As we reported here, Jhené Aiko‘s third album, ‘Chilombo,‘ entered the Billboard 200 this week at #2 thanks to a whopping 152,000 units shifted its first week.
The premiere position not only came as a personal best for the 32-year-old, but the units sold are the highest of her career to date. Those figures were undoubtedly bolstered by tunes on the project’s critically acclaimed tracklist, which feature some of today’s biggest Urban movers and shakers including Nas, John Legend, Ty Dolla $ign, Future, Miguel, and H.E.R.
Pertaining to the latter (born Gabriella Wilson), peruse of the Hot 100 this week saw ‘B.S.’ – her guest appearance on ‘Chilombo’ – make a top 30 debut. A personal best for the ‘Hard Place’ singer, look below to see how she and Jhené gained a win this week:
As we previously reported, ‘B.S.’ – the H.E.R. and Jhené duet found aboard the latter’s latest album – debuted within the Hot 100’s top 30 this week at #24. In addition to being the only previously unreleased offering from ‘Chilombo’ to chart, it’s also outpaced all of the set’s singles.
A clear fan favorite, the Fisticuffs-produced bop led other album cuts ‘P*ssy Fairy’ (#40), ‘Happiness Over Everything’ (#65), ‘Triggered’ (#87), and ‘None of Your Concern’ (#93) on this week’s tally.
More importantly, ‘B.S.’ comes as a career milestone for both artists as it marks their highest placement on the Hot 100 respectively. While Aiko can claim the #24 hit as her highest as a leading act on the tally, Wilson can boast the appearance as her highest overall.
