Chris Brown's Fortune is looking up. The newly released follow-up to 2011's F.A.M.E. has debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 with 134,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Fortune marks Brown's second album to debut atop the charts, with F.A.M.E. having earned similar honors when it was released in March of last year. That album bowed with 240,000 in its premiere week, spurred on by massive radio hits "Yeah 3x" and "Look at Me Now."

Fortune's singles have so far been somewhat less successful, and have included the songs "Turn Up the Music," "Sweet Love" and "Till I Die" featuring Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa. Earlier this year, Brown stole headlines when he released a remix of "Turn Up the Music" featuring his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
