Even though Chris Brown’s ‘Heartbreak On a Full Moon’ only got three days of of sales in its first-week because it dropped on Halloween, which landed on a Tuesday this year, he still managed to earn a RIAA gold certification in only one week.
The 45-track double album, that requires time to fully digest and listen to didn’t top the Billboard 200 charts and earned a third spot with 68-thousand sales its first-week (essentially three days). Breezy urged his massive fan base to stream the album on all platforms and purchase multiple copies, which apparently they did.
Chris then shared a photo on his IG of his label submitting the album for a gold certification just a few days removed from the release. From there the news circled that the album had surpassed 500-thousand in sales, warranting a gold plaque.
With singles off the album like the Future-assisted “High End” and “Questions” continuing to climb on the charts, it isn’t too farfetched that the double album might be certified-platinum by the end of the year. However, for double albums the RIAA requires a double LP to do 500-thousand for it to qualify for platinum.
Make sure you grab ‘Heartbreak On a Full Moon’ on all platforms.
