Lil Durk also earns his first radio chart champs with "Laugh Now Cry Later."
Drake’s longstanding domination on R&B/hip-hop radio keeps rolling on as the superstar’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk, climbs 2-1 to lead Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart dated Oct. 3. The single ascends with an 18% surge to 23.5 million in format audience in the week ending Sept. 27, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
“Laugh” secures Drake’s record-extending 27th No. 1 on the list since its 1992 creation, pushing him further ahead of runner-up Usher, who owns 15. Lil Durk, meanwhile, collects his first leader. He easily outdoes his previous best appearances, twin No. 49 showings for 2015’s “Like Me,” featuring Jeremih, and the following year’s “Money Walk,” featuring Yo Gotti.
