For the first time in more than a quarter of a century, a British singer has topped the US R&B chart.
Ella Mai, a 23-year-old from south London, is currently at number one with Boo’d Up, a soulful infatuation anthem she first released last year.
It makes her the first Brit to reach the summit since Lisa Stansfield hit number one with All Woman in 1992.
“1992, before I was born,” she tweeted after being told the news. “First in my lifetime. INSANE!”
Fellow Brits Charli XCX, Paul McCartney and Kyla have recently appeared as featured artists on US R&B number ones, but Ella Mai is the first to reach the peak as a lead artist for 26 years.
