In 2013, Dondria flew under the radar by avoiding music leaks and gossip, outside of her performance at So So Def 20th Anniversary concert. She almost let twelve months go by without shipping out new music for fans. This week, Phatfffat dropped her first holiday theme song entitled, "Ain't No Way." The record floated to the top of Singersroom's Most Popular R&B Singles of the Week.
Dondria avoided the cliché holiday ballads by weaving Christmas into a story about "no excuses" for her confidant to miss a rare moment with her. She will not settle for heartbreak on December 25th.
Along with the new track, the Jermaine Dupri protégée plans to release an EP in the beginning of 2014.
TGT's "Be My Holiday" earned the second slot on the Most Popular R&B Singles of the Week. Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese snuggle friendly holiday leak should be added to the holiday romance playlist. "Play out in the snow, cuddle by the fire / Take off all your clothes, I want you tonight / Be my holiday," the lyrics illustrate what the fellas have in mind.
For the fourth week in a row, Jessica Sanchez's "Lead Me Home," is on the top side of the chart. The eighteen year old former American Idol contestant’s single and performances have helped collect funding for the victims of Philippines typhoon.
Checkout the remainder of artists that earned spots on the Most Popular R&B Singles of the Week.
