“Wake Up” is Scott’s second “Astroworld” single to rule the list.

Travis Scott returns to No. 1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart with a second leader from his Astroworld album, as “Wake Up” rises 2-1 on the July 13-dated ranking.

Scott now has six Rhythmic Songs No. 1s to his name, four of which credit him as the lead artist. Fellow Astroworld single “Sicko Mode” was Scott’s last solo No. 1 (five weeks, October 2018), while “ZeZe,” on which Scott is featured with Offset behind lead artist Kodak Black, ruled for one week earlier this year.

Scott’s Rhythmic Songs No. 1s accumulation has been swift; each has ruled since January 2016, when “Antidote” snagged a two-week run at No. 1.

“Wake Up” concurrently reaches the top 20 of Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (21-20) and the top 30 of R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay (31-30), while ranking at No. 26 on Pop Songs.

Like much of Astroworld, “Wake Up” features a guest spot from an unbilled artist. In its case, the artist is The Weeknd, who contributes guest vocals. Had he been credited, it would have marked The Weeknd’s 10th Rhythmic Songs leader and first since “Pray for Me,” with Kendrick Lamar, in April 2018.
