Mai is one week bashful of relating Mary J. Blige for draft history.

As Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” secures a 14th week atop Billboard‘s RB/Hip-Hop Airplay draft (dated Sept. 22), a singular matches a order of Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” for a second-best display by a womanlike artist given a chart’s pregnancy in 1992.

“Boo’d” traces a extended mastery to a coexisting recognition on both adult and mainstream RB stations. The strain logs an 11th week atop a Adult RB Songs airplay draft and slips 5-9 on Mainstream RB/Hip-Hop, after carrying formerly spent dual weeks during No. 1. (RB/Hip-Hop Airplay ranks songs formed on assembly impressions on a total row of adult and mainstream RB stations.)
