Last week, Atlanta hitman Future announced that he changed the title of his upcoming album from “Future Hendrix” to “Honest,” unleashing its Metro Boomin and DJ Spinz-produced title track. In only three days of airplay, the song reached nearly 700,000 listeners across 34 stations, according to Nielsen BDS. Future’s last top 10 hit as a lead artist on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs was “Turn On The Lights” which peaked at No. 2 in October, 2012. Can “Honest” bring him back into the top 10 before the album’s Nov. 26 release date?
After performing the song live on “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” among other television shows, John Legend released the studio version of “All of Me” last week. The piano-driven ballad is dedicated to Legend’s fiancé, model Chrissy Teigen, and will be featured on his upcoming “Love in the Future” album, due September 3rd. All of Legend’s solo studio albums – “Get Lifted” (2005), “Once Again” (2006) and “Evolver” (2008) – have reached No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
