Blinding Lights is listed as #1 on the US and UK R&B charts, so ridiculous  :ace:

It actually did amazing on Urban and Rhythmic radio. R&B songs are harder to break the top of Hot 100 so R&B def needs to be judged a bit differently when it comes to "flop" vs. "hit". I would definitely consider it as a success for PND.

That single was a big urban hit. I think she’ll gain more traction over some time.

I don't remember that song being THAT big (though it should've been). I'll take huge Spotify numbers over chart success tho haha

It makes it way up Urban radio, probably due to Ella Mai as she also assisted Usher with his song on Urban
