Don’t call it a comeback. Raheem DeVaughn’s single “Don’t Come Easy,” produced by Kid Classic, has reached the top five on Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs chart at No. 5 this week. This is DeVaughn’s first song to reach this milestone since 2008. The slow jam is lifted from his new effort, Decade of a Love King.
Along with entering the top five on Billboard, DeVaughn has earned the same success on urban adult contemporary radio. “Don’t Come Easy” has racked up 1,400 radio spins since its premiere in May.
The Love King has released solid radio singles since making his Billboard Adult R&B Songs debut in 2005 with “Guess Who Loves You More.” Yet, 2008 proved to be his winning year, scoring his first-career number one single on the chart with “Woman.” The latter track received a Best Male R&B Vocal Performance nomination at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards.
Congratulations again Raheem!
