The Antonio Dixon-produced single, which became the highest radio debut of her solo career, nabs the living legend her first urban AC chart-leader since 2018’s “Long As I Live.”
By reaching more than 13 million listeners, “Do It” has great potential to earn Braxton her ninth number one hit on the Billboard Adult R&B Airplay chart in the coming week. It has repeated its peak position at No. 3 since the tracking week of July 18.
“Do It” is the lead single from Braxton’s upcoming album, Spell My Name. Slated to arrive on August 28 via Island Records, the LP will include the upbeat heartbreak anthem “Dance,” as well as the Missy Elliott-assisted remix to her recent hit.
