Cardi B’s “Money” No. 1 On R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart Music
According to new numbers pulled by Nielsen music, Cardi has now notched her third No. 1 atop the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart with her “Money” single after experiencing a jump of 9 percent, reaching an audience of 29.7 million listeners.
Previously, Cardi occupied No. for her “Bodak Yellow” breakout and her role in G-Eazy and A$AP Rocky’s “No Limit” cut. While the former held on for 10 weeks straight, the latter clocked in at No. for six weeks.
“Money” now plays a role in the culmination of Cardi’s top 10 singles on the chart which are now tallied at ten tracks total. Rounding it to the figure is also Cardi’s part in Pardison Fontaine “Backin’ It Up,” which lands at No. 9 this week after a jump of 11 percent. For Pardi, it’s the New York songwriter and rapperr’s first visit to the top 10 as a front-facing artist.
“Money” also makes the leap to No. 1 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart, becoming the most played track on R&B/hip-hop radio stations, confirming her for a fifth No. 1 on that chart. “Backin It Up” also moves to No.6 on the same chart after locking in a 12 percent boost in plays. Next up, eyes will be set to see if Cardi is keen on recreating the same magic that granted her such a successful 2018 as we await her sophomore outing.
