Chris Brown's newest album Heartbreak on a Full Moon is killing the music charts despite the short sales week. Meanwhile, Ryan Destiny is being sued by her manager. Deets inside...
Chris Brown proves he makes his own rules when it comes to this music industry. The R&B crooner dropped his double 45-track album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, on Tuesday (October 31st), which means his sales are only being credited for three days due to the Billboard format. But, he still killed his first week.
Heartbreak on a Full Moon came in the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and he nabbed the No. 1 spot on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for its debut.
Breezy wasn’t happy about Billboard's album sales rule (that has been in place for the last 2 years) and expressed his frustrations on Instagram writing, “So I’m hearing that I will only be credited for three days of sales for my first week. DONT UNDERSTAND how that is."
Despite the short sales week, HOAFM marks the Grammy Award winner's seventh #1 debut on the R&B/Hip-Hop album chart and eighth Top Ten solo album debut on the Billboard 200 chart.
Not only that, HOAFM has crossed the threshold needed for an application for a Gold RIAA certification, according to his friend Jake Miosge.
FIRST WEEK WE ARE GOLD BIH!!! According to the label without all numbers calculated we are already gold with #HeartbreakOnAFullMoon.

Before Breezy dropped his latest musical offering...
The "Privacy" singer hosted an album listening party on Halloween (the day his album dropped) at Universal Studios and he had a super cool cake to celebrate. The singer hit up Sweet Stacks Cakery (via Instagram) and requested to have his album cover created in cake form 24 hours before the party.
Sweet Stacks owner Dejenia pulled an all nighter and was able to get the job done to Breezy's liking. The cake ended up costing $1000 to make. The singer was so impressed with Dejenia's work, he invited her to the listening party. Sweet! Literally.

“STAR” actress Ryan Destiny is involved in some legal drama.
According to The Blast, Ryan’s management company, Primary Wave Entertainment, is suing her over unpaid commissions and claims she breached her contract.
The site reports:
Destiny was sued by Primary Wave Entertainment — they claim she was under their management in 2015 when she landed a lead role on Lee Daniel‘s hit show, “Star,” and was contractually obligated to pay them a 10% commission.
According to docs, obtained by The Blast, Primary Wave says Destiny has breached her contract by failing to pay for “Star,” despite continuing to “perform extensive services as her management firm.”
They claim they just want what’s owed from her “STAR” acting gig.
More money, more problems.
