Jive Records PLATINUM recording artist Chris Brown continues to take the world by storm. In just 6 short weeks after the release, the teen sensation reached platinum status due to his first blazing single "Run It" (produced by Scott Storch and has been #1 on several charts: Billboard's Hot 100 Singles, Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay, Singles Sales and on the radio charts #1 at Top 40 Rhythm and on the R&B Mainstream/Hip Hop charts) as well as his current single "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)" (produced by Dre and Vidal) which is about a boy seeing a beautiful girl that he can't allow to escape his grasp. Explains Chris, "It's about a girl that you maybe saw at a party or at a mall. You're telling your boys, 'I need to holla at her' but you don't know her name and you just say 'YO!'" The promotional video which Chris co-directed with Erik White is in heavy rotation on MTV as well as the BET networks. His third single "Gimme That,"(featuring Lil' Wayne) will be released on radio and the video clip on the video channels this spring.
