Silk Sonic’s ‘Door’ Becomes One of Five Longest-Leading No. 1s on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay

With “Door” posting a 16th term in the top slot, here’s a look at the songs with the most weeks at No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay since the chart began in 1992:

Weeks at No. 1, Song Title, Artist, Date Reached No. 1
29, “Go Crazy,” Chris Brown & Young Thug, Aug. 22, 2020
27, “No Guidance,” Chris Brown featuring Drake, Aug. 24, 2019

15, “Be Without You,” Mary J. Blige, Jan. 7, 2006
15, “Hotline Bling,” Drake, Oct. 24, 2015

In other Silk Sonic news, the duo released their long-awaited second single, “Skate,” on July 30. The track is off to a rapid start on radio, with 6.9 million in audience in just three days to prompt a No. 23 debut on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay. The entrance is the highest for any title since Drake’s “Toosie Slide” raced in at No. 22 in April 2020.

Adult-based R&B radio stations clearly have given the song their stamp of approval, as “Skate” starts at No. 18 on the Adult R&B Airplay chart. Mainstream-based stations aren’t far behind, with “Skate” hovering just below the 40-position cutoff on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay list.

The full impact of “Skate” and its first week results – including sales and streams – and its debut positions on the Billboard Hot 100, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and similar charts will be available on Tuesday (Aug. 10).
