CHART SPOTLIGHT. Chris Brown currently climbs the Swedish singles tally with “Yeah 3x.” Originally issued in October last year, the track has amassed one million downloads in the US.
Everyone’s not happy about the success. A bitter tweet by producer Calvin Harris addressed that Brown stole the hook from his 2009 hit “I’m Not Alone.” “Yeah 3x” was the first single to be lifted off his fourth set F.A.M.E. It is actually Chris Brown’s second biggest hit in the UK ever. The track climbs 8-6 this week (13/3) and could very well beat the No.4 peak of “Forever” back in 2008.
Brown got his breakthrough back in 2005 with “Run It” which hit the No.1 spot in the US. In 2007, he secured another chart-topper with “Kiss Kiss” (feat. T-Pain).
In 2008, he managed to get a world-wide hit with “No Air” together with Jordin Sparks. Chris Brown currently has two hits in the UK top 10 – “Champion” (No.6) and “Yeah 3x” (No.8).
