Drake Earns 20th Radio Songs Top 10 With 'Nice for What,' Tying Lil Wayne For Most Among Males
The song also becomes Drake's record-extending 25th No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay.
As previously reported, Childish Gambino's "This Is America" debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated May 19), dethroning Drake's "Nice for What," which spent its first four weeks on the survey at No. 1.
Still, Drake earns a notable consolation prize.
"Nice" enters the top 10 of Billboard's all-genre Radio Songs chart (rising 11-8 with 72 million in airplay audience, up 18 percent, in the week ending May 13, according to Nielsen Music), becoming Drake's 20th top on the airplay tally. With the ascent, he ties Lil Wayne for the most Radio Songs top 10s among solo males, dating to the chart's December 1990 inception. The pair trails only Rihanna, the overall leader with 29 Radio Songs top 10s, and Mariah Carey, with 23.
Here's an updated look at the acts with the most Radio Songs top 10s:
23, Mariah Carey
20, Lil Wayne
"Nice" concurrently climbs 3-1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, becoming Drake's record-extending 25th No. 1 (Usher ranks second with 15). Drake has led the list continuously for 12 weeks running, thanks to three songs: Before "Nice," his own "God's Plan" reigned for nine frames beginning (March 3), and BlocBoy JB's "Look Alive," featuring Drake," led the past two weeks (beginning May 5).
