When it comes to Doja Cat and rhythmic radio, the odds, as of late, are always in her favor.

For the second year in a row, Doja Cat achieves four No. 1s on Billboard’s Rhythmic Airplay chart and strengthens her status as one of the format’s top-tier acts. The achievement comes as “Vegas” climbs from No. 3 to lead the list dated Nov. 19. The song ascends after a 7% increase in weekly plays that made it the most-played song on U.S. monitored rhythmic radio stations in the week ending Nov. 13, according to Luminate.

“Vegas” appears on the soundtrack to the film Elvis and samples the Big Mama Thornton’s 1952 version of the song “Hound Dog,” which Presley covered and turned into a major pop hit four years later.

The new champ also banks Doja Cat’s fourth Rhythmic Airplay No. 1 hit of 2022. She previously reigned this calendar year with “Woman,” (five weeks in March – April), “Freaky Deaky,” with Tyga (one week in May), and through a featured spot on Post Malone’s “I Like You (A Happier Song)” (four weeks in August – September).

She likewise managed a quartet of chart-toppers in 2021, which then made her the first woman to land four No. 1s in the same calendar year since Rihanna in 2012.

Beyond her quadruple plays in 2021 and 2022, Doja Cat has also topped the chart once more. Her breakout single, “Say So,” led for three weeks in 2020.

All told, “Vegas” gives Doja Cat her ninth No. 1 on Rhythmic Airplay and moves into a joint share of 10th place, with Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj, for the most in the chart’s history since its launch in 1992. Here’s a look at the current standings for most No. 1s:

36, Drake
17, Rihanna
13, Bruno Mars
13, Usher
12, Chris Brown
12, Lil Wayne
12, The Weeknd
11, Beyoncé
10, Post Malone
9, Doja Cat
9, Jay-Z
9, Nicki Minaj

Elsewhere in the radio world, “Vegas” climbs 5-3 on the all-genre Radio Songs chart, with a 13% boost to 60 million in audience reach. In addition to its success at the rhythmic format, “Vegas” logged a four-week stay at No. 1 on Pop Airplay (and drops 1-3 this week). Further, with “I Like You (A Happier Song),” immediately ruling Pop Airplay for the three weeks before “Vegas” took over, Doja Cat combined for a seven-week stay at the penthouse.
