Its rise makes DaBaby the latest act to replace himself at the summit.
Jack Harlow collects his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart (dated July 18) as “Whats Poppin,” featuring DaBaby, Tory Lanez and Lil Wayne, ascends from the second-place spot. The song, boosted by a remix released June 24 that added the guest-star trio, climbed 12% in plays at the radio format in the week ending July 12, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Notably, “Poppin” evicts DaBaby’s own “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, from the Rhythmic Songs summit after the latter’s two-week reign. With the switch, DaBaby becomes the first artist to string successive No. 1s since Cardi B’s “Be Careful” ceded the throne to “I Like It,” her collaboration with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, in 2018.
Beyond the two recent champs, DaBaby owns a third career No. 1 on Rhythmic Songs through a featured turn on Post Malone’s “Enemies.” The single, from Post’s Hollywood’s Bleeding album, led for two weeks in 2019.
