As we noted in our weekly radio update, ‘No Problem’ passed D.R.A.M.‘s ‘Broccoli’ by gaining 223 spins this week. ‘No Problem’ was the clear radio cut off Coloring Book and Chance’s radio promotion campaign ‘Rapper Radio’ certainly helped his case.
Independent artists have been having a lot of success on urban radio over the past few years. Just last year, Rich Homie Quan‘s ‘Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh)’ became the first #1 record on urban radio since 2006. Since then, many artists have had major success on urban radio, including Fat Joe & Remy Ma‘s ‘All The Way Up’, Luke Nasty‘s ‘Might Be,’ Lloyd‘s ‘Tru,’ Game‘s ‘All Eyez,’ & many others.
Congrats to Chance and his team on this major accomplishment. With the record sitting at #6 on rhythmic radio, look out for another potential #1 on the rhythmic format.
