Miguel Dominates R&B Airplay Chart

feed96e559ae23ac913dd8777b22ce81 Miguel Dominates R&B Airplay Chart

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’.

    Adorn is a fantastic song and I’m glad that he’s slaying with it. His album truly deserves more than 200,000 copies sold. I can’t at that horrid song “Pour it up” doing well on R&B airplay……so ratchet and not in a good way. SMH

    What is your problem? All I said was that the song sucks, which in my opinion it does. Why would Rihanna’s success bother me? If it was anybody’s success that would Adele. I don’t care if that’s the intent or by accident, the song sucks ass. Where did I say anyone needs to be like Mariah? Look at my avi, does Janet Jackson sound/look/act like Mariah? Get the f*** out of here, all you crazy stans who CANNOT take people’s opinions.

    Mariah!!!! Replied:

    And if we don’t keep it cute???? Mariah TOTALLY SLAYS YOUR FAVE INTO NON EXISTENCE! Please come back when your TALENTLESS fave has more achievements that 12 no.1s on the hot100. YOU keep it cute!

    Touché Replied:

    “cant wait for nicki to outshine the heffer on idol”? Sorry sweetie but overrated rookies don’t outshine legendary stars like Mariah. Also please take your own advice and remind the navy to keep it cute because you guys have been looking quite ratchet and hypocritical lately.

    ELLEN herself endorsed Miguel and ‘Adorn’ made the “best of 2012″ list as the R&B song of the year.

    So those people of the music industry should know what time it is. In february, I will not be here to watch Miguel being robbed on his time to shine because someone kissed a boy and liked it .
