Chris Brown noted on social media that all of the singles from his 2017 album Heartbreak on a Full Moon have gone platinum or gold. "Questions," the album's latest single, achieved gold certification on Jan. 5.
While Brown's tweet correctly says, "Every single off of #HeartbreakOnAFullMoon has been certified Gold or Platinum," a few folks have taken that to mean, "Every single track off of #HeartbreakOnAFullMoon." It's unclear where the whole "every song" slant started, but a handful of sites have since picked it up and it's also spread across social media.

When the Twitter account @iDailyRapFacts reported that every single song had been certified gold or platinum, some believed the news.
But many called the account out or already knew the truth. And some are just Chris Brown fans, period.
“Pills & Automobiles” featuring Yo Gotti, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, and Kodak Black; “Party” featuring Usher and Gucci Mane; “Privacy”; and “Grass Ain’t Greener” all went platinum. The album itself went gold in early November, a little over a week after it was released on Oct. 31.
