Chris Brown is still proving that he is not a force to be reckoned with when it comes to making hit music.

According to Billboard, Breezy’s collaboration with Young Thug for “Go Crazy” has become his biggest radio hit since 2008 when “Forever” topped the chart for three weeks. Additionally, the song also hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart and became the Virginia native’s sixth top song on the chart. This is the track’s 32nd week on that list and it now “ties for the third-longest trip to the top since the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart began in 1958,” according to the outlet.

“Go Crazy” was the lead single from Breezy and Thugger’s joint album, Slime & B. The project was released on May 5, which happened to be the “Take You Down” singer’s 31st birthday.

Aside from just being a catchy song, the single was also boosted by a viral dance craze that he started on social media. For the “Go Crazy Challenge,” fans dance alongside a moving vehicle as someone records them from inside the car.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the release of Breezy’s debut self-titled album. To commemorate his musical success throughout the years, he created a new interactive website which took fans through memory lane. His debut album, which was released when he was only 16 years old, reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and went triple platinum. It featured the hit songs “Yo (Excuse Me Miss),” “Say Goodbye,” “Poppin’,” “Gimme That” and “Run It,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“#TEAMBREEZY!” he tweeted on Monday (Nov. 30). “In celebration of the 15-year anniversary, check out the #HallOfFame site to take a journey across all the achievements over the years.”
