There’s no doubt about it, if 2013 is half as successful for Miguel as 2012 was, he’s well on his way to becoming R&B’s leading male contender.
Watching his latest LP ‘Kaleidoscope Dream‘ sell at a more consistent rate than Frank Ocean‘s ‘Channel Orange‘, the ‘Adorn’ singer- with heavy backing from his label- seems well on his way to ‘Beyonce-ing’ his field, despite forthcoming competition from Roc Nation‘s Elijah Blake.
Now find out why radio listeners have found both he and his ‘Dream’ inescapable below…
Beating releases by Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar and Keyshia Cole to the top spot, the singer’s ‘Adorn‘ now sits atop Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop airplay chart, enjoying more radio spins than any other urban release in the last week.
Marking his latest run atop the competitive tally, the star’s heavy radio presence might be the driving force behind the steady sales of its supporting album, which now boast sales of over 200,000 units moved since September 2012.
Impressive, considering numbers pulled by other acts in his genre, and taking into account that ‘Adorn’ has been available since February 2012. Meanwhile, 20 spots below him comes Rihanna‘s latest urban effort ‘Pour It Up’, which stands as this week’s greatest gainer after being sent to radio to push its supporting album, ‘Unapologetic’.
