Tyla’s “Water” Claims The No. 1 Spot On Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay Chart

South African artist, Tyla’s popular hit song “Water” ascends to the top of the Adult R&B Airplay list dated February 24, one month after it peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.

According to Luminate, the song, which was released on FAX Records/Epic Records, climbs 4-1 after experiencing a 25% increase in plays, which made it the most played music on adult R&B radio stations in the United States during the tracking week of February 9–15.

Owing to its quick ascent, “Water” also wins the weekly Greatest Gainer title, which goes to the song with the biggest gain in plays. With her debut appearance on “Water,” 22-year-old Tyla receives her first Adult R&B Airplay No. 1.

With eight non-consecutive weeks of dominance on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart starting in December and one week on the Rhythmic Airplay chart that same month, the breakthrough single is a crossover blockbuster.

The South African singer, who earlier this month won the first-ever Grammy Award for best African music performance for the song “Water,” is continuing her winning streak with radio coronations.

On the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, which ranks songs based on the combined audience totals from adult R&B and mainstream R&B/hip-hop stations, “Water” is in its sixth non-consecutive week at No. 2.
