Miguel’s 2010 single “Sure Thing” has hit No. 1 on the Mainstream Top 40 radio chart, unseating Rema and Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down.”
It’s the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter’s first chart-topper on the pop-dominated radio format.
Additionally, “Sure Thing” is the oldest previously-released song to reign atop the format this year, taking 12 years to achieve this feat.
The Weeknd held the record with his seven-year-old track from his Grammy-winning album, Starboy, released in 2016.
In addition to scoring his first leader on Top 40 radio, Miguel does so on Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart. In its 13th week, “Sure Thing” ascends two spots to claim the No. 1 position.
Elsewhere, “Sure Thing” has peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Miguel’s “Sure Thing” broke more ground on Billboard earlier this month. The song set a new record for the most weeks on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart when it hit 76 weeks in the May 6 issue. The song, which topped this list for one week in 2011, has now charted for 79 weeks.
Previously, “Sure Thing” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Digital Song Sales chart.
More than 869 million streams have been generated on Spotify for “Sure Thing.” Many of these new streams came from its newfound popularity, thanks partly to TikTok.
In January, Miguel challenged its welcomed return with a maxi-single featuring five song variations, including a sped-up version.
“Sure Thing” appears on Miguel’s 2010 debut album All I Want Is You.
Miguel isn’t just focused on nostalgia. He dropped the new song “Give It to Me” in April, and it’s his first proper solo single since 2021. No details have been announced if this track is attached to a new album.
Last week, Miguel was announced as one of the performers to play the second annual Juneteenth: A Global Celebration for Freedom.
