Drake tops the Billboard Rhythmic Airplay Chart for the 32nd time, as his single “What’s Next” rises 4-1 on the list dated April 24.

According to MRC Data, “What’s Next” was the radio format’s most-played song in the tracking week ending April 18.

Drake, who has now replaced himself at No. 1 on the Rhythmic Airplay chart, by evicting Yung Bleu‘s “You’re Mines Still,” on which he plays supporting vocals, is way ahead of Rihanna, who has 17 No. 1s to her name. Usher (13), Chris Brown (12) and Lil Wayne (12) follow in that order.

On the Rap Airplay chart, “What’s Next” is now ranked No. 2, having advanced from No. 4, thanks to a 5% surge in audience in the week ending April 18.
