The songs list is up until Fall 2012 as far as I'm concerned with songs Winter 2012-present being ignored.

It is isnt airplay anymore

 

They are separate charts, but at time it was airplay, so that is odd.

It still spent 20+ rules when the chart was regular though right?

23 weeks on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay

4 weeks on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, replaced by "Diamonds." :skull:

They changed the chart from pure airplay to a conglomeration of sales, streams and airplay. So a pop hit labeled "R&B/Hip-hop" or a crossover hit will place higher because pop is such a huge format commercially and allows a song to chart highly over a long period of time. It's why Billboard's inverse chart point system is so awful.

 

OT: Aretha remains the Queen :clap3:

#45 Bumpin Grind - R.Kelly

 

Not right below CWT :ahh:I would have expected radio to play this a bit more, at least top 20. Bumpin Grind is a baby making classic.

#93. Respect

 

This chart could've been so interesting if they had based it off important stats instead or at least included residual airplay. Aretha really is a queen for being #1 for solo acts with only one top 100 entry. Hopefully her final album gives her the #1 artist spot :eli:
