Roddy Ricch’s ‘Night’ Rises to No. 1 on Rhythmic Airplay Chart

Roddy Ricch banks a fifth No. 1 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Airplay chart as “Late at Night” surges from No. 5 to lead the list dated July 31. The single advances with a 17% burst in plays in the week ending July 25 to become the most-played song of the week on monitored U.S. rhythmic stations, according to MRC Data.

With the new champ, here’s a rundown of the rapper’s five leaders:

Song Title, Artist (if other than Roddy Ricch), Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
“Ballin,” with Mustard, two, Dec. 21, 2019
“The Box,” six, Feb. 22, 2020
“High Fashion,” featuring Mustard, one, July 13, 2020
“Rockstar,” DaBaby featuring Roddy Ricch, nine, July 4, 2020
“Late at Night,” one (to date), July 31, 2021

As it reaches No. 1, “Night” adds to Roddy Ricch’s winning streak on rhythmic radio. The single is the rapper’s first solo release since he wrapped the album cycle for Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, which was released in December 2019. Anchored by singles such as “The Box” and “High Fashion,” the project catapulted the rapper to major favor with rhythmic radio listeners and programmers, and he ended 2020 as the Rhythmic Airplay chart’s No. 1 artist of the year.

Beyond its Rhythmic coronation, “Night” cracks the top 10 of R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay through a 11-6 move. There, the song climbs to 14.1 million in audience in the week ending July 22, an 18% improvement from the prior week, and the largest weekly percentage gain among the chart’s 50 titles. Thanks to the five-spot jump, Roddy Ricch collects his sixth R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay top 10, following “Ballin,” “The Box,” “High Fashion,” “Rockstar” and a featured turn on Pop Smoke’s “The Woo,” (also featuring 50 Cent), which peaked at No. 4 last October.

The song also repeats at its No. 2 rank (its best yet) on Rap Airplay, though it adds 19% in audience in the latest tracking week. With growing support from its R&B/hip-hop airplay base, the track pushes 35-32 in its fourth week on the all-genre Radio Songs chart, as it picks up 19% in audience to 24.6 million.

Charles Connor, Drummer for Little Richard, Dies at 86

Charles Connor, known for being Little Richard’s drummer who performed with other music greats including James Brown and Sam Cooke, has died. He was 86.

Connor’s daughter, Queenie Connor Sonnefeld, said her father died peacefully in his sleep early Saturday (July 31) while under hospice care at his home in Glendale, California. She said her father had been diagnosed with normal pressure hydrocephalus, a brain disorder that causes fluid buildup.

Connor Sonnefeld called the drummer a “great father” who was always positive and a person who never gave up on his dreams.

“He was one of those drummers that was a bricklayer of creating that rock ‘n’ roll genre,” she said. “He played behind so many legendary musicians in the 1950s. He was a loving grandfather and was very proud of his family and took a lot of pride in his contributions to rock ‘n’ roll.”

Connor began playing drums at age 12. Three years later, he started his professional career when Professor Longhair, a singer and pianist, hired him as a last-minute replacement for the 1950 Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

After Connor turned 18, he joined Richard’s original road band, The Upsetters. The band appeared in several popular feature films including The Girl Can’t Help It with Jayne Mansfield along with Don’t Knock the Rock and Mr. Rock ‘n’ Roll.

During his career, Connor toured with various musicians such as James Brown, Jackie Wilson and the original Coasters. He also received a certificate of special recognition from Rep. Maxine Waters in 1994.

Connor released his motivational book Don’t Give Up Your Dreams: You Can Be a Winner Too! in 2008. He was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame two years later.

In 2013, Connor released his EP album Still Knockin’. At the time of his death, he was working on his autobiographical documentary.
