Chris Brown makes it a dozen leaders on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart as “Go Crazy,” a collaboration with Young Thug, skips from No. 3 to No. 1 on the chart dated Aug. 1. The pair’s single rises through a 5% hike in plays in the week ending July 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

With the coronation, Brown climbs to 12 No. 1s on his Rhythmic Songs chart resume, tying Lil Wayne for the fourth-most among all acts since the chart began in 1992. Lil Wayne edged ahead of Brown just weeks ago, as his contributions with DaBaby and Tory Lanez on a remix of Jack Harlow’s “What’s Poppin” pushed the rap hit to the summit on the July 18-dated chart.

Here’s a full look at the standings for artists with the most No. 1s on the radio ranking:
28, Drake
17, Rihanna
13, Usher
12, Chris Brown
12, Lil Wayne
11, Bruno Mars
10, Beyoncé
10, The Weeknd

Young Thug, meanwhile, picks up his third Rhythmic Songs No. 1 and first in a leading role. The rapper/singer previously visited the summit as a featured act on both Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” which reigned for three weeks in 2018 and on Post Malone’s “Goodbyes,” a one-week champ last September.

Elsewhere, “Crazy” retreats 3-4 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart after having reached No. 2 in July. Despite the dip, net positive gains from the Rhythmic sector help “Crazy” climb 21-20 on the all-genre Radio Songs chart. There, it rises with a 1% boost to 34.9 million in audience reach.

“Crazy” also makes headlines on the Billboard Hot 100, which combines all-format radio airplay audience, streaming and song sales, as the track leaps 29-10 following the premiere of its official music video. Brown logs his 16th top 10 with the new addition, while Young Thug nabs a third.

“Go Crazy” appears on Brown and Young Thug’s joint mixtape, Slime & B. The project, released in May, has climbed to No. 4 on the Top R&B Albums chart and No. 24 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
