Chris Brown has surpassed Elvis Presley to become the male singer with the most Gold-certified singles in music history.
The 33-year-old crooner earned his 56th Gold single last Thursday (Jan. 5) with his latest hit “Call Me Every Day” from his studio album Breezy, giving him two more Gold singles than the Memphis legend, who currently has 54 Gold-certified singles. NBA YoungBoy (93), Kanye West (88), Drake (74), Eminem (72), and Future are the only male artists with more RIAA Gold certifications (68).
Brown first surpassed Presley in October 2022, when his 2022 release “Under the Influence” reached 500,000 cumulative sales. He has sold 92.5 million singles in his career, making him one of the most successful male R&B artists of all time. The singer’s latest achievement comes after he became the most decorated singer in Billboard Hot 100 history last year, with over 100 chart entries. In July, it was reported that Brown had amassed 112 Billboard Hot 100 entries following the release of Breezy, placing ahead of Presley in the process.
As of press time, the late rock star had 109 appearances on the Hot 100 chart.
Breezy, Brown’s tenth studio album, was released in June 2022. Lil Wayne, Anderson.Paak, Blxst, Lil Baby, H.E.R., EST Gee, Wizkid, Jack Harlow, Tory Lanez, Fivio Foreign, Ella Mai, Yung Bleu, Capella Grey, Lil Durk, Davido, and Bryson Tiller all make appearances on the album, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. “Iffy” and “Warm Embrace” are two more singles from the album.
