown is very upset that the RIAA will only count 3 days of sales for his new double album Heartbreak On a Full Moon.

Brown is probably kicking himself for releasing his emotional album on a Tuesday rather than the previous Friday.

The 28-year-old singer took to Instagram to complain to his 40 million followers that his double album is only expected to sell 21,000 copies and streams. Wow. Are you telling me that not even 1 percent of his total social media followers bought his album?

21,000 is a pitiful number even if the double album sales were counted for the full 7 days.

What’s the point of having 40 million followers on Instagram alone (not counting Twitter or Snapchat) if his followers don’t support his music?

Once again this is proof that social media followers don’t amount to a hill of beans. Unless you’re selling makeup or perfume.

Maybe Brown should quit the music biz and launch a makeup line for men?

    people don’t buy albums like they used to. especially with the (free) youtubes and pandoras of the world.

    best of luck to chris. he is a talented artist for sure.

    ^^^^^^^^^^
    he may not have had a say. Im not sure why it went from Tuesday for new music to Friday anyway. Been like that for a few years. I hate it.

    I hit that little ‘ADD+” button on Apple Music. And it’s good from what I’ve heard so far. Real good, actually.

    However, I’m not sure if I’ve completed the whole project. Had to listen in shifts and I kept accidentally listening to a couple over and over by accident. I ain’t got damn near three hours to dedicate to listening to it as a whole.

    Good job, though!

    Ummmm doesn’t sound like he’s crying to me.

    I understand wanting to be recognized for your hard work, but more often than not, the awards and charts are not a reflection of the quality of the music. In my opinion, this is a really good album. He should be proud. Period.

  • imright

    ????this is an EXCELLENT ALBUM. everyone should have a listen ?? im so happy to see the amount of celebs showing him support too ??

    He is very talented so I don’t think he should quit music but I know a lot of people will buy his makeup if he did come up with a line. There’s a lot of gay/bi you-tubers who will buy and encourage their subscribers to buy it.

  • Keisha Hannah

    I dont believe it. It just came out 2 days ago. Dont they go by weekly sales?

  • NicoleZee

    HE IS A WOMAN BEATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How anyone can support a sick criminal is beyond me. To support someone like him attests to the lack of character that people have and it’s really sad, more sinister really. People have daughters, mothers, aunties, and women themselves are out here are drooling over him and supporting him knowing that he beats the shit out of women. Men will NEVER respect women until they begin to respect themselves. Sick and sad.

  • Elevated Soul

    Chris Brown lost most of his fans after he beat Rihanna,and he has yet to deal with that fact.I tried to support him afterwards but his arrogance turned me off.

  • hotntot95

    Music now has been stepped on, kicked, ran over, chopped, screwed and thrown against the wall…nothing stays the same, no worries the industry will find a new way to control the masses…?

  • kekeb

    He did. He addresses it on his documentary as well as numerous other times. He can’t change his actions from that night. Neither can you change the actions from something you did 10 years ago, so why be so unforgiving?

  • Elevated Soul

    I didn’t see the documentary because I’m no longer a fan………

    It’s not about being unforgiving…..I wish him well but it’s my prerogative not to support him anymore.

  • http://ebonynsweet.com Ebony N’ Sweet

    It was suppose to be released on the 3rd. I was confused as hell lol… I have no idea why he didn’t wait.

  • Bonita

    “Unless you’re selling makeup or perfume” . . . or waist trainers, hair weave, or cheap azz boutique clothes imported from China.

  • BingBangBoom

    When did they make the change from Tuesdays to Fridays? I was wondering about that. I use to pick up albums faithfully on Tuesdays back in the day. Now it’s whenever I’m at the store and if I like the artist.

  • Socivol

    I think it was two years ago, but that’s why he’s only being credited for three days of sales. I am confused how I know this but he doesn’t.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah I never pay attention to the followers cuz it definitely doesn’t equate to possible spend dollars. I follow celebs to see their homes primarily. For the rose vets, they know I speak of real estate, mansions, and celeb homes for sale all the time. IDC much about your new cd coming out unless I’m a diehard fan. For now, Janet’s the only artist who’s cd I’d buy with or without following her.

    I just want to see your house, how it looks, and possibly the celeb lifestyle and perhaps business ventures they’re working on.

    I could forgive him, but his treatment of Kararuche (online treatment, not including her claims) proves not much has changed. He’s a horrible young man.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Exactly!!

  • SG

    He looks terrible.

  • Allisha Jackson

    Well, the album is the bomb, I haven’t heard a track I didn’t like and you get 45 songs…so y’all sleep if you ain’t checked it out.

  • IAmLegend

    It actually makes sense. The world needed to move to a global release date verses what used to happen: different countries had their own release dates which led to bootlegging of music before it was released in the US several days later. Now every country releases on a Friday and it also falls on payday for most people.

  • dontgetblocked

    Yeah. He’s a druggie but his music is great. He truly is one of the most talented artist out.

  • yo ebz

    I think it was once Beyonce dropped her self titled album out as a surprise album on a Friday the 13th a few yrs ago. After that is when i noticed it at least

  • Li

    Social media is not a guarantee for anything! Anybody who doesn’t do the hard work — go on the radio, TV, take out ads, and just rely on social media followers to sell is a fool.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    chile every damn song riding on this album…. I haven’t skipped not one song yet …. Not one … And it’s 45 songs chile…. Fugg demm statistics …. Better do some deep research Sandra ya Boy Brown….. Brown…. I say Brown…. Doing real Good … Trust….. 11111 ?

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Didn’t know he had an album out. He should do like Bieber, turn yourself to GOD and do a more positive album. People have enough of his rants and dark side….

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    I love his new cd it’s been in rotation. But I use Spotify SO…

  • R in NYC

    I pay for Google Play music so I downloaded his cd and it was cool. Sounded better than Keysha Cole’s new CD.

  • Malcom Flex

  • Patricia

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    All day ??? chile finally …. Some tunes to ride to…. Considering he on every hit on the radio …. Shyt rides ?

  • JustB

    Maybe his fans don’t want to help him feed his drug habit

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I like some of the songs on this album, but it’s not enough for me to buy it

  • suganspice68

    Sandra Rose’s write up about Chris Brown is so funny! Makeup for men,lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    July 10, 2015. I believe it was partially due to world wide audiences and some countries uploading new releases before other countries got their Friday release. So this way, everyone drops on Fridays.

  • http://thesinglewhitefemale.com Fefe

    It’s his own fault for not dropping on a Friday like everyone else does (normally). I’ve heard nothing but positive things about his album honestly but dropping on a Tuesday, well.. He should’ve known better.

  • http://stupidDOPE.com/ stupidDOPE.com

    Can’t wait to see his streaming numbers.

  • R in NYC

    Absolutely
