Unfamiliar with the beauty above?
If so, allow us to introduce you to Mila J, the R&B princess cut from the same creative cloth as younger sister Jhene Aiko, and now hailed as the genre’s young, fresh and new it girl.
How she’s now on course to joining the likes of Kelly Rowland, Brandy, Keyshia Cole and Ciara atop R&B’s food chain?
Good news below…
Pulled from her 2014 release ‘M.I.L.A’, J’s latest single ‘Smoke, Drink, Break-Up’ may have failed to impact the ‘Billboard Hot 100’, but may find itself doing so in the weeks to follow this one thanks to streaming points scored by the cut’s official video.
That’s right, less than three months after its unveiling, official VEVO streams of the video now sit at the 1,399, 386 million milestone, placing it just 614 spins away from kissing the 1.4 million mark.
Impressive, when one learns that the general public has spent a combined total of seven years watching the video, and considers the 60,000 views it pulled on March 22nd alone.
Put simply, should Camp Mila play their promotional cards right, the LA-born stunner may land herself a coveted spot on the ‘Hot 100’ by way of streaming figures and not traditional sales, and – if handled correctly- see sales of the aforementioned ‘M.I.L.A’ enjoy the full benefit of her rising digital presence, with or without a hit single to its name!
Meanwhile, fans of Pop icon Beyonce will be pleased to learn that the singer’s 2011 release ‘Run The World (Girls)’ has now stormed past the 200 million VEVO streams point, bidding adieu to the 100 million arena and arriving at 222,703,069 million views garnered since May 11th 2011!
On iTunes USA, Mariah Carey‘s ‘Me.I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse’ spends its second week at #55, failing to crack the Top 40 on the ‘Billboard 200’, and now finds itself being outperformed by Ariana Grande‘s ‘Yours Truly’ which sits three spots above it at #52…despite dropping nine months earlier.
