    It's a great day for Chris Brown!

    E! News has learned that the singer, who appeared in a Los Angeles court today, was praised by the judge for being in full compliance with the terms of his probation after being presented with a favorable report from the probation department. At the request of Brown's attorney, his random drug testing has been reduced to two times a week (from 3 times a week).

    The singer didn't say much on social media about his positive day in court, but did retweet Alan Duke of CNN's tweet that read, "Judge just praised @chrisbrown for a good probation report, noting he's tested negative on all drug tests since release from jail."

    Brown's next court hearing is set for Oct. 23 and his probation is slated to end in January 2015.

    Although he kept his social media cheer to a minimum, it was clear that Breezy was in a good mood.

    The celeb decided to post a video spoofing Sam Smith's famous hit "Stay With Me" by changing up the lyrics a bit. "Oh won't you stay with me," he began to belt a capella, reminding fans yet again that his vocal chops are no joke. "Cause I bought your new weave/ Now I didn't spend my cheese/ Bitch you owe me."

    But it hasn't all been fun for Brown lately. The R&B star recently posted a photo of himself in court wearing an orange jumpsuit and reflected on the rollercoaster ride he's been on in the last few years. "I been through a lot in my life. Made a lot of mistakes along the way. But through it all I've always been true to myself and through God I've been able to take care of my family! I should regret some things but I think the lessons learned will shape me into a real man. I'm grateful and appreciative! Thank you for life!"
