Co-written by MJB along with Jazmine Sullivan, the song spent 16 weeks at #1 on the Urban AC Chart, marking her longest running #1 single on that chart. What’s more, “Thick Of It” climbed to #1 faster than any other song since 1995, when Whitney Houston’s “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” reached No. 1 in its second week. Only three songs have ever reached No. 1 in 4 weeks or less (including “Exhale”). “U + ME (Love Lesson)” is currently #6 on the Urban AC Chart.
