Brownâ€™s newfound bad boy image proved to be a detriment to his music career when he released his third studio album, Graffiti, in December 2009, less than a year after the Rihanna assault incident. Though the LP debuted at a respectable No. 7 on the Billboard 200, it was panned critically and sold a dismal 102,489 its first week. Graffiti is Brownâ€™s worst performing album, selling about 341,000 copies to date domestically. These numbers were in sharp contrast to the success of Brownâ€™s two previous efforts, his 2005 self-titled debut and 2007â€™s Exclusive, both of which circled the two million mark. However, Brownâ€™s latest project F.A.M.E., debuted at No. 1 on Billboardâ€™s 200 chart with approximately 270,000 units soldâ€”ahead of media darlings like Jennifer Hudson and British chanteuse Adele. Despite Brownâ€™s GMA meltdown taking place days before the albumâ€™s release, if his first week sales are any indication, he has a forgiving and loyal fan base willing to stick with him as long as he puts out good music.
