Usher lands in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for the first time in seven years as “Good Good” with Summer Walker and 21 Savage advances 11-7 on the list dated Oct. 14. The ascent comes from the song’s sales gains and increased radio reach as it captures or nears the summit of multiple airplay charts.

In the latest tracking week (Sept. 29 – Oct. 5), “Good Good” generated 5.4 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate, a 1% increase from the prior week, and 2,000 sales downloads (up 45%) that spark a 5-3 push for a new peak on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart. For radio airplay, “Good Good” registered 38.7 million total audience impressions, a 9% improvement from the previous frame.

Diving further into the radio ranks, “Good Good” wins a second week at No. 1 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart as the most heard song on U.S. monitored R&B/hip-hop radio stations, despite a 2% drop for the week in plays. It also cracks the top 10 on Adult R&B Airplay (11-9) through a 16% surge in weekly plays and repeats at its No. 2 high on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, which ranks songs by combined audience listenership on the adult R&B and mainstream R&B/hip-hop formats. There, “Good Good” climbed 2% in weekly impressions to 20.3 million at the format.

With “Good Good,” Usher achieves his 29th career top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and first since “No Limit” featuring Young Thug in 2016. Here’s a full rundown of his top 10 collection:
