*Chris Brown has been a ghost on the Billboard charts ever since his February 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The singer, however, returns to the top spot of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop songs tally this week with his farewell groove “Deuces,” reports Billboard.

The 21-year-old dropped his third album “Graffiti” in Dec. 2009 and it’s his lowest selling CD to date. Only two songs from the album hit the charts; the first single “I Can Transform Ya” peaked at No. 20 on the pop charts.

But “Deuces” appears to at least right the ship. The song is from his  mixtape, “Fan of a Fan,” and features rappers Tyga and Kevin McCall.

Brown was sentenced last year to five years’ probation and six months of community labor for assaulting Rihanna.
