Hot Rap Songs

Hot Rap Songs (formerly known as Hot Rap Tracks and Hot Rap Singles, and also formerly called Rap Airplay) is a chart released weekly by Billboard in the United States. It lists the 25 most popular hip-hop/rap songs, calculated weekly by airplay on rhythmic and urban radio stations and sales in hip hop-focused or exclusive markets. Streaming data and digital downloads were added to the methodology of determining chart rankings in 2012.[1] From 1989 through 2001, it was based on how much the single sold in that given week.[2] The song with the most weeks at number one is "Old Town Road", with a total of 19 weeks.[3]
