(Newser) – The hit YouTube video of a wedding party boogieing down the aisle has given Chris Brown a much-needed boost in record sales, not to mention publicity for something besides domestic violence, Billboard reports. The singer's Forever, the couple's song of choice, is now in the iTunes top 10 despite having been released last year. The BlogPulse tracker  finds that Brown is now being mentioned more than at any time since his arrest for beating up then-girlfriend Rihanna earlier this year.
