While Chris Brown has in the spotlight essentially ever since making his self-titled debut in 2005, this year proved to be one of the most successful entries in the R&B singer's career to date.

Impressively, in 2017, Breezy has been rewarded a grand total of 40 plaques by the RIAA and also generated over 74.5 million in album and single sales, with the singer taking to Instagram to not-so-humbly point out his many victories this year.

Breezy delivers "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)," "Questions," "Party," and "Privacy" for his fans at Universal Studios Hollywood.

"40 PLAQUES THIS YEAR!" he wrote, captioning a slideshow of screenshots highlighting the details behind the certifications. " Today the RIAA released 23 more certified platinum and gold plaques that included 12 x multi platinum singles. 74.5 million single and album sales just in the US. #TEAMBREEZY."

Interestingly enough, there wasn't just one lone stand-out track from Brown this year, with the singer instead releasing a strategically massive quantity of material, such as with his 45-track collection, Heartbreak on a Full Moon.

After all, the numbers don't lie.
