On the eve of H.E.R.’s debut album release, the Grammy and Oscar-winning musician collects another number one hit on R&B radio with the platinum-selling song “Damage.”
In unseating Silk Sonic’s breakout hit “Leave the Door Open,” H.E.R. charts the seventh single of her career — solo or featured — to peak at the top position on this respective airplay format.
The last time H.E.R. was crowned with a chart-topper on R&B radio earlier this year with living legend Toni Braxton for “Gotta Move On.”
In a related note, “Damage” already went suspended from the number-one spot on another radio format — urban radio, that is. It was the multi-hyphenate performer’s first solo hit there.
Rated R&B premiered H.E.R.’s stirring rendition of “Damage” from the 20th anniversary Honda Civic Tour. Revisit it here.
This Herb Alpert-sampled single is a part of H.E.R.’s Back of My Mind debut, which arrives at midnight (June 18) via MBK Entertainment/RCA Records. The album features appearances from Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, KAYTRANADA, Thundercat, Lil Baby, and more.
Breezy appears on “Come Through,” which has a sensual video attached to it.
At this year’s BET Awards, H.E.R. is in the running for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and Dr. Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirational Award for “Hold Us Together.”
In other related music news, the singer-songwriter recently shared a remake of Marvin Gaye’s “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)” for Apple Music’s Juneteenth 2021: Freedom Songs playlist. She also issued “Change,” an inspiring anthem attached to the upcoming Netflix series, We The People, out July 4.
Both songs follow H.E.R.’s Amazon Music’s Prime Day Show announcement. The event happens today (June 17).
