Post Malone’s ‘Enemies’ Conquers Rhythmic as His Radio Reach Expands


‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ album finds hits on pop, hip-hop and even rock radio – at the same time.

Post Malone’s “Enemies” lands him in friendly territory: No. 1. The single, which features DaBaby, arrives atop the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart dated Nov. 30 with a 3-1 move. “Enemies” gains with a 10% boost in plays in the week ending Nov. 24, according to Nielsen Music.

With the move, Post Malone earns his seventh leader on Rhythmic Songs, while DaBaby scores his first. The latter nearly topped the chart earlier this year, when his breakthrough hit “Suge” peaked at No. 2 in April.

Here’s a full recap of Post Malone’s Rhythmic Songs No. 1s:

Song, Artist (if others besides Post Malone), Weeks at No. 1, Date Reached No. 1
“White Iverson,” one, Jan. 2, 2016
“Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, six, Nov. 11, 2017
“Psycho,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, four, April 28, 2018
“Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse),” with Swae Lee, four, Jan. 19, 2019
“Wow.” five, Feb. 23, 2019
“Goodbyes,” featuring Young Thug, one, Sept. 21, 2019
“Enemies,” featuring DaBaby, one (to date), Nov. 30, 2019

Furthermore, “Enemies” is the fourth single from Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding to lead Rhythmic Songs, following its three immediate predecessors. The combo makes Bleeding the first album to house four Rhythmic No. 1s since Drake’s Views launched “Hotline Bling” (eight weeks), “One Dance,” featuring WizKid and Kyla (six), “Controlla” (two) and “Too Good,” featuring Rihanna (six).

Beyond the recent stranglehold on Rhythmic radio, the rapper-singer’s Bleeding album has expanded his radio clout and introduced him to new formats. Elsewhere this week, Post Malone’s “Circles” holds at No. 1 on the Pop Songs airplay chart for a second week and at No. 10 on the Adult Pop Songs list. Perhaps more surprising, though, the song climbs to No. 31 on the Alternative Songs airplay chart. The ranking is new territory for Post Malone, who cracked the chart for the first time in his career with Bleeding track “Allergic” last month.

Another album single, “Take What You Want,” featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott, has warmed up on top 40 radio with a 37-36 rise on Pop Songs. Rock radio has also taken an initial favorability to the track in recent weeks, having achieved a No. 28 high on the Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart and a 47-46 on the latest Rock Airplay survey.
