Tyga & Offset Hit No. 1 On Rhythmic Songs Chart With "Taste"

This week, Tyga enjoys his first instance as the lead artist the No. 1 track on Billboard’s Rhythmic songs airplay chart.

It’s the Offset-assisted “Taste” that accomplishes the feat on the chart dated for the week September 8th, moving from No. 3 after experiencing a 5 percent boost in plays according to Nielsen Music. It also marks Offset’s first No. 1 on the chart as a solo act and his first solo entry on the chart overall.

The last time Tyga was at No. 1 was in 2014 with Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” which occupied the penthouse for two weeks straight. His next best performance as a solo act arrived with the Breezy collaboration “Ayo.”

Elsewhere,” Taste” moves up from No. 6 to No.5 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, moves to No. 2 on the Rap Airplay chart, and goes to No. 3 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart.

Since its release back in May, “Taste” has been an international summer anthem, ushering in a period resurgence for the Cali-bred rapper. The track is currently certified double platinum and this week, peaks on Billboard’s coveted Hot 100 at No. 8.

The same chart also becomes territory for another win by Drake as “Nonstop” enters the top 10, breaking his own record for the most top 10s on the chart since its inception in 1992.

Currently, Drake claims 45 tracks in the top 10 with the next best tally being Lil Wayne and Chris Brown tied with 40.

 

Drake Beats Rihanna's Record For Most Weeks Atop Billboard Rhythmic Song Charts

It’s hardly shocking when Drake beats a record on the Billboard charts, especially with his latest album, Scorpion. The rapper’s done incredible numbers on the project already and at this point, it’s spent five consecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200. Although Travis Scott will likely dethrone Drake for the top spot with his new project, Astroworld, Drake has managed to reach a new milestone on the Billboard Rhythmic Song charts.

As everyone continues to do the “In My Feelings” challenge, it comes as no surprise that Drake takes the number one spot on the Billboard Rhythmic Songs airplay chart. As the song went from 2-1 this week with a 13% jump in plays in the week, Drake marks his 100th frame at the top the chart. Not only is Drake the first artist since 1992 to bank that many weeks with the top spot, he also edges out Rihanna’s record who’s tallied 99 weeks in total. 

The new record comes roughly a week after Drake released the new visuals for “In My Feelings.” The video came out a week a go and has already reached 53M views so far.

Aside from reaching a new milestone on the charts, the rapper also made history in the streaming world this week. It was revealed that Drake made history as the first artist to ever surpass 50 billion streams across all platforms.
