Roddy Ricch banks his first No. 1 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as “The Box” rises from No. 3 on the chart dated Jan. 11. The track likewise ascends to No. 1 on Hot Rap Songs and races 13-3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Box” leads thanks to its streaming supremacy. The single jumps 6-1 to rule the all-genre Streaming Songs chart for the first time through 42.6 million U.S. clicks in the week ending Jan. 2, according to Nielsen Music, up 15% from the week prior.
The streaming total helps “Box” win a second week at No. 1 on both the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs and Rap Streaming Songs lists.
In particular, the squeaky “ee ee” sound has become perhaps the song’s signature moment.
“Box” appears on the rapper’s latest studio album, Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial. The set debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and logged its first three weeks at the summit, before slipping to No. 2 in its fourth frame.
