Chris Brown Makes It Three

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).

Cheryl Cole’s “Promise This” Hits the Dancefloor with Remixes

CHART SPOTLIGHT. Spotify UK offers no less than nine remixes of Cheryl Cole’s latest hit single “Promise This.” Released on Oct.25, the track has already managed to top the UK singles chart. It sold 157,000 copies in its first week, which is the biggest selling record for a non-charity single.

Digital Dog, Almighty and Jorg Schmid are among the producers who remixed the “Promise This.”  The Jorg Schmid remix is available on the Clubland 18 compilation album.

“Promise This” is written by the singer Priscilla Renea Hamilton who failed to garner any success with her own album Jukebox from December 2009.Producer Wayne Wilkins has previously worked on tracks with Keri Hilson, Leona Lewis, Beyoncé and Jordin Sparks.

“Parachute” was the final track to be issued off the 3 Words album. The song reached No.5 in the UK, peaking at No.2 in Poland and topped the Romanian chart tally this March. Cole also made the headlines the other week as she and X-Factor colleague Dannii Minogue snubbed Jamiroquai singer Jay K following a foul-mouthed rant before the group performed on the show. Let’s see if Cheryl Cole returns to Skavlan to promote her new album.

WelcheMusic update: “Promise This” never charted in Sweden as it was only released as a promo single back in October. It reached No.19 on the Belgium singles chart.
