Earth, Wind & Fire Return to Adult R&B Airplay Top 10 for First Time in 28 Years

For Lucky Daye, “Love” gives the singer his second top 10, following his debut release, “Roll Some Mo,” a No. 8 success in 2019.

The new single also shoots into the top 10 in just its fourth week on the list, only the fifth of 32 top 10 hits this year to do so in under a month. It joins two Silk Sonic singles, “Leave the Door Open” and “Skate,” which needed two and three weeks, respectively, and matches Tank’s “Can’t Let It Show” and D-Nice’s “No Plans for Love,” featuring Ne-Yo and Kent Jones.

Beyond Earth, Wind & Fire, “You Want My Love” features behind-the-scenes involvement from another R&B legend, Babyface, who has co-writer and co-producer credits. As a writer, Babyface nabs his second top 10 of the year, following “He Don’t Know Nothin Bout It,” his collaboration with Jam x Lewis. On the production side, Babyface wraps an eight-year break, since “Hurt You,” his duet with Toni Braxton, reached the top 10 in September 2013 on its way to four weeks at No. 1 beginning that December.

Elsewhere, “You Want My Love” darts 31-24 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, which measures audience totals across both adult-leaning and mainstream-oriented stations. There, the single picked up 48% in audience, to 4.9 million in the week ending Sept. 12. The move gives the group its second top 25 appearance, after “Sunday Morning” and its No. 20 best showing.
