Saweetie

Saweetie nabs her second career top 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as “Tap In” jumps 13-9 on the list dated Sept. 12 following a new remix with Post Malone, DaBaby and Jack Harlow released on Aug. 28.

With the move, “Tap” becomes the rapper’s highest charting hit on the chart. Last summer’s hit “My Type” climbed to a No. 10 best nearly one year ago, on the Sept. 7, 2019 chart.

In addition, “Tap” advances 13-8 on Hot Rap Songs to tie “Type” as Saweetie’s best showing on that list. Similarly, on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, “Tap” races 10 spots to No. 21 to match the “Type” peak.

“Tap” improves 14-12 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart thanks to 3,000 downloads sold in the week ending Sept. 3, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, up 14% from the prior seven-day period. The new guest-heavy remix accounts for 1,000 of those sales.

Unsurprisingly, the added boost of a guest-heavy remix prompts a burst in streams. The single jumps to 11.1 million U.S. streams in the week ending Aug. 28, a 26% surge from the prior week. The total prompts “Tap” to debut at No. 16 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart and No. 15 on Rap Streaming Songs.

(Despite the boost due to the remix, the original version makes up the majority of activity and thus, precludes the new guest stars from joining the “Tap In” artist billing.)

Radio activity also improves for “Tap In,” which rises 7-6 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and picks up a 4% boost to 16.3 million in format audience in the week ending Sept. 6. It also skips 8-4 on Rhythmic Songs thanks to a 20% hike in plays. Similarly, it jumps 6-3 on Rap Airplay through a 10% upgrade in audience.

“Tap In” previews Saweetie’s debut studio album, Pretty Bitch Music, expected later this year. The set follows her latest EP, Icy, which peaked at No. 49 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums in 2019.
