Freddie Jackson became the first artist in more than 26 years to succeed himself at No. 1 on the black (formerly rhythm & blues) chart, when "Tasty Love" took the top spot from "A Little Bit More" in November, 1986. The last artist to do the trick? Dinah Washington, who scored in July, 1960--when Freddie was all of nine months old.
