Earth, Wind & Fire has secured their first top 10 in 28 years on the Billboard Adult R&B Airplay chart, as “You Want My Love” featuring Lucky Daye hits No. 9 this week.
The world-renowned band’s last top 10 was “Sunday Morning” in October 1993. The song, which reached No. 10, appeared on their album Millennium released that same year.
Daye’s previous top 10 included his debut 2018 single “Roll Some Mo,” climbing to the number eight position in spring 2019. The Grammy-nominated track is lifted from his debut album Painted, among Rated R&B’s best R&B albums of 2019.
Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Demonte Pose worked behind the boards on “You Want My Love,” a reimagined take on Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1975 B-side “Can’t Hide Love.”
Earth, Wind & Fire plan to release collaborations like the one with Daye through a deal with Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). Their last album, Now, Then & Forever, was released in 2013.
Daye and VanJess recently performed a live rendition of the “Slow Down (Remix).” He’s taking the stage for additional shows this fall, including H.E.R.’s Lights On Festival and the Broccoli City Festival.
