Sony Music Entertainment - 02/13/2006
Jive Records Platinum recording artist Chris Brown is taking the world by storm!! Not only is he setting records in the US, but his blazing first single "Run It!" has moved to the #1 spot on the Billboard European Hot 100 Singles chart surpassing Madonna!! In addition, "Run It" increases to #4 on the European Airplay chart, while climbing to #5 on the European Digital Tracks chart. The world is catching on and it is reflected with major debuts: Australia #1, New Zealand #2, UK #2, and Germany #5.
"RUN IT!" is an irresistible up-tempo dance joint with an attention- grabbing hook. Says Chris, "It's basically saying to a girl 'If you're at the party by yourself, show me how you get down but if your man's here, tell me first.' So basically it's talking about runnin' it. Go ahead, do your thing." The single is the first hit single from his self-titled debut album, which features tracks produced by Scott Storch, Underdogs, Andre and Vidal, Cool and Dre, and Jazze Pha. The video is currently on MTV, MTV2, MTV Europe, and the BET network.
His second single released in the US "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)" is racing up the charts as well: #5 on the R&B Mainstream Chart, #7 on the Top 40 Rhythm chart, and #10 on the Hot 100 Chart.
