In just 6 short weeks after his November 2005 release, the teen sensation reached platinum status due to his first blazing single "Run It" (produced by Scott Storch which has been # 1 on several charts: Billboard's Hot 100 Singles, Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay, Singles Sales and on the radio charts# 1 at Top 40 Rhythm and on the R&B Mainstream/Hip Hop charts) as well as his second single "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)" (produced by Dre and Vidal) which is about a boy seeing a beautiful girl that he can't allow to escape his grasp. His current single "Gimme That,"(featuring Lil' Wayne) is quickly climbing the radio charts as well. Explains Chris, "It's just explaining how I'm coming out, the typical bragging about yourself a little bit but not too much and telling the girl who might be older than you, 'You may be three years older, but you're hot, gimme that.'" The just released promotional video in which Chris co-directed with Erik White is in medium rotation on MTV as well as the BET networks.

With his success, Chris recently won an MTV TRL AWARD for Favorite Artist Under 21, an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding New Artist as well as a Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist!!! He was just recently nominated for three 2006 BET Awards including Best New Artist and Best Male R&B Male artist!!
