Sexyy Red, one of rap’s biggest breakout stars of 2023, lands her first top 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart through a guest spot on Drake’s “Rich Baby Daddy,” which also features SZA. The track is one of 21 Drake arrivals as his For All the Dogs album cuts flood the list.

“Rich Baby Daddy” debuts at No. 10 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list dated Oct. 21. The premiere gives Sexyy Red her first top 10 in her fifth visit, following her breakthrough viral hit “Pound Town” with Tay Keith, which, after a remix release with Nicki Minaj, peaked at No. 21; “SkeeYee” (No. 17); “Looking for the Hoes (Ain’t My Fault)” (No. 49); and “Hellcats Srts 2,” with Lil Durk (No. 40).


Fellow featured act SZA nabs her 16th career top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, while, between “Rich Baby Daddy” and six further top 10 debuts this week, Drake ups his total to a record-extending 128 top 10s on the tally. The triple-digit total pushes him further into his own stratosphere, now 71 ahead of the second-place act, James Brown, who boasts 57 top 10s (dating to October 1958, when the chart became the first all-encompassing songs survey for the genre).

In the Oct. 6-12 tracking week, “Rich Baby Daddy” registered 24.3 million official U.S. streams and 1,000 downloads sold. The former allows for a No. 8 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart, while the latter sparks a No. 12 bow on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales. In addition, the track opens at No. 28 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay thanks to 3 million audience impressions at the format.

As mentioned above, “Rich Baby Daddy” appears on Drake’s new album, For All the Dogs, released Oct. 6. The set’s tracks storm the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, with 21 debuts from the project and the previously released, former one-week champ “Slime You Out,” featuring SZA, at No. 6 in its fourth week on the list. The domination includes a second Dogs No. 1, “First Person Shooter,” featuring J. Cole, which grants Drake a record-extending 30th No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. With his latest champ, he moves 10 ahead of the nearest competitors, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder, each with 20 leaders.
