For the first time this year, Chris Brown occupies the number one spot on rhythmic radio with his Drake-assisted single “No Guidance.”
With spins at 86 monitored radio stations, Brown’s yearning slow jam rises from No. 5 to No. 1, according to the latest Mediabase tracking report. The track’s total audience is 28.9 million.
The last time the global superstar overtook the number spot on this radio format as a lead artist was in 2014 for “Loyal” featuring Tyga. His “Show Me” teamwork with Kid Ink also topped the airplay chart that year.
On the Billboard Rhythmic Songs chart this week, “No Guidance” makes a jump from No. 8 to No. 4. Brown now earns the second place title for the most top 10’s (42) on this chart. He previously held the runner-up honor with Lil ‘Wayne with 41 top 10’s.
Brown and his new hit “No Guidance” replayed a similar chart move with Lil’ Wayne on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart earlier this month. The trippy tune helped bag Brown his 48th top 10 single, officially becoming the second-best act to total the most top 10 entries on this airplay chart. Drake holds the title for the most, with 66.
“No Guidance” appears on Brown’s new album, Indigo, which claimed his third number one album on the Billboard 200.
In August, Brown will support his ninth LP on his upcoming INDIGOAT Tour. The first show kicks off on August 20 in Portland, with special guests Ty Dolla $ign, Tory Lanez, Joyner Lucas, and Yella Beezy.
