Beyoncé also tallied four No. 1s in 1998-2000 as part of the group Destiny's Child before reigning for the first time as a soloist with "Crazy in Love," featuring Jay Z, in 2003.

It jumps 52 percent in domestic streams (from 7 to 11 million -- fitting, given its title) in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music. It leaps 12-2 on Streaming Songs, her highest appearance since "Drunk In Love," featuring Jay Z, spent four weeks atop the two-year old chart in February.

"It's a very lyrical album," the group's RZA said at a Nov. 3 listening session, "a lot of stories and vignettes of stories you'll hear. And I think you'll get a taste of New York flavor. You will hear some maturity in our thinking process."

'Coco' Goes Top 10: Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs welcomes a new member to its top 10 as O.T. Genasis hops 11-7 with his first charting single "Coco."

At radio, the song holds its peak at No. 36 on the overall Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart (up 7 percent in airplay in the week ending Dec. 9). It also reaches a new peak on Rap Airplay, stepping 19-17 in its fourth week.
Big Sean's Newest No. 1: Although Big Sean's "I Don't F**k With You" slips out of the top slot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (falling 2-1), it attains a new No. 1 achievement: it rises 2-1 on Rhythmic airplay. The song features E-40 and is the third No. 1 on the tally for Sean.
