Fortune is the fifth studio album by American recording artist Chris Brown, released on June 29, 2012. The album is Brown's first release through RCA Records, following the disbandment of Jive Records in October 2011. As the executive producer of the album, Brown collaborated with several record producers, including The Underdogs, Polow da Don, Brian Kennedy, The Runners, The Messengers, Danja and Fuego, among others. The album also features several guest appearances, including Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Nas, Kevin McCall, Sevyn and Sabrina Antoinette. Originally scheduled for release six months after F.A.M.E. (2011), Fortune received several push backs.
Upon its release, Fortune received generally negative reviews from music critics, who were ambivalent towards its songwriting and material. In the United States, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 134,000 copies in its first week. The album also debuted at number one in the Netherlands and United Kingdom, and reached the top ten in Canada, France, Ireland, Japan and Switzerland.
Preceding the album's release was the lead single "Turn Up the Music", which reached number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and number one on the UK Singles Chart. "Sweet Love" and "Till I Die" were released as the album's second and third singles, respectively. "Don't Wake Me Up" was released as the fourth single and reached the top ten in several international countries. To promote the album, Brown made several award show and televised appearances across America.
