City Girls return to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Emerging Artists chart (dated Aug. 22) for a 12th total week on top, and for the first time since June 2019.
Current radio hit “Jobs” ranks at No. 18 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart, No. 19 on Rap Airplay, No. 21 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and No. 31 on Rhythmic Songs. It drew 8.7 million all-format radio audience impressions in the tracking week, up 10%, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, along with 2.8 million U.S. streams.
Plus, the duo’s “Pussy Talk,” featuring Doja Cat, gained by 36% to 4.4 million streams.
City Girls, which comprises JT and Yung Mami, last led Emerging Artists on June 22, 2019, then powered by their breakthrough singles “Act Up” (No. 26 Billboard Hot 100 peak) and “Twerk,” featuring Cardi B (No. 29).
Among other Emerging Artists chart moves, trio Bronson debuts at No. 29, thanks to its debut self-titled studio set, which opens at No. 5 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums with 5,000 equivalent album units earned. Single “Heart Attack,” featuring lau.ra, re-enters Hot Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 32, after reaching No. 17 in June and becoming the act’s first entry on any Billboard chart.
The Emerging Artists chart ranks the most popular developing artists of the week, using the same formula as the all-encompassing Billboard Artist 100, which measures artist activity across multiple Billboard charts, including the Hot 100, Billboard 200 and the Social 50. (The Artist 100 lists the most popular acts, overall, each week.) However, the Emerging Artists chart excludes acts that have notched a top 25 entry on either the Hot 100 or Billboard 200, as well as artists that have achieved two or more top 10s on Billboard‘s “Hot” song genre charts and/or consumption-based “Top” album genre rankings.
