By sending her first three Adult R&B Songs appearances to No. 1, Queen Naija joins the ranks of Toni Braxton and Daniel Caesar as the only acts to accomplish the feat. Braxton began her chart run with the four-week leader “Another Sad Love Song” and two-week No. 1 “Breathe Again,” both in 1993, and the following year’s “Seven Whole Days,” which reigned for six frames.
Caesar, meanwhile, started with “Get You,” featuring Kali Uchis, and “Best Part,” featuring H.E.R., which topped the list for one and four weeks, respectively. His next visit came through the Brandy collaboration “Love Again,” a two-week champ in November 2019.
In addition to its Adult R&B victory, “Butterflies Pt. 2” ascends 18-13 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. There, it improves 12% to 8.6 million in format audience in the week ending Nov. 12.
“Butterflies Pt. 2” appears on Naija’s latest studio album, Missunderstood, which debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B Albums chart last week. In its second frame, the album slips to No. 2.
