The new leader gives Megan Thee Stallion a third No. 1 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop tally. The Houston rapper first led with “Savage,” featuring Beyonce, for four weeks last year and followed with the one-week champ “Body” in February.
Featured artist DaBaby, meanwhile, scores his sixth chart-topper on the radio ranking as “Cry Baby” joins the below crew:
Song Title, Artist (if other than DaBaby), Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
“Suge,” six, June 22, 2019
“BOP,” four, Jan. 25, 2020
“What’s Poppin,” Jack Harlow featuring DaBaby, Tory Lanez & Lil Wayne, two, Aug. 15, 2020
“Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, three, July 25, 2020
“For the Night,” Pop Smoke featuring DaBaby & Lil Baby, four, Jan. 23, 2021
“Cry Baby,” Megan Thee Stallion featuring DaBaby, one, April 17, 2021
“Cry Baby” also atones for a near-miss for the rappers too. Their previous collaboration, “Cash Shit,” stopped at No. 2 in 2019.
Beyond Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, “Cry Baby” reaches a new peak of No. 3 on both the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and Rap Airplay charts. On the former, which ranks songs by audience impressions from both mainstream and adult stations at the format, the single jumps from No. 7 thanks to a 9% bump to 17.9 million in audience in the week. On the latter, “Cry Baby” climbs 6-3 through an 8% improvement in audience.
