Miguel‘s lengthy promo run in support of his fourth album, ‘War & Leisure,’ has proven useful in his battle for the top of R&B charts this week.

The set was kicked off by the Travis Scott-assisted ‘Sky Walker,’ a sleeper hit that’s worked its way up to become his highest charting solo outing since his signature hit, 2012’s ‘Adorn’ (#17 peak on the Hot 100).  Overall, the cut marks his first appearance in Hot 100 top 60 since 2013’s ‘Beautiful’ with pop icon Mariah Carey (#15 peak).

The song’s success, in conjunction with the critical acclaim of its follow-ups ‘Pineapple Skies,’ ‘Told You So,’ and a trusty album bundling deal with ticket sales from the recently announced ‘War & Leisure’ tour (click here for dates), helped hoist the project to the top of a number of rhythmic album charts this week.

Tiffany Haddish is on the hottest of career streaks!

After years of climbing slow and steady, the actress-comedienne was thrust into the global spotlight (seemingly overnight) after a much loved turn in summer smash ‘Girls Trip.’

With the flick making over $100 million at the box office, the 38-year-old has been in all of demand. So much so that she became the first black comic to host Saturday Night Live and is wrapping a movie called ‘Night School’ with Kevin Hart.

Before that though, she’s making sure to tell her own story in biography ‘The Last Black Unicorn’ – which she stopped by The Breakfast Club today to promote.

Despite the many dark corners of her narrative (see: being in the foster care system,  homeless, in an abusive relationship), Haddish now celebrates the bumps on her journey for getting her where she is.

During her funny yet frank sit-down, she also revealed that the challenges aren’t over. Indeed, she expanded on some of the hurdles encountered during her SNL gig, family dramas, and a whole lot more.
