R&B singer Angie Stone and former member of the rap group Sequence earns her highest-charting set since 2007 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (chart dated Nov. 28), as Dream debuts at No. 3 with 9,000 sold in the week ending Nov. 12, according to Nielsen Music.
It’s her best rank since her fourth studio effort, The Art of Love & War, crowned the chart for one week in 2007 (16,000 first-week sales). Dream’s lead single “2 Bad Habits” slides two spots from its peak (20-22) on Adult R&B Songs, due to an 8 percent dip in plays at the format (week ending Nov. 15).
Stone has logged a total of 17 tracks on that airplay chart, starting with “No More Rain (In This Cloud),” which spent 10 weeks at No. 1 (peaking in 1999). Her only other No. 1 came in 2007 when “Baby,” featuring Betty Wright, crowned the list for one week.
