    Two black women on a song can do well.

    Some of those songs on the second album were not it tho sis, no wonder the blacklash was swift and vast. So when IYBT came out, millions upon millions of afros, dreadlocks and weaves were scalped, buried and never seen again.

    The thing is, it appeared on 3 CDs at the same time and still sold a ton of singles. I am not sure, why radio denied it its ultimate #1 reign, but two black ladies on a track must have been too much for many.

    I had to buy 2 copies of #1's bc after the initial release, my first copy was worn out due to me consistently playing this one track which also happens to be my alltime most played tune ever.

    If properly counted, I am convinced that I have played the song between 1,000,000 and 1,500,000 times. It's just the right kind of inspirational music and a song featuring my 2 alltime favs is automatically something that I cannot treat in a sane way.

    In conclusion, people who are shading When You Believe are most likely QAnon because I have no idea how anyone could not see the presence of a higher being / power in this vocal showcase.

    It's the greatest moment in music history and the sooner people acknowledge that, the better the chances that Karma won't get you.

    So, worship is the only solution.
    If radio was against having two black women on the same song, don’t you think Karen radio would have been where it suffered the most?

    Hot 100: #15
    Chocolate Radio: #33
    Mainstream Radio: #35
    Karen Radio: #3

    Ironically, it still holds the record for the most added song on all of radio in a week in history. But at least it became a cute lil’ top 10 in aRatchet’s Hole.

    The fact that the song is called 'Check On It' when she never sings those words (apart from the background singing towards the end) in it .

    Do you know this, aRatchet? It’s probably one of the most timeless chocolate classiks ever, even you have probably heard the hook a few times in passing. If not, then definitely BeeBoy It missed your hole completely and only made #36 in mine, but 80s rap songs tend to become more lauded over time. It finally became a top 10 in both our holes in 2010 when the BEPs sampled it on Rock That Body.

    an academy award winning, legendary song which is also currently charting on the billboard gospel songs chart (in fact, it's always charting). that is what legendry can do.

    it was even a top 10 in Germany!

    chartrun: 20 - 16 - 12 - 10 - 9 - 9 - 10 - 10 - 8 - 11 - 16 - 15 - 17 - 20 - 24 - 25 - 32 - 41 - 55 - 75

    This album has some decent tracks though, as well as some rubbish but worth a listen for sure.

    She feels like Rihanna & Dua hybrid

    All I know is they mention Kween a lot on that show, no wonder it has so much acclaim.

    Never heard of her

    Meanwhile stream Effortlessly by Madison Beer

    She sounds so like Ariana tonally on certain parts of this.
