Miguel's 'War and Leisure' Debuts at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart

Plus, G-Eazy's on the rise with two different songs, while "Gummo" & NF hit the top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Miguel collects his second No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (dated Dec. 23) as War and Leisure begins with 40,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music. The R&B singer previously reigned with the one-week leader Kaleidoscope Dream in 2012.

As War breaks out, two of the album’s tracks make headway on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: lead single “Sky Walker” (featuring Travis Scott) zooms 23-16, while “Come Through and Chill” (featuring J. Cole and Salaam Remi) debuts at No. 44. The latter entry brings the singer to 20 charted hits since his debut, “All I Want Is You” started at No. 98 in July 2010

G-Eazy Gains: Rapper G-Eazy scores several notable moves on the R&B/hip-hop songs charts, beginning with a new No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay as his “No Limit” (featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi B) lifts 2-1. The collaboration rises 6 percent to 30 million in format audience for the week ending Dec. 10, according to Nielsen Music.

“Limit” gives G-Eazy his first leader on the radio-based ranking and marks both A$AP Rocky and Cardi B’s second. The former previously ruled with “F**kin’ Problems” (featuring Drake, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar) for one week in 2013, while the latter’s “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” completed a 10-week domination three weeks ago.

The radio gain helps the trio step one rung to a new No. 3 peak on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. “Limit” lifts to 17,000 downloads for the week, up 7 percent, despite a 2-4 drop on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales. The song is steady at No. 5 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs but enjoys a 2 percent weekly bump to 22.4 million U.S. streams.

“Limit” also rules the Rhythmic Songs airplay list for a second frame.

But that’s not all! G-Eazy has a second triumph this week as his collaboration with Halsey, “Him & I” begins at No. 9 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The pair open at No. 2 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales (44,000 sold) and No. 17 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs (13.4 million streams).
