Singer Carlene Davis and her daughter Naomi Cowan pulled off a rare feat last week when they made the influential Foundation Radio Network Chart in New York City. Davis moved from number four to two with Pray For You , which features Marion Hall, while Cowan makes the table for the first time with Paradise Plum, which entered at number 10.

Clinton Lindsay, who has compiled the chart for 40 years, said artistes and their children have made his list before, but not a mother and daughter. The first time it was done came in 1990 with Who Colt The Game by Rita Marley and Stephen Marley; 18 years later, Jimmy Riley and Tarrus Riley entered with Pull Up Selector.

Pray For You is from Davis's new album which is scheduled for release this year. Paradise Plum was co-written by Cowan and Sarah Couch, daughter of singer Suzanne Couch who died in July.

Paradise Plum is part of the nine-track mixtape of the same name.
