Plus Tory Lanez rises to No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and Andra Day debuts on Hot R&B Songs.
Rapper Yo Gotti earns his first No. 1 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart (viewable on billboard.biz) with “Down In the DM,” jumping 4-1 (chart dated Feb. 6). It’s up 10 percent in spins for the week ending Jan. 24, according to Nielsen Music, propelling it to the top in its 12th charting week.
The Tennessee native first landed on the chart in 2007 when “Let’s Vibe,” featuring Pretty Ricky, peaked at No. 35. Since his initial entry, he has placed 18 songs on the chart but “DM” is the only track to crack the top 10. A music video shot earlier this month is expected to be released soon and could trigger a gain on Hot Rap Songs, where it currently resides at its No. 7 peak spot.
