Watch: H.E.R. Rocks ‘Kimmel’ With ‘Damage’ Live as Song Soars to #1 at R&B iTunes

Published: Wednesday 28th Oct 2020 by Rashad

H.E.R. fans have seen a lot of the GRAMMY winner on TV over the last week as she’s moving full speed ahead in promotion of her latest two singles, ‘Damage’ and ‘Hold On.’

After rocking the October 24 episode of ‘SNL’ with live renditions of the two songs (click here to read), the 23-year-old later flexed her rap skills alongside Brandy, Erykah Badu, and Teyana Taylor as part of the ‘Ladies First’ R&B cypher at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards.

As if that wasn’t enough, she followed the appearance by taking to the latest episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’  Serving as Tuesday night’s musical guest (October 27), H.E.R. cranked out another stunning rendition of ‘Damage.’

See it inside:

The exposure is undoubtedly helping the song live up to its namesake on iTunes real-time sales chart.

As of time reported, ‘Damage’ – positioned at #5 – sits as the only R&B song in the tally’s top 10.  What’s more, it reigns atop the R&B sales chart and is followed closely by its successor, ‘Hold On,’ at #3.

The sales not only act as indication of the buzz being built for the songs’ forthcoming parent album, but – when coupled with radio airplay and streams – should also spell handsomely for their expected Billboard Hot 100 premiere next week.

    I’m not surprised. I love the 80s samples and inspired sounds that have come from Usher, H.E.R. and Ne-Yo this year. It will take a more collective effort to give r&b the life it used to have, but this is a good start.
