Flo Milli Finds First Top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs With ‘Never Lose Me’

Flo Milli finds her first top 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as “Never Lose Me” races 16-7 on the list dated Feb. 3. The single, released on RCA Records, has ridden a wave of TikTok virality that has triggered major gains across multiple streaming services as the tune also begins its radio campaign.

To enter the top 10 on the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, “Never Lose Me” tallied 15.5 million official U.S. streams in the tracking week of Jan. 19 – 25, according to Luminate, a 28% increase compared with the prior week. The improvement sends the song 10-3 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart with the Greatest Gainer award, given weekly to each song with the largest increase in stream count. Sales for the track, meanwhile, remain at a negligible amount and are essentially even with the previous week’s total; the track has yet to appear on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales ranking.

In the radio world, “Never Lose Me” registers its first appearances on airplay rankings with three simultaneous debuts: No. 25 on Rap Airplay, No. 35 on Rhythmic Airplay and No. 46 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay. As is the case too, on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, “Never Lose Me” gives the rapper her first visit to all the charts as a lead artist and second overall entry, following a featured role on Lah Pat’s “Rodeo” (which also had a separate version featuring Big Jade) in 2023.

Elsewhere, “Never Lose Me” rockets 15-5 on the Hot Rap Songs chart and 37-19 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100. Notably, the single’s sample of Babyface Ray and 42 Dugg’s 2023 track, “Ron Artest,” helps both artists gain chart credits through songwriting contributions.

“Never Lose Me” found huge reception on TikTok through a variety of trends that use the song as a soundtrack. Some clips that involve users displaying medals and trophies with captions that feature tongue-in-cheek reasons for the achievements (such as “worst ex”), while other videos center on flexing while using the song’s ““never had a b—h like me” lyric. Thanks to the song’s popularity on the social media platform, “Never Lose Me” leads the TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart for a third consecutive week.

The new hit is likely to appear on Flo Milli’s forthcoming album, Fine Ho, Stay, for which the rapper shared the album art last October. The new set is the third and final installment in an album trilogy, following 2020’s Ho, Why Is You Here? and 2022’s You Still Here, Ho?
