Chris Brown has recently complained about the lack of promotion for his latest project, Breezy, but it seems the audience has been giving it love anyway. The controversial performer 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, 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” has 79 records charted on the Hot R&B Songs chart. With the release of a deluxe version that includes an additional nine songs, he is expected to create a further divide between himself and The Weeknd.
The chart has been around for almost 10 years, debuting in 2012. The songs that just made 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 No. 2 spot on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and came in a little lower at No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
The top six artists who have charted the most since the Hot R&B Songs Chart debuted on Oct. 20, 2012, are:
– 79, Chris Brown.
– 71, The Weeknd.
– 56, Drake.
