Chris Brown's #TwitterBeef results in Media Success!
A lot of bad has come out of Chris Brown‘s Twitter feud with former B2K singer Raz B last week. The R&B star has been called a homophobe for remarks he made — then apologized for — during the back and forth exchange with the attention-starved Raz-B, adding more unneeded criticism in the media Breezy has to face down. But there is some good news.
Billboard released this week’s Social 50 chart, its new chart which tracks the most active artists on several social media platforms, like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, and thanks to the feud, Brown is on the rise.
Billboard.biz reports "Chris is up from No. 33 to No. 21, with a whopping 375% gain in Twitter followers over last week’s total".
Over on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, Brown continues to do well. His new single, “Yeah 3X,” stays at No. 19 for a second week in a row.
