R&B hitmaker Robin Thicke collects his sixth No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart as “Look Easy” advances from No. 3 to lead the list dated Aug. 21. The single surged by 21% in weekly plays -- the largest percentage gain among the chart’s 30 titles -- to become the most played-song on monitored U.S. adult R&B radio stations in the week ending Aug. 15, according to MRC Data.
Thicke’s latest champ arrives at the summit in its 26th week on the list. The tune debuted on the chart dated Feb. 27 and began a gradual but consistent trek toward the top slot. Prior to its coronation week, “Easy” had logged nearly half its chart journey -- 12 weeks -- within the top 10.
