If its commercial performance is anything to judge by, the competition is learning the hard way that H.E.R.’s ‘Damage’ is living up to its title on the Billboard charts.
See what we mean inside:
With its #44 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 (to date), the Cardiak-produced song’s become her highest charting solo hit yet. And while its impact there may seem modest to some, its genre-specific doings are certainly nothing to shake a stick at.
18 weeks after premiering on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, H.E.R.’s ‘Damage’ has darted to the tally’s top spot – marking a first for the GRAMMY winner. Her previous high on this specific listing was the #3 peak of 2019’s ‘Slide’ (featuring YG).
Elsewhere over her short, but storied career, H.E.R. has also collected five chart-toppers on the Adult R&B Songs chart: 2017’s ‘Best Part’ with Daniel Caesar, 2018’s ‘Focus,’ 2020’s ‘Make the Most’ alongside Lonr., ‘Gotta Move On’ alongside Toni Braxton, and ‘Slow Down’ alongside Skip Marley.
See who joins her in the top 10 on this week’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.
