Love Yourself :
9th most added on Urban with 7 new adds
1st most added on Urban AC with 11 new adds (Pretty much a monster there)
I feel like it's not long before she enters the top 50 on Urban (#2 taking off today)
She's currently #23 on UAC.

Entered the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart @ number 49.

U + ME :
Currently 25(27) on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart
#5 on Urban AC

LY is now #45 on urban stations !
It's flopping enormously on iTunes though, not a good choice of single, the public is clearly showing no interest in that one.

U+ME is 20(25) on the R&B/Hip-Hop Aiplay chart !

It wasn't meant to be a single. It's a album filler. But if the entire song sounded like the intro... it would've been EPIC.

Love Yourself is Mary's 2nd most played song on Spotity. It's averaging over 60,000 spins a day. U+Me is averaging 40,000 spins a day and is her 3rd most played song on Spotify. TOI is averaging 25,000 spins a day, on Spotify. But of course, Hurricane Family Affair is averaging over 100,000 spins a day and none of her singles this era has been able to top it. Lol.

I thought it was interesting to see LY climb to #2 on Spotify. I thought it was going to lag.

U+Me is #2 on UAC radio. Should go to #1 tomorrow or Friday.

I need another UAC song. SO we can get 3 No.1 hits from that chart. I actually wouldn't mind 4 No.1's on UAC radio. I have a feeling she can comfortable push 500K-1million with 4 No.1 hits on that chart.

I have NO hope for a Hot 100 entry. LOL. Radio is even treating Mariah like trash.
They aren't treating black women in 40s right. That's just that.

Mary's actually possible of getting a Hot 100 entry, it just really DEPENDS. I think as a feature.

I'm thinking 70-80K. There is hyper, amongst her core audience, which is black women. If you aren't a black women and aren't around them, there's a chance you don't hear of the hype surrounding this album. I see it on twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Am rooting for this album. Am not a fan of love yourself to be honest but I sure rinsed U + Me on the plane when I was coming back from holiday. The lyrics, melody and just everything of this song is just to real.

Am hoping U + Me goes no.1 on US Adult R&B songs.
