Chance the Rapper's 'No Problem' Rules Two R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Charts
The track is his first leader on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay & Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop.
Chance the Rapper earns his first No. 1 on both Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop charts (dated Nov. 19) as "No Problem," featuring Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz, concurrently climbs to the top of each radio-based list.
The single, from Chance's streaming-only album Coloring Book, is his first entry as a lead act on the respective charts, following a featured role on BJ the Chicago Kid's 2015 track "Church" (also featuring Buddy), which peaked at No. 25 on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop and No. 44 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay.
(As for the difference between the similarly named charts, R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay combines mainstream R&B/hip-hop and adult R&B formatted-stations, making for a broader, and audience-based, weekly tally than Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop, which excludes adult R&B stations and is plays-based.)
On R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, "Problem" hops 3-1, drawing 23.6 million audience impressions in the week ending Nov. 6, according to Nielsen Music. "Problem" steps 2-1 on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop.
In addition to its airplay, "Problem" drew 6.1 million domestic streams (in the week ending Nov. 3), helping it additionally maintain the No. 46 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week (after rising to No. 43 on the Nov. 5 chart). "Problem" is not currently for sale and, therefore, does not contribute points from paid downloads to its rank on the Hot 100 (which blends airplay, digital song sales and streaming data.)
