Second producer Nick Mira, meanwhile, banks his second leader after his work on Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams,” which led the chart for one week in October 2018.

The trio also bookends the 40-position Rhythmic Songs chart in the same roles as “Did It Again” debuts in the chart’s anchor spot. The tune enters the tally with a 9% boost in plays in the week.

Both “Ran$om” and “Again” appear on Tecca’s debut mixtape, We Love You Tecca. The project, released in August, debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and ranks at No. 7 in its sixth week on the survey.
