Gunna Notches His First Solo No. 1 on Rhythmic Airplay Chart With ‘Fukumean’

Gunna nabs his third No. 1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Airplay chart with “Fukumean,” which vaults from No. 4 to the top of the tally dated Sept. 23.

It’s the rapper’s first unaccompanied No. 1 on the chart. He first reigned as featured on Chris Brown’s “Heat” in November 2019, followed by “Lemonade,” a co-bill with Internet Money and featuring Don Toliver and Nav, in November 2020.

In between “Lemonade” and “Fukumean,” Gunna rose as high as No. 4 on Rhythmic Airplay with “Pushin P” with Future and featuring Young Thug in April 2022.

The coronation of “Fukumean” on Rhythmic Airplay follows the song’s ascents to No. 1 on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and Rap Airplay; it leads each list for a second week.

On the most recently published, multimetric Billboard Hot 100 (dated Sept. 16), “Fukumean” placed at No. 9, following its No. 4 peak in August. In addition to its radio airplay, the song earned 19.7 million official U.S. streams and sold 1,000 downloads in the Sept. 1-7 tracking week, according to Luminate. It also topped the multimetric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for five weeks each, beginning in July, having become Gunna’s first No. 1 on each ranking.

“Fukumean” is the second radio single from A Gift & a Curse, Gunna’s fourth LP. The set debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart dated July 1 and has earned 474,000 equivalent album units to date.

All Billboard charts dated Sept. 23 will refresh on on Tuesday, Sept. 19.
