Chris Brown’s “Forever” Tops ITunes Chart (Again!) Thanks To “The Office”

For a guy many thought was finished, Chris Brown sure is having the last laugh. In fact, he’s having two laughs.

The 20-year-old R&B star’s new single, “I Can Transform Ya” featuring Lil Wayne and Swizz Beatz, was released to iTunes this week and quickly topped the R&B/Soul chart at No. 1. It sat pretty in that position for days until Brown’s 2008 hit “Forever” replaced it.

So, how did the year-old track get a sudden resurgence? Ah, the wonders of television.

“Forever” was featured in the highly watched wedding episode of the NBC hit sitcom “The Office.” Characters Jim and Pam reenacted the now infamous JK Wedding YouTube video that boosted Brown’s tune during the summer.

Currently, Brown holds the No. 1 and 2 spots on the R&B/Soul iTunes chart.

Watch and listen for “Forever” in the clip below:

Most of you haters never supported him in the first place, so no LOVE LOST!!!

            we know jayz…..buying his songs and artists songs, paying paparazzis and radio stations to spin songs, paying award shows for awards…you aint slick, we know thats jay and riris department…

            chris dont need that shit he has fans and he is talented he doesnt even know when his songs are released on itunes cos it takes him days to tweet it…

            dont be mad chris never left he is still as strong as ever…dont hurt urself….as for jay he tried it with the bet stuff and im sure he couldnt believe the backlash he got he had to come out lying he had nothing to do with it….let the game begin…hahahaha

        • Pay no attention to that person,(saymyname) they go from site to site that post articles on Chris Brown and leave the same foolish remarks, it’s oblivious that they haven’t anything better to do with their life, why they are bashing Chris Brown, they should be taking a spelling class!! They feed on us replying to their stupid comments, let’s not play into it anymore… Just one for the road, Chris Brown has announced that his Fans Appreciation Tour will kick off on November 14, in Houston, TX and finish up in New York City on December 13, 2009… now … (saymyname,) run and tell that!!!

    hows rihanna

    from jack

    • I do believe she is trying to move on with her life… at least from pictures posted on web sites show she is enjoying her life. If that’s not good enough maybe you should ask her?

    your the best ever in my life. i love you so much chris brown. Your the best for hip hop. I wish i could see you, love you sooooooooooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! from fatima

  20. That translates to #35 on the overall singles chart. For a first single release in years, that’s pretty horrible. I think he can kiss his career goodbye. Well that’s what happens when you’re a monster.

    • His career is far from over… you need to read more than these gossip blogs… most of the radio stations that stopped playing his music have resume playing it… This month he is the headliner of the big show in New Jersey at the Izod Center, I did say headliner… starting November 14 he will kick off his FANS APPRECIATION TOUR,first stop Houston, TX the tour will end in New York, December 13 He’s featured in several video’s, dancing and singing, appeared in Lebron James celebrity basketball game, sponsored by Nike and James, two new movies coming out in 2010, Mary J. Blige is singing the hit ” Stronger” from the soundtrack, More Than A Game and yes… Chris Brown wrote it and that’s his voice you hear on it. I don’t understand why people think his career is over well, that’s because like I said you weren’t a fan in the beginning..

    you like sexy.I love you sooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. First of all he is not buying his own song he still has fans, how in the world he will buy his own music he doesn’t have time to buy his own song. This article means shortly after The office episode where Pam and Jim got married the Forever came back on top of itunes again. Come on now let’s not be dumb do the math here, Chris probably didn’t know the Office was going to play Forever on their episode.

    BTW who ever said it is only his old song on itunes,umm…think again go back to see the top itunes songs and Chris has a new song out call I can transform ya and it’s on top of itunes too. Some haters in here needs to do some research before they say anything coming out there mouths.

  23. ok chris has beaten rihanna.and who hasnt make a mistake in his or her life just let the boy breathe cause he is da best anyone can be.not even jayz can outstand him.if u know anyone better dan him just let me know.I LOVE U CHRIS AND STAY ON TOP.GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHRISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  24. Matilda Jones says:

    people should understand that we all make mistakes and we all learn from them too. Leave the boy alone. Wahts wrong with you haters? You hated Michael Jackson and even when he is dead, you’re still hating on him. Dont just listen to them Chris, Just believe in God and focust on what makes you happy. Love you.

  25. HAHAHA!!! Chris Brown ain’t goin nowhere!!!!!! You haters are pathetic!!!!! Bye Haters!!!

  15. […] If you’re dying for CB to touch on the magic he created with his smash “Forever,” “I.Y.A.” is for you. It’s a love song lost at a disco. Pulsating beats, synths, and autotune voice tricks contribute to the mixed-matched magic of the track. This one can easily join “Forever” and turn into a nontraditional wedding day phenomenon. […]
