Chris Brown Earns First Hot 100 Top 5 Hit In Over 10 Years

Love him or loathe him, Chris Brown continues to prove himself the preeminent male R&B artist of the 2010s – a feat underscored by the enduring success of his latest Hot 100 hit, ‘No Guidance.’

A collaboration with former nemesis Drake, the Vinylz-produced tune – which debuted at #9 upon its June 2019 premiere on the chart –  marked a personal milestone for Brown as it became his first top 10 hit (as a leader) since 2013’s ‘Loyal.’  

Now, it’s pressing its way toward #1 as the tally’s refreshed list shows ‘Guidance’ has danced its way into the top 5.

Found aboard the Grammy winner’s latest album, ‘Indigo,’ the bop rose on this week’s chart thanks to a handsome mix of streaming (32.8 million), radio impressions (62 million), and digital sales (6,000).

Billboard reports:

“Chris Brown’s “No Guidance,” featuring Drake, reaches the Hot 100’s top five, rising 7-5 and besting its prior No. 6 high; it debuted at No. 9 on the June 22-dated chart and has spent all but two of its 16 weeks on the list in the top 10.

Brown earns his first top five Hot 100 hit in over 11 years, since “Forever” ranked at No. 4 on Sept. 20, 2008, after reaching No. 2. His four other top five entries: “No Air,” with Jordin Sparks (No. 3, 2008); “With You” (No. 2, 2008); “Kiss Kiss,” featuring T-Pain (No. 1 for three weeks, 2007); and “Run It!” (No. 1, five weeks, 2005).”
