Rising R&B star The Bonfyre earns her second No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs airplay chart as “U Say,” featuring 6lack, ascends from the runner-up rank on the list dated Feb. 8. The collaboration leads the list in its 28th week on the chart and picks up an 11% boost in plays at the radio format in the week ending Feb. 2, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The Bonfyre, born Chelsey LaRue, previously topped Adult R&B Songs with her first entry, “Automatic,” for four weeks in March-April 2019. With “Automatic” and “U Say,” the R&B singer becomes the first act to send her first two chart entries to the summit since Queen Naija reigned with the five-week leader “Medicine” in December 2018-January 2019 and followed with “Karma” in May 2019. The Bonfyre is signed to L.A. Reid’s HITCO label through Raphael Saddiq’s Toler Heights imprint.
