Brice banks his seventh No. 1.

Lee Brice notches his seventh No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, as "One of Them Girls" rises 2-1 on the tally (dated Oct. 3), up 4% to 35 million in audience, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The track, which Brice wrote with Dallas Davidson, Ashley Gorley and Ben Johnson, is the lead single from Brice's forthcoming fifth full-length, Hey World.

"This song was embraced by both fans and radio from the get-go and it has flown," Brice tells Billboard. "We felt there was something special about it the night we wrote it and to see how it has resonated is such a blessing and humbling. We are over the moon."

Brice banks his third consecutive Country Airplay No. 1, following his Carly Pearce duet "I Hope You're Happy Now," which led for a week in June, and "Rumor," which reigned for a frame in July 2019. Brice first topped the chart with "A Woman Like You" for a week in April 2012.

On the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart, "One" ranks at No. 3 after reaching No. 2. It drew 9.8 million streams (up 4%) and sold 5,000 downloads (up 6%) in the tracking week.

HE'S 'USED TO' IT Plus, Russell Dickerson adds his fourth straight career-opening Country Airplay top 10, as "Love You Like I Used To" pushes 11-9 (19.6 million, up 10%).

His first three entries each led the list: "Yours" (for two weeks starting in January 2018), "Blue Tacoma" (one week, October 2018) and "Every Little Thing" (one, November 2019).
