Why no new single?

1000 X's & O's has been on the Urban AC chart for the past 16 weeks, and has spent most of that time at #12 or #13 (it's #13 today).

HitNRun phase 2 sounds like an album made to build on that. Instead weeks later there still hasn't been a new single released. Xtralovable would probably be my pick. Perhaps he's waiting for 1000 X's & O's to fall from where it is? It just seems odd to wait so long after the album was released to release a single.

I think there is no question that with a little push 1000 Hugs would have been a huge success. Just from the people searching for it online there is clearly a large demand for this song.

What's this chart based on? Airplay? Because it was never officially released as a single, right?

Xtralovable was already released on iTunes in 2011 (as a lot of the tracks) so if there was a single from HnR2 I don't think that would be it.

Big City might have the most hit potention of the new tracks?

This is being nitpicky, but the album has already had a few singles (Rock & Roll Love Affair, Screwdriver, Xtraloveable).

http://www.princevault.co...raloveable - did not chart

http://www.princevault.co...ove_Affair - hit #22 on UAC chart
http://www.princevault.co...crewdriver - did not chart

So in Prince's "Time Does Not Exist" fantasy, this album has been a success for several years already razz

I guess he's focused on assembling Phase Three, yes.
