Beyonce Passes Nicki Minaj For Most Top 10 Hits by a Woman on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Chart
Plus, SZA hits the top 10 with 'Broken Clocks.'
DJ Khaled’s “Top Off,” featuring JAY-Z, Future, and Beyoncé (who is credited as “B” on the track) jumps into the top 10 of Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart (dated April 7) with a 13-9 leap, sparked by its 14 percent increase in plays in the week ending April 1, according to Nielsen Music.
As the song clears the hurdle, Beyoncé banks her 30th top 10 and passes Nicki Minaj for the most top 10s among women since the chart began in 1993. Beyoncé first hit the top 10 as featured on then-boyfriend JAY-Z’s “’03 Bonnie in Clyde,” which peaked at No. 3 in 2002. Among the superstar’s 30 top hits, 12 have climbed all the way to No. 1 – another record among women.
With the collaboration, DJ Khaled secures his 14th top 10 hit on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop, while Future clocks his 24th.
In other “Top Off” news, the song continues to scale the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart (16-11 with a 16 percent surge in plays) and R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay (up 18-15 with 12 million in audience, up 9 percent).
SZA ‘Clocks’ Top 10: Below “Top Off,” SZA scores her fourth top 10 on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop as “Broken Clocks” chimes 11-10. The tune notches a 2 percent gain in plays for the week ending April 1.
Notably, “Clocks” rings up SZA’s third top 10 from her debut album, Ctrl, following “Love Galore,’ featuring Travis Scott and “The Weekend,” which both peaked at No. 4 this year.
