“Toni Braxton and Babyface each end lengthy absences from the top of Billboard’s Nielsen BDS-based Adult R&B radio airplay chart, as their duet ‘Hurt You’ steps 2-1.
The song is Braxton’s first chart-topper since “Just Be a Man About It” led for two weeks in 2000, while Babyface hadn’t reached the summit since “Every Time I Close My Eyes” resided at the apex for two weeks in 1997. “Hurt” is Braxton’s seventh No. 1 on the ranking and Babyface’s fifth.”
The chart ascension ends the lengthy 17-week reign of Robin Thicke‘s blockbuster tune ‘Blurred Lines’.
