Kincaid lit up the charts this past holiday season with his single “This Christmas (*Mistletoe)”—an R&B-driven remake of Donny Hathaway’s Christmas classic. The feel-good song was a top track on Sounds of Christmas–-an online Christmas station drawing more than 5 million listeners. It also held in the Top 20 Mediabase Adult Contemporary Christmas Chart for four straight weeks.
The holiday track, which features vocals by Cuba Gooding, Sr. of the famed soul group The Main Ingredient, also held in the Top 20 on the main Mediabase AC Chart for several weeks putting Kincaid as the only independent artist in company with music superstars on the chart such as Rod Stewart, Colbie Caillat, Lady Antebellum, Michael Bublé, Cee Lo Green, Richard Marx and Train.
Kincaid was the very first independent artist of 2012 to crack the Top Ten of the FMQB AC40 Chart with his version of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine.” He followed that by hitting the #1 Most Added List on the FMQB AC Add Board with an original song, “Wonderful Day,” which charted all the way up to Number Four on the Hot AC Chart.
