Future, Metro Boomin and Kendrick Lamar’s “Like That” adds two more Billboard airplay No. 1s to its collection, rising to the top of the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay tallies dated June 1.

The coronation of “Like That” on both lists accompanies its continued reign on Rap Airplay for a fifth week and Rhythmic Airplay for a third frame.

“Like That” becomes the first song to rule all four charts since Drake and 21 Savage’s “Rich Flex” in 2023. “Rich Flex,” as with “Like That,” also reigned on all four simultaneously (Feb. 4, 2023).

On Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, “Like That” is the sixth No. 1 for Future and first since “Wait for U,” featuring Drake and Tems, led for 16 weeks in 2022. He first led in 2014 as featured, with Chris Brown, August Alsina and Jeremih, on DJ Khaled’s “Hold You Down.” “Like That” is Lamar’s fifth No. 1 and first since 2017’s “Love.”; he first reigned with “Swimming Pools [Drank]” in 2012. Metro Boomin leads for the first time as a billed recording artist.


On R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay (which blends audience data on mainstream R&B/hip-hop and adult R&B stations), “Like That” leads with 17.5 million in reach, up 9%, May 17-23, according to Luminate. It becomes Future’s fourth No. 1 and first since “Wait for U.” It’s Lamar’s third (and first since “Love.”) and Metro Boomin’s first.

Concurrently, “Like That” debuts on Pop Airplay. While Future charted four titles at the format previously this decade and Metro Boomin reached the list twice in 2023, Lamar makes his first appearance on the ranking since 2018.

“Like That,” from Future and Metro Boomin’s collaborative album We Don’t Trust You (the pair’s first of two LPs in 2024), debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 dated April 6 and led for three frames. It ranked at No. 7 on the most recently published survey (dated May 25, reflecting data May 10-16).


We Don’t Trust You debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated April 6 and has earned 809,000 equivalent album units to date.

All Billboard charts dated June 1 will update on Wednesday, May 29, a day later than usual due to the Memorial Day holiday May 27.
