The new champ dethrones Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open” after an 18-week domination.
Moneybagg Yo caps a steady radio rise in the past year with his first No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart as “Wockesha” advances from No. 3 to lead the list dated Aug. 28. The single becomes the format’s most-heard song in the week ending Aug. 22, according to MRC Data, through an 18.6 million audience total, an 8% improvement from the prior week.
In addition to its meaning for Moneybagg Yo’s career, “Wockesha” also completes a feat that’s proven impossible in the past four months: overtaking Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open.” That release, the debut offering of the Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak duo, had reigned for the previous 18 consecutive weeks, the fourth-longest stretch since the chart began in 1992. “Door” falls to the runner-up slot for the first time since the chart dated April 17 as it slips 5% to 17.5 million in audience.
