As the writers behind “Freek” receive songwriter credit on “Type,” Pablo does earn a No. 1 as a songwriter, and his second on Rhythmic Songs overall. He previously claimed a No. 1 writing credit for his work on Ciara’s “Goodies,” on which he provided featured vocals. In addition, “Type” also gives Lil Jon an eighth No. 1 as a songwriter thanks to his efforts on “Freek,” while Quavo, best known as one-third of Migos, picks up his fifth.
“Type” also secures the fourth No. 1 for a rap song by a female act -- either solo or group -- in 2019, following Cardi B and Bruno Mars’ “Please Me,” City Girls’ “Act Up” and Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts.”
Saweetie first arrived on the Rhythmic Songs chart in March 2018 with her first single, “Icy Grl,” which climbed to No. 16 on the list that May. She followed with another No. 16 best last November for “Up Now,” her collaboration with London on Da Track that also featured G-Eazy and Rich the Kid. The rapper then claimed a No. 26 peak for a guest turn on Kid Ink’s “Yuso” in March 2019.
Beyond its Rhythmic Songs coronation, “Type” holds in the top 10 of the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart for a fourth nonconsecutive week despite a 7-9 slide. The track also retains its No. 3 peak on Rap Airplay for a second frame.
