The hit single has sold over 355K combined digital and mobile units and is holding steady in the Top 10 on the iTunes music video chart. The 20-year-old, multi-entertainer's video clip for the track is in heavy rotation on MTV, MTV Jams, MTV Hits, Music Choice and was recently added to BET and FUSE.
"Crawl" Brown's second single, is receiving strong early support at the Urban Mainstream radio format and the song is expected to impact other radio formats around the album release early December. The "Crawl" video is already in heavy rotation on MTV Hits and MTV Jams, and BET.
Brown most recently performed sold-out dates on his "Fan Appreciation" tour in Dallas, Los Angeles and Houston and has received positive reviews. The Houston Chronicle declared "The dancing was expectedly slick and on point...every one of Brown's flash movements was met with screams." Dallas Morning News exclaims, "The guy sings exceptionally well and dances even better. Watching such a talented performer in an intimate setting is a thrill for any student of pop."
