H.E.R. has the number-one R&B song in the country, as “Damage” moves from No. 3-1 in its 22nd week on the Billboard Adult R&B Airplay chart. The new tally makes H.E.R.’s second leader as a lone artist and her sixth topper overall on this respective chart. She previously went to the top earlier this year alongside Toni Braxton for “Gotta Move On.”
Given the new number-one title, the Oscar and Grammy winner now ties with Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Luther Vandross, Usher, and Brian McKnight. Each big-name artist has six total.
The day before dropping her long-awaited debut album Back of My Mind, “Damage” rose to the lead position on R&B radio last week. The platinum-selling track, which ranked the same on urban radio in March of this year, dethroned Silk Sonic’s smash single “Leave the Door Open” to reign atop the former airplay chart.
As previously mentioned, H.E.R. released her guest-heavy debut album. Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Thundercat, Lil Baby, YG, and more make appearances on the 21-track work.
On Sunday (June 27), H.E.R. is up for two 2021 BET Awards. Get the facts on those two nods here.
