H.E.R. is almost assured of hitting the number-one spot on R&B radio with â€œDamageâ€ in the coming week. Before she does, the multi-awarded musician is celebrating the platinum success of the Herb Alpert-sampled track. It has now sold more than one million equivalent digital units in the United States.
The achievements of â€œDamageâ€ date back to March when it peaked at the top position on urban radio. It marked her first solo track to secure this feat.
H.E.R., who won an Oscar for â€œFight for Youâ€ this spring, performed a stirring rendition of the newly platinum song at the 20th anniversary Honda Civic Tour. Rated R&B premiered the stellar performance, which was enclosed with â€œremixâ€ details of a second tour stop.
On the subject of her much-anticipated debut album Back on My Mind, itâ€™s slated to arrive later this year via MBK Entertainment/RCA Records. She dropped the sensual video for L.P.â€™s Chris Brown-featured single â€œCome Through.â€
Additional album collaborators include R&B avengers Dallas Austin, Jermaine Dupri, and Bryan-Michael Cox, all of which were seen in the studio with H.E.R. earlier this year.
