Lizzo, "Good As Hell"

Lizzo locks up her second top 10 hit on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as “Good As Hell” rises 12-10 on the list dated Oct. 26.

“Good” ascends with the chart’s Airplay Gainer honor, a weekly distinction awarded to the song with the strongest growth in radio airplay each. The single shoots 28-16 on the all-genre Radio Songs chart, pulling 43.1 million in audience in the week ending Oct. 20, according to Nielsen Music, up 35% from the previous week.

Elsewhere, the track rebounds 3-2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart, despite a 7% fall to 12,000 downloads sold in the week ending Oct. 17, per Nielsen Music. “Good” also makes a 6-3 jump on R&B Streaming Songs thanks to an 8% boost to 13.2 million streams in the same period.

As “Good” gains, Lizzo bookends the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart’s top 10 as her “Truth Hurts” retains the No. 1 rank for an eighth straight week. The latter also wins a seventh term atop the Billboard Hot 100, matching the longest stay at the summit for rap songs by female artists. “Good,” meanwhile, breaks new ground as it reaches the top 20 for the first time through a 24-20 hike.

Like “Truth,” Lizzo’s latest hit took a scenic route to success. “Good” was released in 2016 on the soundtrack to the film Barbershop: The Next Cut and on Lizzo’s EP Coconut Oil. Renewed interest around the song has also revived Oil, which reached a new peak of No. 30 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums in September, well ahead of its No. 44 peak in 2016.

Beyond its new peaks on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and the Hot 100, “Good” also makes forward progress on the Pop Songs airplay chart (up 15-10), the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart (19-18),  and debuts on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart (No. 39).
