Read Time:2 minutes

As it ascends to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, DJ Khaled’s Wild Thoughts, featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, mounts the summit of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (dated July 29) in its fourth week on the tally.

Wild Thoughts rises with gains at radio, earning a 5-4 lift on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart and jumping to 30 million in audience in the week ending July 16, according to Nielsen Music, a gain of 35 percent. The song maintains its perfect No. 1 stretch on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs for a fourth week — having debuted at No. 1 and occupying the spot ever since — collecting 37.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending July 13 (down 6 percent week-over-week). On the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart, it dips 2-3 (42,000 downloads sold, down 13 percent, in the week ending July 13). The song also rebounds 2-1 for a second week atop the Hot R&B Songs chart.

Wild Thoughts becomes Tiller’s first No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Khaled claims his third leader, and for Rihanna, it marks her lucky seventh No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, a run that began when Take a Bow reached the top in 2008.

Here’s a look at Rihanna’s seven tunes that have gone all the way:
