Chris Brown released a new video during the charting week to further assist in raising his online profile. The video for “Don’t Wake Me Up,” from Chris Brown’s upcoming studio album “Fortune,” has received nearly 7 million views since its June 11 release, contributing to 23.4 million overall plays to Brown’s VEVO channel during the charting week.
