John Legend‘s tender ballad “All of Me” has become his fourth top 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, jumping from #14 to #8 following his Grammy performance on Sunday.

According to the publication, the piano-driven song doubled its prior week’s sales total with 86,000 downloads, making it the best sales week for the track to date. It’s likely the sales surge for “All of Me” will be even greater since the latest sales week ended the same night as the Grammys.

It took Legend’s song 21 weeks to reach the top tier of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, making it the slowest-rising R&B song to crack the top ten since Frank Ocean‘s “Thinkin Bout You” took 30 weeks to do so in 2012.

Elsewhere on the chart, Eminem‘s “The Monster” with Rihanna claims the top spot while Pharrell‘s feel-good hit “Happy” sits at number three. Beyonce‘s “Drunk in Love” falls from #2 to #4 and Kid Ink‘s “Show Me” featuring Chris Brown rounds out the top five, climbing from #6 to #5 this week.
