Pusha T’s ‘Dry’ Sparks Seven Debuts on R&B/Hip-Hop Hot Songs Chart – Billboard
As Pusha T captures her debut No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with It’s almost dry, the album’s impact extends to the song charts, where nine of its tracks appear on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs tally. Thanks to To dry fate, the rapper nearly doubles the total number of songs from his previous career on the chart.
Seven of To dry cuts to Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs are debuts, led by arrival #17 of “Scrape It Off,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Don Toliver. “Scrape,” unsurprisingly, was Pusha T’s most-streamed song in the last week of tracking, with 8.3 million official U.S. streams in the week ending April 28, according to Luminate, enough to a #10 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs Chart.
With “Scrape” in mind, here’s the full recap of Pusha T’s new entries on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs:
- No. 17, “Scrape It Off”, featuring Lil Uzi Vert and Don Toliver
- No. 25, “Rock N Roll”, featuring Kanye West and Kid Cudi
- No. 28, “Dreamin of the Past”, with Kanye West
- No. 37, “Brambleton”
- No. 39, “Let the smokers shine the cups”
- No. 46, “Just So You Remember”
- No. 49, “Call My Bluff”
Additionally, two other songs from the album return to Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for their second weeks each on the chart. “Neck & Wrist,” featuring Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams, returns to a peak No. 23 after previously hitting a best No. 33, and “Diet Coke” resurfaces at No. 43, two points higher than its previous peak.
Thanks to the nine To dry songs, Pusha T soars to 24 total hits on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. He claimed his first time as a featured artist on Kanye West’s “Runaway” in 2010, while his highest peak also came from a guest lap at a West track, No. five weeks “Mercy” in 2012.
As mentioned above, To dry marks Pusha T’s first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 All Genres as well as the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The set landed with 55,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week (ending April 28). To dry became its second champion on Top Rap Albums, following the one-week rule of King Push: Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude in 2016.
