Ella Mai earns her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart as “Trip” ascends 3-1 on the ranking dated Dec. 20. The track advances with a 5 percent jump in plays in the week ending Dec. 16, according to Nielsen Music.
Mai’s only other previous Rhythmic Songs hit, breakout single “Boo’d Up,” topped out at No. 3 in July.
Beyond its new Rhythmic coronation, “Trip” continues its domination on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, where it leads for an eighth consecutive week. As “Boo’d Up” ruled for a staggering 16 weeks earlier this year -- the longest run of any song by a female artist in the chart’s history -- Mai has landed 24 weeks at No. 1 in 2018, the best calendar year showing by any woman and second only to Lil Wayne’s 30-week output in 2011.
