Chris Brown makes it a dozen leaders on Billboard’s Rhythmic Songs airplay chart as “Go Crazy,” a collaboration with Young Thug, skips from No. 3 to No. 1 on the chart dated Aug. 1. The pair’s single rises through a 5% hike in plays in the week ending July 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
With the coronation, Brown climbs to 12 No. 1s on his Rhythmic Songs chart resume, tying Lil Wayne for the fourth-most among all acts since the chart began in 1992. Lil Wayne edged ahead of Brown just weeks ago, as his contributions with DaBaby and Tory Lanez on a remix of Jack Harlow’s “What’s Poppin” pushed the rap hit to the summit on the July 18-dated chart.
Here’s a full look at the standings for artists with the most No. 1s on the radio ranking:
12, Chris Brown
12, Lil Wayne
11, Bruno Mars
10, The Weeknd
Young Thug, meanwhile, picks up his third Rhythmic Songs No. 1 and first in a leading role. The rapper/singer previously visited the summit as a featured act on both Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” which reigned for three weeks in 2018 and on Post Malone’s “Goodbyes,” a one-week champ last September.
Elsewhere, “Crazy” retreats 3-4 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart after having reached No. 2 in July. Despite the dip, net positive gains from the Rhythmic sector help “Crazy” climb 21-20 on the all-genre Radio Songs chart. There, it rises with a 1% boost to 34.9 million in audience reach.
“Crazy” also makes headlines on the Billboard Hot 100, which combines all-format radio airplay audience, streaming and song sales, as the track leaps 29-10 following the premiere of its official music video. Brown logs his 16th top 10 with the new addition, while Young Thug nabs a third.
