H.E.R. Hits the Hot 100 High of Her Career Thanks to Jhené Aiko’s ‘B.S.’

Published: Wednesday 18th Mar 2020 by Rashad

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.

Note:  To date, Jhené’s highest placement on the Hot 100 overall remains her guest role on Omarion’s 2014 hit, ‘Post To Be,’ which peaked at #13 the next year.  Conversely, H.E.R.’s 2019 hit, ‘Slide’ – which peaked at #52 – is her highest appearance as a lead act.

      ha I see the subtle shade. and I kinda agree! H.E.R. is super talented but so is Jhené and now it’s time the awards start showing her some love too.

    No hype
    No free promo and shout outs from 13738275 different celebrities on Instagram and Twitter
    No rolling stone magazine cover

    Talent will always win.

    All this hype the black community is giving talentless normani, if we gave half of that hype to h.e.r she will be as big as billie ellish by now.
    Think about it

    H.e.r is dark skin and pretty
    Can sing
    Can write
    Can play multiple instruments

    And she’s also hungry for it. She attends every black award show she’s nominated for unlike normani who thinks the soul train music awards are beneath her.

    Black people pls support real talent.

    • Beyonce Knows March 18, 2020

      Lil Uzi broke all of theirs tbh. But if you’re talking about everyone with a vag I understand

  4. Beyonce Knows March 18, 2020

    I see Brandy and Monica boy is mine 1998 success in their future with this song.

  5. Bebo p. March 18, 2020

    Love that song with HER hope is a top 10

  6. RightRound March 18, 2020

    This song is okay, but it’s jacked. See Ida Divine – Infinity released early 2019. The song has more soul to it tbh.

  7. Nicky March 18, 2020

    Camicky has 10x more budget than HER and Jhené and they crush her ??????

    The “Queen of Spotify” Camicky cant even do 82K SPS and Jhené did 100k effortlessly.


    This is one of the reasons Camicky was dropped from the label. She’s NAWT a Star.

    ???????????. Poor Camicky

  8. Nicky March 18, 2020

    Yes We’re going to believe Camicky is worth $20M. ??????

    After being dropped from the label. ?????????

      Honey not everybody is broke like brokemani

      No hit song
      No album
      No headline tour
      No movie role

      Normani is feeding herself and her family with that little money Rihanna is paying her to model strippèr underwear.
      That’s why normani keeps booking shìtty gigs, like McDonald’s and streamy awards. Cause she needs money so bad.

      Camila can never relate
      Debut number 1 album platinum

      2nd album certified gold, more than 800k sold so far, will be platinum before the end of the year

      2 number 1’s, wrote and sang both number 1s Havana- diamond certified.
      Havana-1.4 billion streams
      Seniorita-1.3 billion streams

      1st headlining tour was successful.
      2nd headlining tour, an arena tour almost sold out

      Cinderella movie in 2021
      Cinderella soundtrack
      Lucrative loreal Paris cosmetic contract.
      My oh my eligible for platinum in the USA.

      Camila is loaded.
      Camila can buy normani 6 times over and change will still remain. Lol
      She is generating revenue unlike normani who is wasting her record labels resources.

      That’s why the record label have put normani on the back burner and are focusing on doja cat.
      Nobody is gonna keep investing in a flop like normani.
