RIAA: Chloe Bailey Bags First GOLD-Certified Solo Hit with ‘Have Mercy’

Published: Friday 21st Jan 2022 by Rashad

Chloe Bailey‘s official debut solo single, ‘Have Mercy,’ has her competitors still saying just that over four months after its debut.

Not only a mainstay in the top 10 of R&B charts since its September unveiling, the Murda Beatz-produced bop is also one of the year’s most enduring Urban hits on Pop charts – notching its 18th week of placement on the tally this week.

Its ongoing success got the ultimate toast recently, however, when the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) took to press to announce the tune had become her first solo certified hit.

More inside:

As fans of the burgeoning diva anxiously await her solo debut album, its lead single – ‘Have Mercy’ – is racking up major love on streaming and digital download outlets.

So much so, the RIAA’s reported the song crossed its threshold for Gold status (meaning it’s sold the equivalence of 500,000 units in the United States alone).

While the award comes as Chloe’s first as a solo act, she’s no stranger to recognition from the RIAA.  As reported here, she previously collected two plaques from the organization (a Gold and Platinum award) – both bestowed to the 2020 hit ‘Do It‘ performed with her sister as part of the group Chloe x Halle.

      They played Wild side on radio because of Cardi. Fans streaming wild side because of Cardi. The song got social media attention because of Cardi was promoting online.

        LOL the lies. Wild Side is simply a BOP. Y’all hate to see it. No matter how you shuffle it, Normani got a Platinum HIT record 💅

      • True Tea January 22, 2022



        And the thing is Normani is Platinum strictly off a Urban radio which they say doesn’t matter.

        All of these R&B artists going Platinum OR multi Platinum without even reaching Top 10 Billboard.

      Mean as hell! You should be ashamed fat shaming someone

  2. Uggh January 21, 2022

    Go gurl! Y’all remember this is a solo hit so unlike that cardi b featuring Normani song… just saying

    I’d be curious how many humans went and spent their money, and actually purchased the song.

  4. Wild*Side January 21, 2022

    Smoke & mirrors. Song was a humongous flop.

  5. Monica Stan January 21, 2022

  6. Truth January 22, 2022

    This good congrats to her! She’s now building a fan base this is good for her and no features on the song gotta give her kudos

    • Bob January 22, 2022

      No features? She’s on Beyoncé’s recorded label. That’s the biggest feature in the world.

  8. UHoesFunny January 22, 2022

    QUEEN s***, this is good for a new solo artist. This standard that y’all expect everyone to go DIAMOND from their first single is absurd 😂 and shows how stupid everyone here really is…

    it’s not an “award”…it’s merely a statement of a fact 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
