The King of Pop can’t be stopped! After taking the No. 3 spot on last week’s chart, “Loving You,” a track from his new posthumous album, Xscape, climbed to the top spot on Singersroom's Top 10 Streaming R&B Songs of The Week. The smooth and delicious record was written by MJ during the ‘Bad’ sessions in 1987, and revamped by Timbaland and Jerome Harmon.

Another legend and music trendsetter is making noise on this week’s chart. Dionne Warwick teams with hit singer-songwriter Ne-Yo for a remake of her 1964 ballad “A House Is Not A Home.” Recorded for a film of the same name, it’s great to see a veteran like Dionne partnering with a future legend like Ne-Yo, and it seems fans feel the same as the song debuts at No. 2 this week.

Mariah Carey rounds out the top three with her latest single “Thirsty,” featuring rapper Rich Homie Quan.

A spotlight for this week’s chart is newcomer Tink, who maintains the No. 7 spot with her Jeremih-assisted single “Don’t Tell Nobody.” While many veteran artists slipped off the chart, she continues to maintain steady streams.

Click below to see where Meelah, Jazmine Sullivan, Trey Songz, Danity Kane, and more landed on Singersroom's Top 10 Streaming R&B Songs of The Week.

Former 702 lead singer Meelah is ensuring her return to music is a solid one. Not only is she one of the newest cast members of "R&B Divas: ATL," she also hooks up with former flame Musiq Soulchild for the velvety, sexy duet "Give To You," which puts a slick spin on ODB's "Baby I Got Your Money."

Jazmine Sullivan - Dumb ft. Meek Mill

Jazmine Sullivan – Dumb ft. Meek Mill

In late March (2014), she confirmed the upcoming release of her third studio album Reality Show during a sold-out comeback show at the KOKO Theater in London, and now we have new heat. Featuring fellow Philly artist Meek Mill, this one’s called “Dumb” where, over the Key Wane-produced militant haunting track, Jaz calls a beau less than smart for doing her wrong.

Trey Songz - Foreign

Trey Songz – Foreign

Trey Songz's album Trigga has become available for pre-order on iTunes, and when fans purchase, they’re treated to two other album cuts, the club-friendly "Foreign" and the radio-friendly "Change Your Mind."

On “Foreign,” Trey sings about having the hots for an exotic foreign beauty.

Tink - Dont Tell Nobody ft. Jeremih

Tink – Dont Tell Nobody ft. Jeremih

With Timbaland on board, you’ll probably be hearing much more from the Chicago artist, and it begins here, with fellow Chicagoan Jeremih on “Don’t Tell Nobody.” The cut has Tink reprimanding her cheating dude (played by Jeremih), and he doesn’t deny the claims, all he asks is that she doesn’t spill the beans.

K. Michelle & Keyshia Cole - Loyal (Deez N*ggaz Remix)

Keyshia Cole vented her frustrations over Chris Brown's track "Loyal," and now K. Michelle adds her vocals and two cents to the situation. “Why you got an attitude? / Girl that’s everybody’s dude,” she answers to Cole’s gripe that "these n*ggaz ain’t loyal."

Danity Kane - Lemonade ft. Tyga

Danity Kane is officially back, and for those who don’t like that idea, they offer a swig of "Lemonade" to quench their haters' thirst.

Produced by The Stereotypes (“Damaged”), the urban-tinged track "Lemonade" samples The Clipse's, choppy percussion of the Neptune’s-produced "Grindin" and features L.A. rhymer Tyga.

Gift Colyer - Real Hitta

Gift Colyer – Real Hitta

Gift Colyer is here to share his version of R&B music. With a name so humbly wrapped in southern Creole richness, you'll find yourself willing to embrace his perfect R&B notes. "Real Hitta" has that west coast feel that makes you want to jump in your low rider and cruise with your real hittas.
