Babyface‘s “As a Matter of Fact” has topped Billboard‘s Adult R&B Airplay chart, earning the legend his sixth chart-topper.
This is the first time in 26 years that Babyface has ruled the Adult R&B Airplay chart without any other credited artists. “As a Matter of Fact” rose to the top spot from No. 3. Previously, the singer led on his own with “Every Time I Close My Eyes” in 1997.
“I am grateful and blessed to have another [No. 1] song on the Billboard [Adult] R&B radio chart as a solo artist after 26 years,” Babyface told Billboard. “I am thankful to still be here and do what I love – creating music. It will always come back to the music. Thanks to my fans and my team!”
