Singer Chris Brown scores his seventh No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart as Heartbreak on a Full Moon debuts with 68,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending November 2, 2017, according to Nielsen Music. The 45-track set was released Oct. 31, permitting only three days of activity in the tracking week.

Brown’s seven leaders on the list include, Chris Brown, one week, Dec. 17, 2005, Graffiti, one week, Dec. 26, 2009, F.A.M.E., three weeks, April 9, 2011,Fortune, one week, July 21, 2012, X, two weeks, Oct. 4, 2014, Royalty, three weeks, Jan. 9, 2016
and Heartbreak on a Full Moon, one week to date, Nov. 18, 2017. Since Brown first topped the survey in December 2005, his seven leaders ties the R&B star with Drake, Future and The Game for the most among all acts in that span.

In addition to his No. 1s, Brown also has charted two other sets, both of which just fell short of the top slot , 2008’s Exclusive peaked at No. 2 and his 2015 collaboration with Tyga, Fan of a Fan, reached No. 3.

Heartbreak’s arrival causes three moves on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart: “Pills and Automobiles” (featuring Yo Gotti, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and Kodak Black) moves 17-14, “Questions” climbs 38-34 and “High End” (featuring Future and Young Thug) re-enters at No. 42.
