Chris Brown is among the first class of artists to land an RIAA certification in 2023. His 2022 single “Call Me Every Day” featuring Wizkid has been certified gold after surpassing 500,000 equivalent units.
The Blaisebeatz and RoccStar-produced bop is the first song from Brown’s tenth album, Breezy, to achieve certification.
Brown released “Call Me Every Day” a week before Breezy arrived on June 24, 2022, via his Chris Brown Entertainment/RCA Records.
That September, Brown serviced “Call Me Every Day” to urban radio as its next single. The plays on this format have impacted the song’s positions on a few Billboard charts, including the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, where it is now No. 11 the week ending Jan. 21.
“Call Me Every Day” peaked at No. 8 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart earlier this month. It peaked at No. 4 on the Hot R&B Songs, while it debuted and went to No. 76 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“Call Me Every Day” is nominated for Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration (Contemporary) at the 2023 NAACP Image Awards. Brown is also nominated for Outstanding Male Artist and Outstanding Album (Breezy).
The 54th NAACP Image Awards airs on BET on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2023, at 8 p.m. ET.
In recent months, Brown has won and been nominated multiple times during his Breezy era.
At the 2022 American Music Awards, Brown won Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist, beating out The Weeknd, Brent Faiyaz, Lucky Daye and Givēon.
Breezy, Brown’s tenth studio album, scored a Best R&B Album nomination at the 65th Grammy Awards, which will take place on Feb. 5 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
This past December, Rated R&B recognized Brown’s recent LP Breezy on its 30 Best R&B Albums of 2022 list.
“While the album’s brightest moments come when Brown leans into that pure R&B sound, he doesn’t necessarily miss when he ventures outside that zone. Simply put, Brown is a guy who enjoys making music with no restraints and Breezy is yet another example,” Rated R&B’s Keithan Samuels wrote.
Brown recently collaborated with Vedo on “Do You Mind” from his album Mood Swings. In late 2022, Brown reunited with Tyga on the track “Nasty.”
On Feb. 13, Brown will launch his headlining Under the Influence Tour, where he will play across the U.K. and Europe.
Brown’s upcoming tour is named after his 2019 song, “Under the Influence,” which had a resurgence last year.
The platinum-selling song went to No. 1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Airplay chart, making it his 13 chart-topper. He ties with Bruno Mars and Usher for the third most chart-toppers on this list.
