Chris Brown's breakfast show meltdown appears to have given him a career boost - the temperamental R&B star is on course to end Adele's reign at the top of the U.S. album charts next week (30Mar11) and score his first number one.
The Kiss Kiss singer's career seemed to be over in 2009 after he was convicted of beating up then-girlfriend Rihanna, but the hitmaker has since bounced back and is wowing critics and fans alike with his new release, F.A.M.E.
And even his much-reported tantrum backstage at TV show Good Morning America following a tense interview about his two-year-old assault hasn't derailed his charge to the top of the charts.
Billboard experts predict Brown's F.A.M.E. will debut with over 250,000 sales and edge out Jennifer Hudson for the number one spot.
