It’s a one-two punch for Metro Boomin this week as the hitmaking producer takes over at No. 1 on both Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts. The former comes through the No. 1 arrival of “Creepin’,” with The Weeknd and 21 Savage, while the latter’s new champ is “Superhero (Heroes & Villains),” with Future and Chris Brown. Both tracks appear on Metro Boomin’s new album, Heroes & Villains, which likewise debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

“Creepin’, by itself, scores another double play as the song also storms in at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. It traces its entrance on the list, which factors streaming, radio airplay and sales into its rankings, mostly to 30.8 million official U.S. streams in the week ending Dec. 8, according to Luminate. The sum prompts a No. 1 arrival on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart. It also begins at No. 4 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart with 3,000 downloads sold in the same period and registered 2.3 million in radio airplay.


The new champ also brings a former genre hit back into play. “Creepin’” heavily reworks Mario Winans’ “I Don’t Wanna Know,” featuring P. Diddy and Enya, which reached No. 2 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in 2004.

“Creepin’” gives Metro Boomin his first No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. He previously reached a No. 5 best on another 21 Savage collaboration: The pair’s “Runnin” debuted and peaked there in October 2020.

21 Savage, for his part, picks up his fifth Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs leader and third of 2022, after a featured turn on Drake’s “Jimmy Cooks,” a one-week No. 1 in July and “Rich Flex,” with Drake, for the four prior weeks. Thus, as “Creepin’” replaces “Rich Flex,” 21 Savage is the first act to complete a self-replacement at No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs since Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” ceded the throne to “Good as Hell” in November 2019.

The Weeknd, meanwhile, adds his seventh career No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. On Hot R&B Songs, though, The Weeknd achieves his 10th leader and extends his record as the artist with the most No. 1s on the list since it launched in 2012. Here’s an updated look at his chart-topping collection on Hot R&B Songs:

“Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey),” 14 weeks at No. 1, beginning April 11, 2015
“Can’t Feel My Face,” 11, July 18, 2015
“The Hills,” 14, Oct. 3, 2015
“Starboy,” featuring Daft Punk, 20, Oct. 15, 2016
“Call Out My Name,” one, April 14, 2018
“Heartless,” one, Dec. 14, 2019
“Blinding Lights,” 48, March 7, 2020
“You Right,” with Doja Cat, one, Sept. 4, 2021
“Sacrifice,” one, Jan. 22, 2022
“Creepin’,” with Metro Boomin & 21 Savage, one (to date), Dec. 17, 2022

Both Metro Boomin and 21 Savage each earns his first No. 1 on Hot R&B Songs.

Over on the Hot Rap Songs chart, “Superhero (Heroes & Villains)” begins with 27.4 million official U.S. streams, 1,000 in download sales and 149,000 in radio airplay in the week ending Dec. 8.

In line with the Hot R&B Songs achievements, Metro Boomin acquires his first Hot Rap Songs No. 1. “Runnin,” with 21 Savage, which peaked at No. 5, was his prior best showing.

Future gets his third Hot Rap Songs No. 1, after he and Young Thug’s guest spots on Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy” led for two weeks in 2021, and his own “Wait for U,” featuring Drake and Tems, a two-week champ earlier this year.

Chris Brown grabs his fifth champ on Hot Rap Songs and returns to the summit for the first time in almost exactly eight years. “Superhero” joins this crew as the latest of Brown’s chart-toppers:

“Shortie Like Mine,” Bow Wow featuring Chris Brown & Johnta Austin, seven weeks at No 1, beginning Dec. 2, 2006
“Look at Me Now,” featuring Lil Wayne & Busta Rhymes, 10, April 23, 2011
“My Last,” Big Sean featuring Chris Brown, two, July 2, 2011
“Only,” Nicki Minaj featuring Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown, one, Dec. 27, 2014
“Superhero (Heroes & Villians),” with Metro Boomin & Future, one (to date), Dec. 17, 2022

Elsewhere, both songs start in the top 10 of the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, with “Creepin’” arriving at No. 5 and “Superhero” at No. 8. The pair lead all 15 songs from Heroes & Villians onto the chart.
