Post Malone sets a new record on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as he occupies six of the top 10 positions. On the chart dated May 12, the rapper/singer has tracks in the tier with “Psycho,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, which climbs one spot to return to its No. 2 peak, “Better Now,” a No. 4 debut, the former No. 1 smash “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage (No. 5), and three additional debuts with “Paranoid” (No. 7), “Rich & Sad” (No. 9) and the Swae Lee-assisted “Spoil My Night” (No. 10)

With six titles in the top 10, Post Malone outdoes Cardi B, Drake and J. Cole, who each have registered at least one week with five songs in the region.

Post Malone’s record-setting achievement comes courtesy of his beerbongs & bentleys album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart with the highest one-week streaming sum for any album.

Below the top tier on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, 12 more beerbongs cuts are on the 50-position list: “Ball For Me,” featuring Nicki Minaj (No. 11), “Some Bitches,” featuring G-Eazy & YG (No. 13), “Zack and Codeine” (No. 15), “Over Now” (No. 16), “Takin’ Shots” (No. 18), “92 Explorer” (No. 26), “Otherside” (No. 29), “Blame It on Me” (No. 30), “Sugar Wraith” (No. 37). Plus, previous release “Candy Paint” re-enters at No. 23, two spots below its best showing.

NICKI ADDS A TOP 10: Meanwhile, on Rap Airplay, Nicki Minaj powers to the top 10 with “Chun-Li,” which darts 15-10. The spike stems from an 18 percent lift in audience in the week ending May 6, according to Nielsen Music.

“Chun-Li” becomes Minaj’s 28th top 10 on the Rap Airplay chart, which began in February 1999. Her sum is more than twice that of the next female challenger, Eve, who claims 12 top 10s. On the overall leaderboard, Minaj ranks fourth behind only Drake (51), Lil Wayne (46) and JAY-Z (35).

MIGOS ‘WALK’ MOVES: Speaking of Drake, he logs a record-extending 51st top 10 on Rap Airplay, as his collaboration with Migos, “Walk It Talk It,” struts 11-6. The song flies with a 44 percent burst in audience for the week and secures the week’s Greatest Gainer prize.

For Migos, “Walk” gives the trio an 11th top 10 on Rap Airplay. Impressively, eight of the group’s nine most recent chart entries have reached the region.
