Lil Uzi Vert’s ‘Rock’ Crashes Into Top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart

The rapper climbs to a dozen top 10s on the list and returns to the tier for the first time in two years.

Lil Uzi Vert flies to his first top 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in two years as “Just Wanna Rock” rallies 19-8 on the list dated Dec. 3. The jump comes as the song surges in streaming with residual gains in the week after its music video release.

“Rock” registered 18.1 million official U.S. on-demand streams in the week ending Nov. 24, according to Luminate, up 43% from 12.7 million in the week prior. The new total pushes the track 13-3 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart and 22-10 on the all-genre Streaming Songs list. Consumer gains also happen in the sales realm, with “Rock” having sold 1,000 downloads in the same period. Thanks to the purchases, the tune debuts at No. 14 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales.


In the airplay market, the third and final metric that contributes to the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, “Rock” arrives on its first radio chart. The single debuts at No. 37 on Rhythmic Airplay after a 72% improvement in plays in the week ending Nov. 27 compared with the prior week. It’s moving toward making landing on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, as it climbs 33% in weekly plays on that format. (All airplay, regardless of format origin, contributes to a song’s ranking on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.)

With “Rock,” Lil Uzi Vert secures his 12th career top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. He first visited the tier as a featured act on Migos’ “Bad and Boujee,” and last appeared in the area nearly two years ago, in November 2020, on “Drankin n Smokin,” with Future. Here’s a look at his dozen top 10 successes:
