Lil Wayne Breaks Record For Six No 1s On Mainstream R&B Hip Hop Chart

According to Billboard, Lil Wayne broke another record last week by being the first music artist to have six No. 1s on Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop Radio Airplay chart in one calender year. This is because of Weezy‘s “She Will” single featuring Drake moving from #3 to #1.
