Critics thought Chris Brown's GMA outburst would have a negative affect on his record sales. Well Chris proved the critics wrong. Chris debuted at #1 on Billboard 200 with 273,346 sales, making the second largest debut of the year after Adele's album of 315,000 sales.
Jennifer Hudson came in at #2 selling 167,373 copies.
Congrats to them both.
