Meanwhile, Eminem & Gwen Stefani collabo "Kings Never Die" debuts.
At the top of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, The Weeknd notches his second No. 1 as “Can’t Feel My Face” steps 2-1 on the chart dated Aug. 1. It follows his first chart-topper, "Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)," which spent two weeks atop the list earlier this year.
On-air, "Can't Feel My Face" concurrently climbs 3-1 on the Rhythmic Songs chart -- taking Greatest Gainer honors -- locking in the singer’s third No. 1 at the format. All three chart-toppers were achieved in 2015; first alongside Ariana Grande on “Love Me Harder” (Jan. 5 peak), and next with “Earned It” (May 2).
Eminem and Gwen Stefani Team Up: Eminem scores his 55th entry on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs as “Kings Never Die,” featuring Gwen Stefani (her sixth charting hit), lands at No. 23. The track comes from the soundtrack of the Jake Gyllenhaal boxing flick Southpaw, released July 24. “Kings” sold 35,000 downloads in its first week (ending July 16, according to Nielsen Music). 1.2 million domestic streams aid in its arrival, with 49 percent stemming from Spotify plays. The buzz around the track’s release spurs Eminem’s 42-34 jump on the Billboard Artist 100.
Tyrese Soars: Meanwhile, Tyrese leaps 50-32 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with “Shame,” from his Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums-crowning set, Black Rose. The track moved 6,000 digital downloads (a 14 percent climb), enough to debut at No. 20 on R&B Digital Songs.
