Chris Brown Named Billboard’s Top Artist of 2008

Music’s got a new king in Chris Brown–at least according to Billboard, which named the 18-year-old singer the top artist of 2008.

“It’s bigger than what I can ever imagine. It’s unexpected totally, so it’s a surprise,” Brown, who also nabbed the honor in 2006, said.

With hits like “With You,” “Forever” and “No Air” (with Jordin Sparks), Brown heated up the charts consistently through 2008.

“I’ve had a good year but I still feel like a little insecure in those parts. I’m like, `There’s little ol’ me getting an award’ — that’s incredible,” he said.

Lil Wayne was runner-up, girlfriend Rihanna was No. 3, and Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift rounded out the top five.
