Already a radio hit, “Throat Baby” improves its standing on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, ascending 6-5. The track climbs to 15.1 million in format audience in the week ending Jan. 31, a 5% bump from the prior tracking week.
Despite the gains in consumption metrics, the original version of “Throat Baby” slightly outperforms the remix in weekly activity on the chart, which combines sales, streams and airplay. Thus, DaBaby and City Girls do not receive billing on the chart, though the situation could change in future weeks if the remix version provides the majority share of the pair.
Elsewhere, “Throat Baby” maintains its status as the third-most played song on MRC Data’s monitored R&B/hip-hop radio stations as it retains a No. 3 rank on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. Yet, though it remains in place, it gains 4% in plays in the week ending Jan. 31.
While R&B/hip-hop radio is, unsurprisingly, the single’s biggest supporter, “Throat Baby” has expanded to rhythmic radio. On the Rhythmic Airplay chart, the song rises 29-24 in its eighth chart week thanks to a 25% surge in plays.
