So happy 😊 to see Raye getting a new peak with Prada! And with Tyla getting her 1st top 20!




Congratulations to Doja Cat 🐈 😻! And with a new entry at number 29 as well! But she faces tough competition next week with Kenya Grace!




Hoping either 'Strangers' or 'Prada' can hit #1 later in the month! 🤞
