Tyga & Offset's 'Taste' No. 1 on Rhythmic Songs Chart, Drake's 'Nonstop' Hits Top 10
Tyga celebrates his first No. 1 as a lead artist on the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart as “Taste,” featuring Offset, ascends to the top rank on the chart dated Sept. 8. The collaboration, released on Last Kings Records/EMPIRE Recordings, jumps 3-1 thanks to a 5 percent boost in plays in the week ending Sept. 2, according to Nielsen Music.
“Taste” also secures Offset’s first No. 1 on Rhythmic Songs among four chart entries as a solo act.
Tyga previously reigned atop Rhythmic Songs through a featured role on Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” which led for two weeks in 2014. As a lead act, his prior best performance was a No. 2 high for “Ayo,” a 2015 co-billed team-up with Brown.
Beyond its new Rhythmic Songs triumph, “Taste” continues to ripen on other radio rankings. The tune lifts 6-5 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, thanks to a 2 percent bump to 20 million in format audience in the week ending Sept. 2, per Nielsen Music. It also rises 3-2 on Rap Airplay via 4 percent growth in weekly audience and steps 5-3 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart, where it sports a 6 percent increase in plays in the week.
Drake Extends Top 10 Record: Drake also makes waves on Rhythmic Songs as his Scorpion track “Nonstop” enters the top 10 with an 11-10 gain. The track improves 11 percent in weekly plays.
With “Nonstop,” Drake pads his record for the most top 10s on Rhythmic Songs since the chart began Oct. 3, 1992. His 45 top 10s outpaces the runners-up, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne, both with 40.
Drake’s latest feat also gives the superstar a fourth top 10 from Scorpion. The set’s first two singles, “God’s Plan” and “Nice for What” each registered six weeks at No. 1 earlier in the year, while “In My Feelings” ran the table for four frames.
