Jack Harlow Joins Triple-Double Club at No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart

Jack Harlow attains a new milestone on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as “Lovin on Me” adds a 10th week at No. 1 on the list. With the latest week in charge, on the chart dated Jan. 27, Harlow becomes only the third artist to have three No. 1 hits that have each ruled for double-digit weeks.

Before “Lovin on Me,” the rapper’s first No. 1 on the list, the Lil Nas X-collaboration “Industry Baby” dominated for 19 weeks in 2021 – the third-longest run in the chart’s history – while 2022’s “First Class” ruled for 10 frames.

Thanks to the triple-double, Harlow joins Drake and Rihanna as the only acts to own at least three songs that posted at least 10 weeks at No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Drake claims six double-digit champs, with four from lead roles — “One Dance,” featuring Wizkid and Kyla (18 weeks), “Hotline Bling” (15), “God’s Plan” and “In My Feelings” (each 11) — and twice in supporting spots — DJ Khaled’s “I’m on One,” featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne and Rihanna’s “Work” (11). Rihanna’s three double-digit leaders break down into two lead roles: “Diamonds” (14) and “Work” (11), and an assist on Eminem’s “The Monster” (13).

Diving further into the current champ, “Lovin on Me” wins another term atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with radio gains and steady strong streaming and sales results. In the tracking week of Jan. 12-18, according to Luminate, “Lovin on Me” collected 26.7 million official U.S. streams; despite the 5% slip compared with last week’s 27.9 million, it remains at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart for an eighth overall week. The track rebounds 2-1 for a ninth frame leading the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales list, overcoming a 10% slide to 7,000 downloads sold in the tracking window.

In the radio world, “Lovin on Me” reinforces its position as a multi-format hit as the song registered 67.5 million in total audience in the tracking period, up 15% from the prior week. The single nabs a fourth week at No. 1 on Rhythmic Airplay after a 3% gain in plays for the week, rockets 7-1 on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay following a 20% surge in weekly plays, and steps 4-3 on Pop Airplay thanks to a 15% improvement there. The strength at multiple sectors pushes “Lovin on Me” 2-1 to crown the all-genre Radio Songs list for the first time.
