With streams, radio adds, and hype in tow, Pop queen Janet Jackson‘s comeback single made a royal entry onto singles’ charts last week – not only gifting her 40th entry on the tally, but also her first mention in almost a decade. But, as this week’s refreshed tally suggests, the general public has pressed the “snooze button” on the singer’s latest R&B blazer ‘No Sleeep’ as it has taken a dive right out of the Hot 100 (an ousting also handed to fellow pop divas’ Madonna‘s ‘B*tch I’m Madonna’ and Britney Spears’ ‘Pretty Girls’ this week).
But, while pop fans sleep on the delectable groove, Urban fans can’t get enough as the track moves up to #8 on Adult R&B Songs chart and retains top 15 placement on the R&B Songs chart with gratitude due in great part to radio.
Now, as #JanFans await a chart boost from its highly anticipated official music video, fans of other artists – namely Rihanna – can already celebrate good tidings courtesy of that very medium. For, as her ‘B*tch Better Have My Money’ tune was slowly sliding down charts, the debut of its much-talked about music video last week helped hoist it right back into the top 20.
