Kendrick Lamar scores his first No. 1 on the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart (dated June 3) as “Humble.” steps 2-1 in its seventh week (up 15 percent in spins in the week ending May 21, according to Nielsen Music). Lamar, who holds eight top 10s at the format, had previously peaked No. 2 in 2013, as a featured guest on A$AP Rocky’s “F**kin Problems.”
The top four markets with the most weekly plays of “Humble.” all hail from Lamar’s native California. Rhythmic reporter KPWR, Los Angeles, leads with most spins through the week, with 130. KGGI, Riverside-San Bernadino, follows closely with 129 plays.
“Humble” also tops the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart (rising 2-1, up six percent in spins), marking his third chart-topping hit, and first No. 1 as a lead act in five years, since “Swimming Pools (Drank)” crowned the tally for nine weeks in 2012.
Meanwhile, “Humble.” spends a second consecutive week at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, supported in part by 44.8 million domestic streams in the week ending May 18 (it previously reached No. 1 on the May 6 chart).
