Rihanna has beaten Chris Brown pretty badly ... in terms of first-week album sales for their newly-released efforts. Not the way Chris ... well, you know.
Brown's new album Graffiti debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard charts, selling 102,000 copies (Susan Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream sold 582,000 at No. 1).
That's quite a bit less than his ex, Rihanna, sold when Rated R debuted last month, entering the charts at No. 3 with sales of 181,000 in its first week.
Chris' sales didn't knock any socks off, but could've been worse.
Imagine if Walmart actually refused to sell Brown's CD - as "MechanicalDummy" (emphasis on Dummy) himself erroneously ranted on Twitter Monday.
Or imagine if he hadn't beaten the crap out of Rihanna.
Still, 102,000 isn't too bad. It's 20 percent of the way to gold certification in one week, and after the way his year began, those sales look pretty solid.
He might wanna check his facts before Tweeting, though.
Monday, the "Changed Man" threw an online hissy fit over a perceived slight by Walmart. After visiting a Connecticut store that didn't have his album, Chris flipped out over the (incorrect) assumption that the retail giant banned him altogether.
"I'm tired of this s--t," he wrote on his now defunct account. "Major stores r blackballing my CD. Not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers."
Graffiti is, by all accounts, fully stocked by the Wal, however. Either Chris just didn't see it or that particular store just hadn't put it out yet.
Either way, don't quit anger management classes yet, C-dog.
