Lil Wayne Helps Universal Lock Down Top Four Spots on R&B/Hip-Hop Chart
Universal Republic becomes the first record company to lock down the top four spots on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart in nearly six years. As it did a week ago, Universal Republic holds down positions 1 to 3, respectively, with “I’m On One” by DJ Khaled featuring Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne (on We the Best/Young Money/Cash Money), “How to Love” by Lil Wayne (Cash Money) and “Motivation” by Kelly Rowland featuring Lil Wayne (Universal Motown). Jumping up 5-4 is Nicki Minaj with “Super Bass” (Young Money/Cash Money) — which doesn’t feature Wayne, but he’s Minaj’s mentor, frequent collaborator and, since Young Money is his label, basically her boss.
