Renaissance is only Platinum and currently #13 on BB200. What a “Queen of Christ” 💀
. Mommy you a Deadbeat crackhead
It’s definitely his best single.
Should have been bigger than “Adorn”.
He is the only artist who can stop Bruno Mars rip off music from annoying everybody.
No one could stop I Look To You from flopping or Whitney from running back to the crack
Man STFU. I Look To You debuted at #1 in 2009 and was ahead of Trey Song. And Miley Cyrus who were both hot at the time. People say anything, I swear. Lol
You dumb cunnttt! #1 doesn’t mean it didn’t flop. The total SALES show that it DID.
Platinum after an entire 14 YEARS 💀
Platinum 26 years after her debut!!! Not MANY can say the same hater
No Whitney was never on crack Yes ..I look to you debuted at #1 ..
Yet still only Platinum after 14 years! Even Renaissance is already Platinum lol
She was still going platinum 26 years into her career. So what???
It only went Platinum after her death 💀

Now Miguel needs to shut Bruno Mars rip off music up….he can do it….
