Chance The Rapper’s “No Problem” Is His First No. 1 on Urban Radio
Chance The Rapper has finally earned a No. 1 song. The Chicago MC's "No Problem" reached the top spot of the Urban Top 30 Airplay chart for the week of Oct. 31 to Nov. 6.
"I woke up to the news that I got the #1 RECORD IN THE COUNTRY THANKS TO YALL!" Chance wrote on Twitter today (Nov. 7). "PLEASE KEEP USING THE SITE RAPPERRADIO.COM."
Chance has used RapperRadio.com to recruit loyal listeners who want to hear his music on their local radio stations. The website allows fans to tweet at their local radio affiliates asking to play "No Problem." Looks like it worked.
Chance The Rapper's track took over the No. 1 position that was previously held by D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty's collaboration "Broccoli," according to Mediabase's latest data. Mediabase monitors and tracks the top rated songs being played at radio stations for a variety genres.
The good news comes on a day in which Chance The Rapper is trying to motivate more young people to vote in tomorrow's (Nov. 8) presidential election. The Windy City native's non-profit organization SocialWorks teamed up with Virgin Hotels Chicago to host a free concert in hopes of encouraging young adults to show up to the polls.
"This election is very important, a chance for new leaders and new opportunities to emerge," Chance said in a press release. "SocialWorks and I are proud to partner with Virgin Hotels Chicago, Boost Your Voice and The TurboVote Challenge to give everyone a voice in the democratic process and encourage people to vote, both locally and nationally.”
Chance The Rapper has not been shy about using his status to inspire his fans to participate in the election process. He also performed at Hillary Clinton's Get Out The Vote concert, which took place this past weekend.
