Cardi B Dethrones Herself On R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart With "Please Me"
Cardi B's "Money" track ruled for nine straight weeks on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart and has finally been dethroned as it drops down to No. 4 while Cardi once more ascends to No. 1 with her Bruno Mars' "Please Me" collaboration with the cut occupying the slot for the chart dated with April 6th.
The song experiences a jump of 17 percent with an updated audience of 24.4 million during the week ending in March 31st. It notes the first time any artist has made the switch since Drake did so when "Nice For What" knocked off BlocBoy JB's "Look Alive" cut. It also marks the first time a leading act has accomplished the feat with the last one doing so being, of course, Drake when "One Dance" bumped "Controlla."
For Bruno, it is the crooner's second No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart with his "That's What I Like" ruling for 12 weeks in 2017. Cardi's now on her fourth, with "Please" joining "Money," G-Eazy's "No Limit" and her breakout "Bodak Yellow."
Elsewhere, "Please Me" is rising the ranks on other charts, moving to No. 2 on Rap Airplay, No. 3 on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop, No. 4 on Rhythmic Songs airplay chart, and No. 6 on the all-genre Radio Songs chart, garnering a total pf 69.7 million in overall audience.
