Cardi B and Bruno Mars’ second collaboration, “Please Me,” rockets to the top of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with a 6-1 burst on the list dated March 16. The track becomes Mars’ third No. 1, while Cardi B collects her fourth.
“Please” traces its jump largely to increased streams after its official music video premiered on March 1. The song rallied to 45.3 million U.S. streams in the week ending March 7, according to Nielsen Music, up 86 percent from the prior frame. The surge thrusts the track 9-1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs.
Sales, too, pick up as the collaboration registers 28,000 downloads in the week ending March 7, enough to return the collaboration to No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales for a second overall week. It previously led two frames ago, with its opening sum of 51,000 downloads.
