Toni Braxton Ties For Most No. 1s On Adult R&B Airplay Chart
Snoop Dogg Announces INDOGGO Gin Now Has National Distribution
    Toni Braxton expands her recent winning streak on Bill- board’s Adult R&B Airplay chart and ties for the most No. 1s in the chart’s history as her track, “Gotta Move On,” featur- ing H.E.R., ascends from the runner-up spot on the chart dated Feb. 20. The single climbs with a 12% burst in plays in the week at the radio format ending Feb. 14, according to MRC Data, the largest gain among the chart’s 30 songs.
With “Move,” Braxton se- cures an 11th No. 1 and ties Ali- cia Keys for the most champs since the Adult R&B Airplay list began in 1993. Braxton’s re- turn to the winner’s circle is a long time coming: She previ- ously led or shared the rank among all artists for most No. 1s from 1996 until Keys sur-
passed her in 2008 and re- tained sole possession of the feat until now.
Back in September 2020, BLACK ENTERPRISE re- ported that multi-faceted en- tertainer and hip hop legend Calvin Broadus, better known as Snoop Dogg, had launched his own spirit, IN- DOGGO Gin.
Now after a successful lim- ited launch last fall, the cannabis connoisseur has an- nounced that his INDOGGO Gin is now available across the country. INDOGGO mixes seven premium botanicals in- fused with all-natural straw- berry flavor.
“I am so proud and hum-
bled by the response IN- DOGGO has received since its introduction,” said Snoop Dogg in a written statement. “I knew that we had created a great tasting, smooth gin, but to see the response on social media, and get the stamp of approval from my friend Martha Stewart—I knew we had a winner!”
INDOGGO is available in 750 ML and 50 ML bottles and has a suggested retail price of $29.99 and $1.99 at major retailers such as Total Wine and More, Walmart, Al- bertson’s, and Kroger.
