Heavy D’s “Now That We Found Love” Returns to the Billboard Charts

In the wake of his untimely death on November 8, Heavy D is making a return to the Billboard charts.

Heavy D & the Boyz’ “Now That We Found Love” debuted at No. 20 on Billboard’s Rap Digital Songs chart last week with 18,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Soundscan. Just the week before the Overweight Lover’s passing, the song had shifted less than 1,000 downloads. The track’s accompanying video concurrently hit the top of the Yahoo! Videos list with 73,000 streams.

After reaching No. 11, “Now That We Found Love” ended its run on the Billboard Hot 100 chart exactly 20 years ago last week. Still, the song remains Heavy D’s highest-peaking hit on the Hot 100 on which he notched four other hits through 1995. On the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Heav had 14 entries between 1986 and 1994.

Meanwhile, Heavy D’s recently-released “Love Opus” album registered its best sales week, falling just under the 75-slot on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Heav’s greatest hits compilation, Heavy Hitz, entered at No. 11 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Catalog Albums chart.

Heavy D passed away earlier this month after having breathing troubles. A two-day funeral was held last week in his hometown of Mount Vernon, New York.—Gina Montana
