Brown’s 'Undecided' bumps 12-10 and helps the singer share the silver medal.

Chris Brown’s “Undecided” pushes into the top 10 of the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart dated Feb. 9. The song gains 12-10 through a 9 percent boost to 16.5 million in audience in the week ending Feb. 3, per Nielsen Music.

The single samples Shanice’s “I Love Your Smile,” which spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and climbed to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991.

The “Undecided” gain secures Brown’s 47th top 10 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. His career sum matches Lil Wayne’s count for the second-best total among all acts since the chart began in 1992. The pair trail only Drake, who owns 63 top 10s.

With Brown’s ascension, here’s a look at the leaderboard for most top 10s in the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart’s history:

63, Drake
47, Chris Brown
47, Lil Wayne
35, JAY-Z
32, R. Kelly
31, Nicki Minaj
30, Usher

Furthermore, “Undecided,” released Jan. 4, cracks the top 10 ceiling in only its fifth chart week, the fourth-fastest rise among his 47 top 10s. The 2006 single “Say Goodbye” and 2016 release “Party,” featuring Usher and Gucci Mane, likewise needed five frames to enter the region. Three tracks tie for his quickest trip to the top 10, with each completing the sprint in four weeks: “Gimme That,” featuring Lil Wayne in 2006, a featured turn on Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” in 2012 and “Fine China” the following year.

As “Undecided” cracks the top 10 threshold on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, the track duplicates the feat on the plays-based Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay ranking. The track climbs 12-9 on the latter thanks to a 9 percent rise in plays in the week ending Feb. 3.

“Undecided” is likely to appear on Brown’s forthcoming studio album, Indigo. The set follows 2017’s Heartbreak on A Full Moon, which became Brown’s seventh No. 1 set on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and held the top position for three weeks.
