How This Chart Works
Radio Airplay + Sales Data + Streaming Data = HOT R&B/HIP-HOP SONGS
This week's most popular R&B/Hip-Hop songs, based on radio airplay audience impressions as measured by Nielsen Music, sales data as compiled by Nielsen Music and streaming activity data from online music sources tracked by Nielsen Music. Songs are defined as current if they are newly-released titles, or songs receiving widespread airplay and/or sales activity for the first time.
