WATCH: Chris Brown Channels ‘Thiller’ in Futuristic ‘Tempo’ Music Video
Since the release of his eighth studio album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, Tempo has stood out as one of fans’ favorites and Chris became so aware that he’s decided to make the song the album’s official sixth single.
Written by Chris alongside Sean Momberger, Omari Toure, Lonnie Kimble and Patrizio Pigliapoco it was produced by Sean Momberger and appears on the first disc of the double album as track 9.
While the song is a sleek romantic tune about Chris’ excitement of having sex at every different motion and foreplay, the video features Chris as the leader of bandits in a futuristic setting, going on a crime spree on Tempo Street. The group features zombies and Frankenstein makeup, which gives me Michael Jackson Thriller vibes:
Released digitally October 31, 2017, and onto CD three days later by RCA Records, Heartbreak on a Full Moon debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200, with sales of 25,000 copies and earning 68,000 album-equivalent units.
By the end of 2017, Heartbreak on a Full Moon had accumulated 608,000 album-equivalent units in the United States, with 80,000 being pure sales.
On January 18, 2018, Heartbreak on a Full Moon was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for combined sales and album-equivalent units of over 1,000,000 units in the United States (in this case, 500,000 double album sets, which are double-counted by the RIAA).
